    After I installed my TRD short shifter it felt unbalanced and fragile with the stock shift knob. I purchased the M1 Abrams satin finish knob with the gear pattern engraving I attached. With the new knob and the increased weight the shifter has a solid, well balanced feel when driving. One thing I like about the shift knob I installed is that it looks like it could be stock to someone who is unfamiliar with how the interior normally looks. Unfortunately there was a problem with the ordering and I ended up recieving and paying for two, so I have one to resell. With the engraving, and shipping the total cost came to $165.85. I would like to recoup my expense in purchasing two of these so make me an offer.

    i have to give you a bump. man twm performance knobs are the absolute best i have seen in the aftermarket i had a big type r on my 2010 mazda 3 and it was awesome.

    when i bought the tacoma i put on a black M1 abrams with the 5 speed logo on there and its so nice! good luck with the sale these things are very very nice! and on a side note the finish on these things is super durable i have never scratched one in the last three years of owning them. my wedding ring is tungsten carbide as well btw so if it was going to scratch i'm pretty sure it would have happened by now.

    these things are worth every penny guys no shit. my M1 abrams weighs almost a pound lol it actually really smoothed out the tacomas transmission shifting is effortless. and they make other models that are even heavier but, the M1 abrams just looks like it belongs in the tacoma. btw iirc mine was about 120 shipped so this is a decent price for one of these.

    Thanks for the back up stunt man. I love mine too and as expensive as it was i haven't regretted my purchase once since I installed it. On the flip side I'm not sure I'm a fan of the praise I get from the guys who bring my truck back to me at the shop. :rolleyes:

    I'm willing to stack the militar and the group buy discount for 20% off before shipping. At $132 that's a better price than you can find anywhere.
