Default New Shifter knob?

I want to get a new shifter knob for my truck (from like a 90 something escort)

Looks like this

The problem you will run into is that if the escort one is put on the same way the ranger one is put on you are S.O.L.! They are like press fit on there or something like that. When I changed out my shift knob it took me like 15 minutes to get the original off it is on there like nobodys business! Good Luck!

my original is already broken (i think?) One time I was shifting through gears, and the knob came off with my hand, so that wont be a problem........hopefully the escort one wont be that bad.....but will it fit?

Are the shift rods similar diameter?

Not sure if they are exactly the same but i would buy the escort one and if it doesn't fit go to a parts store and buy a cheapy shift knob and use the black sleeves that come with those to make it fit.

alright, sweet. The escort one shouldn't cost much at the JY, so I suppose I could try it.
