not too much of a write up because this is a super simple deal with parts that actually work right.
swapped out my auto shift knob for a custom tonight
Used the gennie adapter - lodapt 1051
this was the easiest mod I've done in a looong time!
the adapter fit and did exactly what it was supposed to do, if you have a knob with the right threads it will take you all of 5 minutes to do the swap.
Only goofy thing is that the adapter uses big goofy metric threads.
16mm x 1.5 thread
so its a PITA to find/make your own knobs.
to remove the stock auto knob, twist the base counter clockwise and it will slide down
remove the torx screw and it just lifts off
the adapter goes on with one set screw at the top and one on the side
you put thread locker on the side set screw and just screw it in until its flush with the adapter shaft, the thread locker holds it there after it dries
I don't like the crome adapter so I'll pull it back off and paint it with duplicolor bedliner.
Now to shift, you just push down on the knob itself and it moves about 1/2" instead of hitting the button
anyway, shifter selection is pretty much open now, you can use just about anything you can think of that can be drilled and threaded.
Heres a pic and yeah my rig is filthy
