Jeep Shifter Knob Install

Finally -- the weather warmed up enough to be able to do some Jeep work in the garage. I was able to start checking off some of my Jeep "To Do" list items. The first thing I decided to tackle was changing out my shift knob to match the transfer case shift knob I received for Christmas.

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.
