Stick Shift Knob 6-Speed

I'd like for my stick shift to be a little bit taller or the arm rest a little bit shorter. Impossible with the arm rest so it looks like the only option is to install a knob that is taller/longer than the stock one. I like the Drake off-road one, but not sure it's taller: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Any other ideas?

Here is the mod that I did. I used a cyclic stick from a crashed Bell Jet Ranger.

I have been thinking about this and tried to order them after seeing RB-10rubicon's pictures. Apparently Sickspeeds paypal account is not working for some reason.

I looked on ebay and found what appears to be the same ones offered by a seller named coreshifters.

Thanks - I got that one from ebay via RockNobs because they didn't list a #2 ball on their regular site

How did you guys get your shift knobs to stay on since the rod isn't threaded? I bought a knob off of amazon and haven't figured a good way to attach it yet.

Didn't know the rod wasn't threaded. Haven't come across one like that yet. I'm assuming the stock knob is pressure fitted? If so, the rod will probably have to be grinded a bit to be able to use epoxy.

Now wire a SPOD to those trim and radio buttons to make it even cooler!

Mine is a universal one with a collar, set screws and different sized rubber inserts to fit snug inside the shift ball.

In my second jeep I had a RockNob I loved the feel of a smooth river rock under my hand. I haven't picked one up for my new jeep yet but it's on my "to buy" list very soon.

Anyone have a grenade knob or know how they fit and feel? I want to get a black one but not sure how I would like it.

Ah this is exactly the thread I was looking for... a couple questions?

I've got a couple knobs from SickSpeed which I really like, but I absolutely hate the adaptors. They loosen up every month or 2 and I have to wrench the damn set screws down again (even tried locktite). I also had to paint the (originally silver) adaptor black, which is now wearing thin from my fingers on it. I'd love to find a knob that has a press fit and was wondering if anyone found one when searching.

Does the rocknob also have an adaptor? I like the look of the one above in the picture but I'm assuming they come in different shapes? How do they fit in your hand? Fairly comfortable?

Anything is better than that "Faberge egg" that they put on at the factory. Happy with the drakes.

SickSpeeds web ordering was down when I wanted one, so I ended up getting one from eBay which appears to be the same thing. Does the SickSpeed knob come with the 3 PVC sleeves?

I used the closest match to shaft and actually had to tap it down with a rubber mallet. Didn't feel like it'd move even without the set screws.
