Default New shift knob with 3 inch extension for manual tranny.

Ah, now my arm rest perfectly in line with shift knob while on arm rest! Throw is only minimally longer surprisingly. Both items from SickSpeed. In case anyone wants to know for future reference...our thread size is metric 12x1.25. Took about 59 seconds to install. 8)

Flashback to my Isuzu Amigo (back when it was still a true ragtop - not the ruined 'Rodeo Sport' version). I had a custom shift knob very similar but with blended blue and white. I loved it, fits very nice in the hand.

Not a bad idea to raise it up to armrest height.
Enjoy!

I remember those! My brother in law had one down in FLa.

Yes it lines up perfect and its that much quicker from wheel to shifter and back..I love how rally cars have the shifter just to the right of the wheel and about shoulder height- barely move hand to shift then right back to steering. Now that would be a blast! You are right about feeling just right in your hand. The stock knob was plasticky..I didn't have the leather which I'm sure is fine. This one is 4 oz. and about the size of a cue ball...perfect 8)

Looks good, I dig it! If it had taken a full minute to install it probably wouldn't be worth it, though.
