99 wrangler tj sahara shift shaft lever question?

Ok so i got my wrangler not to long ago and the previous owner said he had jb adhesive welded a corsa shift knob onto the shift shaft lever. I tried pulling it off and wow that stuff is tuff to get off meaning i cant. I dont know whether i should torch it off or how i am going to get this off because by the looks of what every one elses tj all the others are threaded mine is rather glued to the threads with (jb weld) I really want to by a boot and screw on knob that was meant for the jeep and i dont want it to look like a ghetto race rice rocket please suggestions... ill post pics later

You can purchase a stock knob easily and I believe you can find just the actual shift rod (not sure what it is called) if you can't get the old knob off. Ebay is good for finding parts sometimes.

I've bought from both those sellers with no issues.

Grip it with a big set of channel locks or Vise-Grips and try unscrewing it...that may work, it's what I would try. Even though it's cold welded on it may ride up the threads. If it won't I would just pick up a nice used shifter and knob like xxBOsoxFANxx mentioned.

Yep, channel locks work good. If you plan to reuse the shift knob (which it doesn't sound like you are), be sure to use a good chamois or thick towel to protect the knob from the channel lock teeth.

JB weld is supposed to have something like 40,000 lbs of tensile strength if its the good stuff. Lol. goodluck.
