Can you shorten the shifter rod thing ?

Basically I'm trying to fab a custom shit knob and I want it to be as close to the selector base as possible. So does this thing come out with out any heavy modification ?

Re: Can you shorten the shifter rod thing ?

yes . to remove the stock shifter handle ,turn the chrome thing at the bottom ,I don't remember which way the chrome part will drop down and then you can pull the top part off . be careful when you cut it .use a vice grip or something(padded) at the bottom to hold it securely it's not a cheap part. I threaded mine to put a custom knob on it . I had 1 of the kids holding it for me ,and they slipped once and I tweaked it . so now upon occasion I get a little rattle but it stops as soon as I tap the shifter.

EDIT: looking from top- turn chrome part counter clockwise - also the top of the rod is not round ,so if you cut it to far, you cant reuse the stock knob
