@ Scittb: You would be using the "Jeep" medallion from your existing shift knob.
@ The rest of you scoffing at price let me put it into perspective for you.
I am speculating that Chrysler may have found it a bit on the pricey side as well so they decided not to offer the wood knob on the Overland.
- The Stock foam shift knob list for $80 but can be bought for $40 (Laredo E)
- The Stock leather shift knob lists for $114 but can be bought for under $85
- The Louisville slugger that GeorgeMD used to make his costs between $40 and $80 not to mention the countless man hours he spent to make the part with the first and then final version (so it is possible that he bought two bats for his project and why he isn't planning to make anymore)
The Company that I have contacted does Restoration and custom wood and Carbon fiber interior work on Rolls Royce, Bently, Range Rover, Aston Martin and Other luxury makes including Mercedes benz.
You would be getting a "made to order piece" for your shift knob in very low volume made with the correct specified wood.
I myself had expected that the price would be lower but if you want to commission a custom "made to order" peice for your vehicle that looks OEM sometimes you step up or walk away.
I have seen upgraded Mercedes Benz shift knob go for more than 250 and I am sure that they were not limited availablity custom parts as these would be.
I would like to see if someone had access to a company that would be interested in the project but so far this is that only serious bite I have.
With that said I did ask them if there was anyway to come down a little on the price and I am awaiting their response.
