Miss my manual TJ. This automatic shift handle is killing me, plus its cracked. Before I replace it with OEM, I need some ideas on how to customize it.

Didn't think of that. I guess it's not near a simple as a manual transmission. Check quadratec for shift knobs. They may have one for an automatic transmission.

This is something I have been contemplating a long time. One day in the future, I plan to go completely retro and replace my TJ dash with a more CJ style flat dash w the old analog instruments. At that time I will replace the center console and install a hurst shifter. They look just like stick shift but have a button for auto. Check them out. A few guys have used them in old Jeeps they have converted into autos but want to retain the classic manual look.

Sorry, my bad- NOT Hurst. Try googling Lokar shifters. Very cool stuff. Let me know what you think.

Yup manual for me. Put on a rocker shift knob and I'm all set :)
