    Welcome to the official thread for custom shifter knobs for both 1st Gen, 2nd Gen Tacoma’s and for older Toyota pickups and the T100 models! I will be offering 2 main types of shifters, the first will be wood knobs and within that option you can choose either a solid wood, or laminated wood (layered wood).

    I can pretty much make any solid wood shifter you would like!! Just tell me what type of wood you would like and I can make it! Laminated wood shifters are also very popular and honestly my favorite too, just think up a combination of any exotic or domestic woods you would like and we can think up some pattern ideas over email to make it have a full custom look that you like.

    For all orders you will need to either send me a picture of your current shifter so I can replicate the size and shape of it or send me dimensions of a custom size so I can draw it up to scale, and go from there. The last thing you will need to do before I can start your order, would be to determine the thread size and diameter of the shifter shaft that the shifters thread onto. I have some of the models sizes from previous projects for family and friends but not many.

    All Tacoma shifter shafts are metric I believe. The easiest way I have found to measure the diameter and pitch of the threads is to go to your local ace or hardware store and find the metric size nuts and go out to your truck and just test which combination of diameters and thread sizes fits perfectly, they should fit on perfectly to the point where you can thread it on effortlessly but at the same time it doesn’t have any “play” in it.

    Pricing

    Pricing on these shifters will range from $60-$180 depending on the wood choices, solid or laminated.

    Shipping and Local Pickup

    I do require that you pay for the shipping which normally costs around $5-10 for most knobs. Ship to the lower 48 states. If you live locally here in AZ (Phoenix/East Valley) you can pick it up from a mutual location. The shipping fee would be added to the knob price and paid all at once. Local pickups do not require paying via paypal, but can be if needed.

    Thanks!!!!

    Must be pretty baller to have access to a 3D printer capable of printing working threads. Or were you planning on gluing in a threaded aluminum insert?

    The wood knobs look awesome by the way, wish I wasn't poor.

    is there any way to add weight to them, to improve the shift throw? or are these heavier than the stock ones already?

    They are heavier than stock ones for sure, although I'm not sure about how it would help but, any size you want will help fit into the palm of your hand for comfort!!!
