New Shift ****

After several mods outside the truck (... and others still to come), I decide to start changing something in the interior. I was looking something to make it different from stock, after checking my wallet, a new shift **** was the most affordable mod to get started.

Let me tell you that the removal of the stock **** was a pain in the a$%&. I tried everything that I found in the forum and after failing in all attempts, I opted for the blade, so this involved the total destruction of the stock **** !

Here some pics of the new one. I saw tons of different models but this match the color and doesn´t scare my girl like the skull shape ones !.

x2, I’m waiting to hear.

The ball is different but it stands out.

How did you get it attached, would be interesting for others who endeavor to achieve the new BALL look.

Why the RED BALL ?
(CAPS indicate how the way the RED BALL stands out, ) LoL...

hehehe, yeah I know. When you enter the cab the first thing you are forced to see its "THE BALL" heheh.

I choose the color to match the truck color, the gauges and ... I don´t know how to describe it exactly but its like the "Big Red Button" inside a plane cockpit that, because the size and color you know its related to something serious....

don´t know exactly, but what I actually know is that looks far good than the "cheap-fake fast and furious-universal" knobes.

LOL

i vote you get on to painting like your bezel or something. it just looks to plain with that shift **** now. you can't be the guy that wears black suits and red shoes. you gotta add some more red in.
