its a pull off... its a pain in the ass to get it off... i ended up cutting the rubber part off of mine then theres a plastic shell, used a hammer to break that, then a hack saw to cut the next layer (metal shell) and more plastic under that. (this was on an 07) i ended up cutting ~4" off the shift handle and putting in a threaded bit so i could easily add in a twist off... ill upload pics of my truck later today for you.

heres a pic of the threaded bit



and when the knob is on





its a little hard to see in the pic's but what i had to do was cut the shifter down a few inches and pull out some of the goop in it (its like a clear gel) then i got a pipe painted it black (the paint is starting to chip off and needs to be touched up) and then put a bolt with the right threading on, the threaded bolt slides into the lower part of the shifter, and the whole thing is JD welded togeather, i pulled the boot up onto the pipe and thats what it looks like. hope this helps.

yeah, its press fitted to the rod, and a PITA to get off. I hear that a heat gun helps, but im not sure. Luckily, mine was broken when I got my ranger and just comes right off when i need it to.
