Shift knob for manual transmission.

Hi. I have 2012 wrangler arctic unlimited. My manual shift knob broke so when I went to the dealer and they told me that I will have to pay $70 for a new one. I was under the impression that if the car is under warranty they would replace it for free. Now I am trying to get a custom knob ( I would rather spend $70 on something that I like). I found a website www.americanshifter.com but they told me that in 2012 models they changed to non threaded knob. Any suggestions on where I can get a custom knob?

Honda tried pulling that effin sh*t with me when i had my SI. I broke the button to the e-brake and said it wouldnt be covered because it was a wearable item. They wound up replacing it. You just got to give them shit long enough. Dont be an a-hole about it though. That never made anybody wanna do anything lol

That should be covered under the 3/36k warranty.

and any 'universal fit' ones should work - you just use set screws in the collar to secure it to the shaft....I've got an 8 Ball from them on my Compass and I've ordered a 2 Ball from them for my JKU (both universal fits)
