A little help please...

I have searched the forum and can not find help on what should be a pretty simple task. I have a 1995 YJ(5 speed trans) and I am trying to replace the factory shift knob....

How in the heck does this thing come off???!?!? lol

I have seen threads on how to remove different TJ knobs, CJ knobs, knobs from auto trans... but nothing on how to remove the shift knob from a '95 YJ manual trans.

Also, I'd like to thank ALL the people who post on here. I haven't been a member long, and do not have many posts... but I have used this forum soooo much since I've been a "JEEPER". THANKS!

I know on our 90 you have to loosen the nut on the bottom of the knob. It looks like it is apsrt of it but I turned it the opposit way and it moved away from the knob. I don't know what yours looks like.

There should be a tapered nut just just underneath the knob with 2 flat spots for a wrench. It might even be chrome. Put a crescent wrench on it and hold the knob while you loosen the nut. Remember to go clockwise to it will go down the shaft away from the knob.

SUCCESS AT LAST! Both replies helped me tremendously. That bolt and the knob had seized... rusted on. I had to cut into the old knob & then use to cresent/pipe wrenches to remove it. Had to take a wire wheel to the threads for the new knob to go on. LOOKS GREAT! Thanks all!

Pic attached. Just a plain ole shiney black ball. $24.99 on ebay. The seller does not have the matching knob for the 4WD gear shift. Any suggestions where to look for a matching one?
