oem knob $191: 25122283705

the 12" is way too high. the knob should be high enough where if you rest your elbow on the armrest you can comfortably reach the knob. either way, looking forward to your result .
That is a killer idea ! As a back up i am going to order the oem style knob and potentially just cut the top off it and sink it down into the top of the billet extension.

I am going to have like 3 different lengths made and find the best height to use.

Also like the idea of being able to reach from armrest.
