      Hi, can this knob be mounted with the fingers facing towards the rear instead of the dash? I'm looking for a shifter knob that's offset to the rear. Thanks, Steve

          Zombie gear shifter knob

          Well designed knob but only thing it doesn't come with a shifter knob kit to properly install on the shifter.

          Shift Knob

          Not very hard to put on, looks badass, and it fits surprisingly comfy in your hands when you drive.

          Great mod

          This spooky hand is just what you need to most definitely make your Jerp stand out from the rest. The adapter is on back order so I cannot rate it in its entirety. I'll be waiting patiently for the completion of my order so that I can flaunt my newest addition,

          Looks amazing!

          This shift knob is perfection! It definitely gets some looks and comments. Install wasn't super easy, but that's because of the stock knob being difficult to remove on the JK. Tip: put a flat head screw driver in between the knob and the plastic housing on the bottom of the knob to pry them apart. Once they're disconnected, grab a wrench that fits on the shaft of the shifter just underneath of the knob and gently hammer it up. This will help loosen it. After that you'll just need to grab the knob with rubber gloves or some sort of grippy material, turn it to the left and to the right as you pull up and it should just pop right off. Another note - put the zombie hand on the adapter BEFORE installing onto the shifter so it's positioned the way you want it to be.

          Needs an adapter

          Says that it fits and does not state that it needs an adapter for a 1994 YJ. Aside from having that be a pain in the neck, I’m excited to get it on.

          Cool, and more functional than youd think!

          A little strange holding a fake dead hand.. but i love zombie/undead genre!! AND it extends further up than the stock shift knob, making it a bit more comfortable not having to extend my arm all the way out. I didnt think itd make a big difference but i love it and am glad i got this knob! Only lame part but not lame enough to remove stars, is that it does not fit without buying the adapter, which i overlooked. When i went back to look it offered to add the additional adapter to the purchase, but since i already bought it i couldnt find any option to just buy the adapter yada yada long story short i had to buy some adapter kit that had multiple for 20$. Just sell the knob with the corresponding adapter already included! Anyways enjoy this knob its awesome.

          Not sure

          I bought this as a Christmas gift for my son who owns a 1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ. He loved it however while the product advertises it fits this style and year Jeep, it does not fit. It is too large. Is this normal and is there a adapter to make it fit?
