pokey I just remove my hand from the shifter and adjust the dials while I'm accelerating.

TJeepman Actually the feature about the shift positions, aligning with the heater controls, was picked up by a reviewer of the Jeep Wrangler back in about 2004. I came across it while doing some research re buying a 2003 back then.

Ever think you were in reverse and found you were in 4th instead? lol

Have you ever noticed, when in 5th gear, that with your fist on top of the shifter for steadiness, that your index finger can scroll through the preset buttons on your radio very easily?

I have often looked at my index finger location to see what gear I'm in. Great design. Was it deliberate?
no, and I highly doubt it was deliberate.

but I am concerned that you've been keeping your eyes off the road long enough to notice something as odd as this.

Ageless Stranger I hadn't noticed. But I will now. I usually know what gear I'm in though.
