I've been trying to come up with an idea for a shift knob too. I really like the spider gear!

As said Patrick H made it for me (he's my uncle). It feels good I really like it. I've had it about 5 months now and no complaints at all.

Fits a hand perfectly, is comfortable, isn't freezing cold in the winter, and won't slip when wet!

The first is when my previous TJ still had its 5-speed manual transmission. Its shifter knob is a rock with the outline of a Jeep etched into the top of it. Totally cool, it felt good in the hand. The hand throttle was one of the best mods ever done, it helped not only offroad to keep the throttle under better control on rough terrain, it could also be used to hold the RPMs up for winching or using the onboard belt-driven air compressor.

The next one is after I did the conversion to the automatic and installed a B&M shifter. Also with a hand throttle which I liked to use while rock crawling. I would NOT do another B&M (same as Hurst) conversion. It shifted like crap, was notchy, and was hard to get into the gear you wanted. With all the work it took to get the B&M worker shifting even reasonably, I knew at the end I wish I had just kept the stock shifter.

The wierd looking t-case shift handle next to the automatic shifter was a Novak shifter.

In my replacement TJ, after the Jeep in those pics got stolen, I am just keeping the stock automatic shifter. It looks like a granny shifter, I know, but it sure shifts great compared to my previous B&M.

Not hard but took some time. Had to buy the rod, drill it, tap it out, cut a bolt to fit the threads on the knob. Then cut the TC lever off and weld the new handle to the stub of the old lever. I do like it though....

I love the rock!
Can you post a picture of how you attached the remote throttle cable?

The remote throttle cable is just a kit I picked up from www.rubiconexpress.com years ago. Since they were bought out though I don't know if they still carry it... though it's worth a call if you want one, they may still have a couple of the kits around.

It's nothing more than a standard bike shifter & cable plus a bracket that RE adds to make it a little easier to mount to the throttle body. It sure works well, I'll probably add one to my current TJ when someone gives me a round tuit.
