Custom shifter colors? You betcha! Coming soon to a shifter near you!
 
So, I've done an autopsy on an '08+ LX/LC shifter and am very close to releasing a true plug and play color mod for this item!!!

Here's a pic in blue:

I'll be receiving a WK shifter very soon. As soon as I get my hands on this item, I'll be able to determine what will be necessary, if anything additional, for mods on the WK platform.

Keep your fingers crossed, guys. If this works out, it's game on and I will be able to offer the first COMPLETE interior color upgrade :thumbsup:

Watch this thread for details in a couple of weeks.

hey Bob,

all the Hemis and most 4.7 and a handful of 3.7 have a Lo switch. ill post up a pic of it in the shifter.

when i put my shifter together i would like to send this to you if you dont have it already for you to look at and see if it can be matched as well.

its a seperat little piece screwed into the shifter housing. the "4WD Lo" lights up/

LOADS of progress, last night, with the color mod prototype on the '08+ LX platform vehicles.

Working diligently on the '05-'07 LX platform shifter color mod.

Have a WK shifter and 4WD low button coming in soon. Hope to get his show on the road for the WK platform within a couple of weeks!

Stay tuned :thumbsup:

Bob

Nice. I'm going to get the rest of the interior done in blue soon. Keep up the good work Bob.

not to take your thunder away but one of our members here Hamze tried changing his shifter bezel color but the gel that goes around the bezel is what gave the color

I keep hearing about this mysterious "gel", but have yet to come across one in ANY component I've disassembled and modded (and I've done hundreds of them on Jeep/Chrysler/Dodge).

It's all good, man :thumbsup:.

I finished modding Robpp's shifter assembly to Blue, this afternoon and it looks amazing!

Stay tuned for pix and more info on this mod coming soon :)

Bob

P.S. Next, I'll be looking at the 4WD LOW button.

there isnt a color gel in the shifter, it was suggested that he add some colored stage lighting covers. it is a small led with a plastic piece that distributes the light on the shifter
