    Just added a new Grey TRD shift ball to my truck. Its the coolest little addition I can think of for the dollar. Changes the entire feel of the truck, shiftwise that is.

    Please post pictures and a link to where you got it from. Otherwise this thread is fairly useless.

    Just thought if he was so happy with it he'd want to show it off.

    OP: What does it change about the shifter feel? Give me some more info here, I'm starving.

    Certainly like the looks of it. Wonder if I could tap it to fit my auto.

    Now you need to think about a URD SS
    Shifts are from a truck feel to a sports car feel
    Much more enjoyable

    Apoligies for being useless just figured that if I typed in grey TRD shift knob i would get the same result every time. Theres are dozens out there and i didnt have time to put up a picture, the feel of these is way better in my opinion they give you a more positive grasp on the shifter then the stock one. I compare it to the T handle without the constant urge to slam the hell out of it. I purchased mine from a local dealer called Menlove Toyota you can get them on ebay, FJ sites, and the TRD catalog had them last I looked. They arent to hard to find if you use GOOGLE. LRGRNR has a pic of one up, that is what it looks like. Thanks for throwing that pic up, at least your not useless.

    If anyone wants my help tracking them down hit me up. However if you ask me how to install one im going to ask you to sell your truck, and buy a nice little dress.

    The 2005+ mustangs have the M12 1.25 thread we need so that opens up your options a lot. I picked up a white ball just like the TRD one but in 5spd, looks great.

    So would you guys recommend the white 6 spd shift cue ball for the URD short shifter (for weight and feel)? I would love to see a pic of it from a little farther back for the look aspect too. :p
