I'm surprised no one said the knobs don't really come off of our trucks... not threaded like most vehicles.....

Sweet! It would be cool if you had to squeeze the handle to engage reverse.

You may have a set screw hidden somewhere, or reverse threads. You need a Jimmy Flintstone shifter anyway.

for the sake of shift knob stories...bought a 89 civic because i was broke and need a car. when i got it had no shift knob. i looked like a complete idiot driving it home not being able to shift, and having a bleeding palm (an hour and a half drive, and the top of the shifter was sharp). after that i needed a shift knob but was too broke to actually buy one, so i took a golf ball and drilled the center, and force threaded it onto the shifter and glued it in place. drove it for the entire time i owned it this way
