I'm shopping as we speak. I wish they made Gears of War bobble heads but Master Chief will do just fine. Thanks for the idea.

Years back I had a cousin that took the 'sack' off a buck he cleaned & put over his shift knob. Just thought I'd share

& for the record we weren't close & it kinda freaks me out to this day.

A lot of the Humvee guys buy stuff from this place. Lots of cool stuff in the ordnance section like dummy grenades for $10.

You can fill any of those holes with JB Weld and then drill and tap it with the right threads.

Had one of those on my 79 Cherokee. Like the feel of it, and fits comfortably.

I recently mucked up my stocker removing it so I've been looking around. I want a plain old round or even a stocker but may give in to one on this site.
Sickspeed.com

I already tried one of the universal fit types and found they suck and eventually come loose (punchy skull knockoff form advance auto)

BTW replace the ring with a standard key ring and you wont have any sharp edges to snag your hand on.

I went with the rocknob. It was the first mod after I bought it. www.rocknob.com I went with the cheapo one without the shift pattern. I get lots of compliments on it.

I'm thinking about doing the same. I like the old schoolish white:

Buy whichever ball you want (pawn shops have then usually), drill to fit then squirt a little bit of epoxy in and screw on. Tada
That's how I did it
