    Which shift knob do you guys like the best? My interior is all tan and I plan to get a black 4x4 transfercase knob to match but it would be the start of an interior upgrade...

    trd leather ball- $23

    obx knob $37 but 15 from a fellow TW member

    trd auto looking gear shifter - $30.95

    I have the TRD Leather wrapped and the carbon fiber print thing in the middle gets ridiculously hot during the summer but other than that it is pretty comfortable in my hand.

    I have large hands and the TRD leather shift knob (3rd in your pics) I got feels great in my hand. The stock one was too small.

    Thanks for the pick of it in your truck man, Good info on it too.. Mom actually wanted me to get that one haha...

    Cool looking shifter man, But, I wouldn't think I would drop that, especially since it is a 6 sp knob.

    Definiately an important factor, I have big hands too and have never had anything but the stock so I wouldn't know. Just have to go off recomendations. I hear the ball ones are pretty good except for heat.

    I saw it in your build thread and would have to do my 4x4 knob too haha. I just threw that up there and forgot to add (One of the guys I talk to alot on here (thats you Madjik) has this knob and I would be copying him for sure lol not a bad price on it though

    No problem man. I have pretty big hands (I'm about 6ft tall) and it fits well in my palm, but like I said, I get out of work or on lunch and its been baking in the sun for awhile and i have to grab from the side.

    Man, I think I would have a reflective windshield cover on at most times and tint done thursday... and I think most of these would bake in the sun IMO but it is definately something to think about.

    Lol. My friend has one in his jeep and it is actually really nice to shift with once you get use to holding it. It definitely has a different feel, but I like shifting with it
