Rubber Chicken
 
Hey! My new JK Unlim Rubicon (Manual) shifter boot feels exactly like one of those gag rubber chickens. I'm thinking of replacing it with an actual rubber chicken, unless someone has a line on a leather boot or something less cheesy.:rolleyes:

Lol we need a pic of that. Maybe you will start a new cheep mod. Good luck

Do it!

I think this would be a GREAT mod. I used to have a rubber chicken hanging from my rearview in my pickup plus misc stuff my wife and kid bought to hang there. In the Jeep I don't have anything hanging - since I know it's going to bang around too much offroad.

One thing to watch for when you do this, I understand that the boot has been redesigned due to concerns about it pushing the stick out of gear in some positions. Make sure your chickenboot isn't pressing against the stick!

LOL! I'll apply for a patent and send it to NHTSA for testing first.:banned:

Funny, I'm reading this thread on my phone while in line at the bank, just reached down and grabbed it, and it's so true, never noticed that before.
