shift knob

i'm just new to the jeepin' world. i bought my '95 yj about 3 months ago and it's bone stock except for the 15"x8" american racing outlaw I's that it rides on. I recently bought a new shift knob for it(for comfort reasons) but i can't seem to figure out how to get my old shift knob off. please help. thanks! [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: shift knob

It should be the same as my TJ here are the instructions for my TJ Grab tightly...turn and rotate left(rotate the knob and not yourself [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]).

Re: shift knob

Alternately he could remove the top, secure the knob on a roof-mounted jig, and rotate the Jeep clockwise.

Seriously, though... it should simply unscrew. Might need some channel locks (and a rag) to get good leverage.

Re: shift knob

That would probably work best in the winter with lots of ice, making it easier to spin the jeep.
