    So I must suck at searching because I cannot for the life of me find out how to change the shifter knob/pistol grip. I want to put either a dragonball knob on there, or something sporty or a glow on the dark knob. I know this seems insignificant but whatever lmao, if so it shouldn't be hard to learn how especially if it's as easy as just screw it off.

    So if what little I know about these, it is a little screw on the part where the leather booth is you have to screw it out then screw the shifter, hopefully I am right or someone else can come and save us both. Welcome to the forum for Baltimore, MD

    If you have the stock arm the ball won't come off.You need to buy this shaft from Dodge (P5155284AB).The aftermarket shifters like Barton & Hurst are changeable.

    To my knowledge the pistol grip handle and shaft are all one piece. Mopar makes a short throw ball type shifter that's nice, I installed one of those on my old R/T, cost less than $100 and felt much better. The Barton/Hurst are a complete aftermarket unit with new brackets/forks and is a more involved install, but also with better performance.

    You would be much better off just buying the Barton and get it over with. You will like it

    Ok thanks guys. I had a feel that was the case but I was hoping not. Maybe I can get the Barton after I get my tax return

    Barton is worth it! Be careful with the clip on stock boot cause it'll be a pain. I broke mine because of a lil extra glue on it trying to separate it from the factory pistol grip. Don't rush it.

    I agree, Put a Barton on my 2009 SRT8, I could not recommend more. Installed myself found it to be an easy change out.

    It's an easy DIY. Just be careful with the leather when removing the glue.

    Let me clear the air as i have had a ton of sports cars and have installed performance shifters in everyone. The Barton shifter in the challenger is the best shifter i have ever installed hands down. It is pure engineering perfection. It is worth every dollar and if i could only do one modification to my challenger this would be it, its that good. And for your sake , for your man card, for any lady riding with you, its doesnt offer a glow in the dark shift knob or any related dragon type images lol.

    Does anybody have a pic of the clip that holds the boot on ? Trying to replace ball shifter back to pistol grip. I knew something had to be under boot to make it fit tight.

    Small zip tie works just fine.
