Will a 2013 Shift knob fit 2006? Grand Cherokee

Looking at a shift knob that if off a 2012 grand cherokee would it fit on a 2006? It is nice and leather and says JEEP across it. I happen to like leather knobs more than plastic, go figure... If anyone knows if there is an issue with it please let me know! Thanks!

knob in question:

thread moved to right section.

I got a message from the seller of the knob that it will not fit, I dont know if he is sure or not but that is something to go off of.

I don't know because according to just for Jeeps the 2008 and 2009 srt8 shift knobs will fit all the way up to 2013 models and there is also a thread that a member here installed one from a 2008 on a 2011 so I don't see why it wouldn't work the other way around.... if you do it please let me know....if I end up doing it before you ill let you know

Well the ebay auction ended. Thing sold for less than $35. Leather, gray, but used. It was nice, should have just took the chance I am regretting that now.

So I guess the difference is the 05-07 shaft is maybe thicker than the 08-10 shaft. I picked up a 2011+ gray leather knob and it only goes down about half way. I will take a pic, but it sits a little high.

I could either bore out the knob(which may be the easiest option, just dont want to make it too loose) If I do this, the knob will only be good on 05-07 WKs.
OR
Cut the shifter shaft down, but then this knob is staying on forever cause the old one would sit too low.

any thoughts anyone?

Look up the thread where a member with a 2011 installed a 2008 shift knob and he had to bore out just a little bit...I would imagine it would be same type of affair...

I started boring out the inside, it kind of just stops and doesnt let me go any further. Whatever is inside there is stopping me. I left it on as it is right now, but its still too high. I like a high shifter but not with this type of knob.

must be the shaft length on the 05-07 that's different from the 08-10... I will post a picture of mine as soon as I leave the office. mine was also the srt8 shifter so I don't know if the difference is there too.

The SRT knob is the same overall knob I think, just some perforated leather and black.

Thanks

Ive already modified this knob, so I would rather make the knob work but it seeming like the issue is the length of my shaft
