ajorosa My rock knob gets very cold. I keep my sons baby socks on it all winter. A cool way to remind me how small he was.

There is a set called a tap and die set....the taps are for taping holes with threads and the dies are for making threads on a rod. They look like a nut but have special cutting edges on the inside.

This is the set I started out with a long time ago...

Ok but how hard or easily is that done the shifter has i think 1/2 threads and then adaptors for the shifter is 1/2'' - 20, 3/8'' - 24, 3/8'' - 16 and 5/16'' - 18 so how would i adapt it to these threads the 05 TJ is 10mm right

Peepers I have a t-handle shifter, I just haven't gotten around to putting it on.

DerekM I found a picture of mine! It's custom made

jeepjones The best place to buy cool & custom shift knobs are hotrod shops, they'll have a wide selection and good prices.

JustLearning Dang, hard to choose now. Those rock Knobs look awesome but I still like the grenade, and I don't have a transfer case knob to have two, I just have the lever.
01-12-2011 12:04 AM
BLEGAN Oh and the rockknob is so awesome. I almost got a grenade though... I liked them too. But I think the rockknob is more comfortable than the nade would be
01-12-2011 12:00 AM
BLEGAN The slot is directly to the left of the shift pattern.. It's virtually impossible without the perfect tool though. You're bound to chip the knob.. So if you plan on ditching the stock knob anyway, I'd say cut around the shift pattern or just cut the rubber off entirely. There's a plastic piece under the rubber that you could twist off with some big pliers or use a 16mm (I believe) ratchet to get the nut off and then it will just slide off.

You have to pop the middle piece out with like a flathead or something. Cuz it's bolted on underneath that middle piece. Just to warn you, if you take it out, it is really tough to get back in. Also it might cause some damage to the knob itself

05wrangler if you have a TJ and cant get the knob off I THINK there is a small slot between 2nd and 4th gear on the pattern that you can pry from there.

Seanomck I love my rock knob I got it for Xmas. But to remove the old one I had to take a utility knife to cut the rubber along the vertical end of the cover. After removing it you may be able to cut around the circle that's got the gears labeled and there is a bolt on under there. But I knew I was gonna keep the rock so cutting the old one really didn't bother me

YJPunisher213 I went with a pineapple grenade. Army Surplus $9. Hit it with the drill press, welded a nut onto it and screwed her on. Gets a lot of comments.
