Jeep Shifter Knob Install

Jeep Momma Shifter Knob Install

Searching for this How To on the internet is deceiving. Some YouTubers make it look really easy to remove the factory shifter knobs. In my efforts to replace mine I realized it isn't as easy as they make it look. My video is a real representation of how the shifter knob swap will go.

Transfer Case Shifter Knob Removal

Install Steps 

Remove the old shift knob. First, with a flat-head screwdriver, try to detach or pop the bottom collar down away from the shift knob. There is no reason to remove the top silver cap. 
Once the bottom collar is detached you need to just pull up on the knob. It is supposed to come right off. The Transfer Case Shift knob is a lot more difficult to remove.

I tried to braced my legs on either side of the shifter, and grab onto the knob with a tight grip. I then pulled as hard as I could. It popped off on the first yank!

The next step was to slide the new Drake Shift knob onto the shaft. Then the directions stated to use the original screw removed to tighten it onto the shaft.

The set screw is in the shift knob. With a small allen wrench you can tighten it on.
