Water Dog I just bought a stock shift knob and center button from the local Chrysler dealer. $24 for the knob, and about $5 for the button. Here's some pics so you can kind of see the way they go together. The ridge on the button interlocks the groove in the knob, and the top of the knob slightly covers the top of the button.

thgr8alex The other part to that black plastic thing stuck on just unthreaded from the stick with the help of some pliers. Looks like the stock shifter now! Now i just need to place my order for my shift boot and buy a shift knob. Thanks for your help Sarge!

People like to make their jeep their own. PO probably just liked the knob that he put on there. I doubt there was anything wrong with it. Mine was in perfect shape when I replaced it. Lol

Looks to be the stock shaft. Here is one for $20 on eBay http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...d=111070733076

There are tons of aftermarket options though. Today I made a baseball shifter and of course the pool balls that I make.

That is a picture of a stock shifter. Look all the way to the right of the pic and you will see the threaded portion.

As for the shift boot bardofett on here under the commercial section of the buy,sell,trade section makes shift boots that look really nice.

The last three pics are of the stock shift knob I took off mine when I installed my camo pool ball shift knob.

That will likely be the case with any used one you can find. Not sure what they cost new but I've heard around $50-$60.

thgr8alex Also if anyone knows of a good leather or fake leather shift boot thats not real expensive im all ears. As of now im just gonna get one from autozone. But open to suggestions. Mainly worries about shifter knob thing though

Big Sarge That was some kind of after market shifter. The stock shifter is screwed on then held by a jam nut that goes in the center under the shift pattern. I make shifters and refuse to use set screw adapters for reasons like that.

BigDeaner I'm having a similar issue... Subbed for the responses.
07-16-2013 08:44 PM
thgr8alex This is the shifter stick and as you can see the top half of that black peice is in the pic below
Attachment 273791


This is the plastic or rubber peice that broke off of the shift stick
Attachment 273794


And this is the device that holds the shift knob and that has one missing screw and one stripped screw(quite challenging to get out..)

shift knob holder

So while im monstalining, for the first day of removal i left my seat in so i could drive and noticed it was muh easier shifting into 2nd and 4th without the console. After some research i found out body lifts will do that and a leather shift boot will help. So i removed my stock rubber shift boot and found out the device holding the knob in place is falling apart.. The plastic thing inside broke in half. One allen head bolt is gone, another is stripped. No wonder my knob is so loose. Ill be replacing the shift boot but was wondering if there are any fixes or alternatives to this? Will post pics in a min
