6 speed gear shift knob

I've got a 08 JK 6 speed and I'm trying to replace the rubber boot on the gear shift. I'm having trouble getting the gear shift knob off. I got the three outer peaces off but can't get the main plasctic center peace off the shaft. What am I missing?

The shift knob is a slight press fit onto the shift lever BUT it is held in place with a "U" shaped retention clip... (read more here )

Some are succesfull by hammering, pulling and twisting it out, others are not. I went the "destructive" way as I wanted to have other shift knobs to begin with.. If you decide to have other shift knobs then the fix is easy..
