Shift Knob Installation

I purchased a pool ball shift knob to replace the knob on my 2011 JKU. Since its not threaded can anyone point me in the right direction on how to secure the new shift knob so its actually secured to the shifter and not just loose on top.

Of its an auto them it is tough. If its n manual just measure the threads and bring it to your local hardware store. Match the threads and epoxy it into the inside of the pool ball.

Sorry its a manual. There are no threads on the manual shifter for the 2011, the stock one is kinda just wedged on.

The knob should come with an adator thingy that slides over the shaft and has a tightening screw.

Thanks for the quick response, that looks great!

Do you happen to have any side views of the shift knob/shifter/console area?
