    Well I got bored and started experimenting with some different shift knobs. First I got a 2nd gen tundra knob. It was abit to long so I shorten the bottom chrome piece about an inch. Then I bought a FJ knob and that was way too long so I cut it down 1.5" and resecured the tapered end on it. Then the last one is a toyota aftermarket knob (by autobahn kraftwerks) which I ran for awhile but wanted something different. Take a look and lmk what you think.

    If I had to pick one of the stock one (which I like), I would go with the Tundra.

    Where did you get this one? Is it metal or painted plastic? If it's brushed metal, I like it!

    The Tundra shift knob is my favorite - nice work!

    Its aluminum with a rubber insert. I found it on a site while searching for auto shift knobs... I don't recall where though. Let me look though my emails and see if I can find the invoice. It was $54 if I remember correctly.

    And Thanks Fink :thumbsup:

    I prefer the FJ knob. Where would one pick that up?

    You can get a fj knob from your dealer but it won't fit unless it modified. Yesterday, after I was 90% finished, I figued out secondary way to cut it where it would keep the buldge that this one had at the bottom. I might find another one and give it a shot.

    The tundra knob feels masive when shifting. Its a toss up between it and the FJ

    I like the new knob in the 2012 Tacoma's.

    As soon as dealerships can start ordering parts for them, I'll be getting the shift knob. :D
