leather shifter cover

Does anyone know if we can replace the 2007-2010 rubber shifter cover by the 2011 leather one ?

I have no idea, but maybe take a look at this: (Genuine Italian leather shift boots for your Jeep!). Good luck.

The 2011 has a leather shift boot?

Thanks MTH, I'll check it out.
I'll also call the dealer to know if we can interchange them.

-40 Celcius this morning, the rubber was stiff and I was afraid it would crack.

I had a really hard time shifting into gears.

Negative FORTY?? Good Lord man, humans aren't meant for certain temperatures. You realize there's land south of Canada, right?

Tom, I sympathize. Between the leather shift boot and replicating the indent from the Daystar caddy, I can hardly bring myself to get into my 2010 anymore. If somebody tells me the 2011 came with steering wheel controls for the audio, it's all over . . . .

WOW!! We had a day at Purdue last (maybe the year before) year when windchill was -36F. I thought that was bad, but I couldn't imagine an actual -40C/F.

yup -40C (with windchill) is pretty comon over here, just having trouble shifting... the jeep started ok in the morning though it makes a weird duck quack sound after it starts as if it released a jammed break or something, weird.

RB-10, your shifter looks great ! how complicated is it to install ? and how come you have those screws sticking out ?

Thanks hardest part was getting the knob off .the screws hold the new boot you have to drill out those fake screws to get the rubber boot off .i got them at ace hardware they are plactic i also bought some nuts to match had to use metal on them ..just tighten down line up screw heads(ocd) then cut them down to fit with side cutters .one of our vendors here was the supplier REDLINEGOODS.com

Is it just me, or does anyone else like the rubber shift boot better? I think the accordion style rubber boot just looks more appropriate on a Jeep.

The rubber boot is fine, just considering the options after the rubber cracks in extreme cold weathers... If it does.

So yeah I see the duck quack sound is comon, happy to have baptised it this way

Quack !
