I alwaly have the **** come off when I'm shifting hard. It's really annoying, but it reminds me I'm dumb for having not glued it on yet.

well what i did on my 01 was pull off the whole shifter and put the **** in a bench vise and squeezed the crap out of it until it split the just stuck a screwdriver in there and split it all the way also if you cut the plastic cover piece out of the way it helps

as far as the ne **** goes i got it from bruce over at koolknobs.com
looks pretty sharp IMO:

Try a heat gun as well. I know before I had my hurst, if it was really warm out it would slip off when I was shifting hard into second. I think Shane got domed when trying to pull one off lol.

But seriously get one of these, best thing I ever did to my truck.
