If I didn't have an automatic I'd be running this. Very cool.

Now that you are living in Twins Territory are you a fan? Did you see the shots that Thome hit that last couple days.

Okay soo this was veryyy easy install!

took me 20 mins!

1. Take off the center piece of the shifter knob. (I used a pocket knife to pop it out)

2. Use a socket wrench to remove the nut inside.

3. unscrew the knob

4. The baseball came with 4 caps. Take the one the fits the best and put it on

5. Put the Baseball on the lever and using the provided screws and hex key to screw 3 screws in

6. YOUR DONE

Thumbs up

I haven't seen one like that before.
Looks really good man.
I think it would be cool to take it to some games,
get it signed up with your favorite players,
then put a sealer over the top of it so you can still use it as your shift knob.




I don't want to jack your thread,
but I was wondering if anyone has found any good replacement handles or mods for the Auto Shift Lever?
I've been looking for a couple years now,
and still haven't found anything.

I'm more into bowling. I have a 16lbs bowling ball on my shifter. It's far cooler.
