  • Changing shifter knob

    I have a Hurst, Nascar anniversary shift knob that I was going to put on my Chevelle (Should fit a Competition Plus), it never made it, so I was thinking about putting it on my 2000 TJ. It has a buch of adapters in the package, but I worked at getting the shifter knob off the TJ and couldn't. I understand you can pop out the shift pattern plate and there's a nut under it, but I heard it was almost impossible to get it back in. I also heard you could just spin it off if you could get a good enough grip on it, no luck. Any ways, the main point here is if anyone knows if the new knob will fit befor I start hacking up the old one?
    Thanks,

    shifter

    I put a hurst t-handle shifter on my jeep. It came with all the adapters and it fit great. What I ended up doing to get the stock one off is by using a 12" pipe wrench. It messed the shifter up but it came off. I like the hurst shifter alot better anyways...

      Do they just spin off?

        Yep, they are threaded.

          Well I got the shifter knob off, though I did end up mangling it up pretty good getting the shift pattern cap off, but the Hurst knob went right on with the inclosed adapter, never would have thought a part from my pro street Chevelle, would fit my Jeep, go figure. I have bigger hands, so it's a lot more comfortable then the stock knob too.
          Thanks,

            Believe it or not.....Not sure if they even make it for a TJ......but my jeep I just got came with a hurst short throw shifter(findin more junk that was added on to it everyday it seems).....I checked ebay and I couldnt find anything like it.....Havent checked hurst's site tho. Its quite a bit lower but I like the knob....and the bling bling stainless hurst engraved arm aint half bad either.....at first it was really notchy....now that Im used to it I like it alot.....anyone else got one of these?

              hurst and b&m both make short throw shifters for jeeps. and between the two they make one for pretty much any manual tranny jeep put in. and our host sells them.

                Except for the SR-4, but if you have one of those you want to jack up the knob and put a different tranny in anyway! lol
