Can you explain the process for getting the stock one off?

the plastic piece on the bottom slides down, its on there tight. i used 2 trim removal tools to wedge in there and pressed down on it. also, i recommend wrapping a rag or something around the base of the shifter shaft. something fell out when i pressed down and it disappeared into my shifter :( . not sure what it was, may have been some dried up glue, hopefully i wont have to take my shifter apart to get it out.

this will expose a c-clip holding the knob on

use a small flathead screwdriver or small pliers to pull the clip out. the knob will then slide right off.

Haters gonna hate..

I got flack about adding decepticon stuff to my car..
I have a billet aluminum badge on the hood, 2 smaller logos on the sides toward the back, and my shifter.











Doesnt stand out as much as yours.. But yours reminds me of the old RatRod logo

to each is own!! but in my opinion :(

too bad doing anything like this with the MT is much harder for short shifters and such, not so much the fugly knob :p

I have manual. I wish I could change the knob. But we have the reverse lock out thing to deal with. I like the green skull personally. Would be cool if the jaw could be made to activate reverse.

I take it the aftermarket has not caught up to this yet?
Too bad, for me I don't mind the reverse lockout too much, but it sure does get in the way of a knob swap
