    Interesting but I am curous, thinking of the stresses that will be put on the knob durning use (shifting), what is the material you will be using for the finished piece? Also, seeing the proto's size in contrast to your (I assume) hands, I wonder how comfortable it will be to use.

    Im going to use 2 part urethane plastic, its comfortable, not like a oem, but itll work, thanks for your concern

    It doesn't look very practical with those horns, i can imagine a few missed gears.

    Wouldn't it be better to have them curled at the sides of the head? ( purely from an ergonomical point of view )

    In an import maybe, but in a jeep miss a gear..... I dont think so, it looks like that but youll se at the end its more comfortable than it looks
