Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and as you can see I have a number of different shift knob options, all from Modern Billet™, fitting the 2011 and newer Mustang, available in your choice of either black or white resin, or satin or chrome Billet aluminum. Modern Billet™ is a company that specializes in making a number of different styling accessories for your Mustang. The first two options the bright chrome option, and the slightly more subtle satin option, work very well on the interiors of 2011 and newer cars, both have been CNC’d from a single block of T6 Billet aluminum, and I can tell you that because of this the knobs will have a good weight to them. The second pair of knobs do have more of a retro vibe going on thanks to the old school black or white appearance, these two have been CNC’d from a single bloc of either black or white resin, which is going to make them slightly different to the Billet aluminum knobs, for one, they’re not going to be nearly as heavy as those aluminum knobs, which some people will like while others like myself prefer a knob with a little more weight to it. On the hand those resin knobs aren’t going to get nearly as hot during the summer months or as cold during the winter months. All 4 shift knob options do come with this shift boot retainer which obviously fills the void left by removing the stock shift knob and holds the stock shift boot into place making for a cleaner appearance. As for the install, can’t get much easier here, remove the stock shift knob first, install that shift boot retainer, then screw the new shift knob into place. Getting everything done should only take you about 15 minutes from start to finish. The shifter is oftentimes considered to be the centerpiece in any interior, so if you’re looking to make a visual statement with your shift then be sure to check out one of these 4 options from Modern Billet™ for your 6 speed, right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Nostalgic Styling. Add the cool vintage styling of the 60's to your modern manual pony with a classic ball style Shift Knob. This shift knob is completed in a satin finish that features the 6-speed shift pattern in contrasting black, making it the ideal addition to your interior.

High Quality Materials. This retro inspired Shift Knob is CNC Machined from a solid block of 100% billet aluminum that features a satin finish for superior durability and a cool classic look.

Simple Installation. Just unscrew your old stock shift knob off and screw the new knob on, it's like changing a light bulb. The knob includes a shift boot retainer.

Application. This Satin Retro Style Shift Knob is designed to fit the 2011-2014 GT and V6 equipped with the MT-82 6-speed manual transmission or Mustangs with a 12mm x 1.25 thread pattern shift handle.

I would like to order either the 41217 or 41437 shift knob. Do they both come with the plastic boot retainer and if so is it advisable to order the aluminum retainer? Are these both the same quality with only the addition of the mustang logo or are they different quality? Thanks, Paul

Paul

  • Hi, Both the Modern Billet Retro Style 6-Speed Shift Knob - Satin Item #41217 and the Modern Billet Retro 6-Speed Shift Knob w/ Tri-Bar Logo - Satin Item #41437 will come with the plastic shift boot retainer, since both knobs come with a shift boot retainer there is no use for a aluminum retainer, Both knobs are the same quality.

    Great Shift knob... Not so great boot retainer...

    I was very pleased with the way this shift knob looks. It has a great weight to it and feels so "right" in my hand when shifting. My one concern, as was mentioned before, is the fit of the boot retainer. It would not go past the threads, no matter what I did... I even tried to sand down the paint a little to see if that would help, but it did not. So in the end I just used the retainer nut to keep the fitting tight on the shift knob and left off the boot retainer. It does not look "bad"... but it would look a whole lot better if the boot retainer actually fit correctly. All in all though, I am not dissatisfied. I just guess I will have to spend a little bit more money on a boot retainer that will fit.

    Boot retainer

    I just received the Satin Retro style shift knob. After reading the reviews, I bought the separate boot retainer. When I received the shift knob, the stock boot retainer that came with the shift knob was exactly like the extra boot retainer I bought. In other words, it is not necessary to buy the extra boot retainer. It sounds like AM was listening to the feed back. Might want to call to confirm this if your thinking about buying the additional boot retainer. Looks and feels great. Way better than the stock shift knob.

    • Response from AmericanMuscle

      You're correct. We have updated the retainer coming with the shift knob after hearing the original wasn't the greatest. If you're purchasing one of these, no need for the separate retainer. If you'd like to return the additional retainer, please do contact our customer service so they can get that taken care of for you!

    Good shift knob, lesser than stellar fit

    Like the title says. Don't get me wrong I love the shift knob, but one needs to realize a few things. The fit is good but not perfect as the knob is screwed down and then the boot retainer is loosened upwards to tighten the ball down in the proper orientation. This will result in a slight gap between the boot and the retainer that is only noticeable during installation. No one will know it's there but you will. Maybe the aftermarket boot would fix this, but I have a hard time spending money on a boot. I still recommend and like this product I just wish the boot retainer was a little longer. And before I forget, others have mentioned how hot this ball gets, but I would also point out that if you like to rest your hand on the shifter like I do that on a cold morning that it is painfully cold to the point that you won't be able to rest your hand till it warms up.

    Shift Knob

    This is a great product especially if you want to upgrade. It gives the interior a bit more sporty look without it trying to give that look. The satin finish blends right in with the rest of the interior. The only reason I give the fit 4 stars is because you really need the boot adapter otherwise it's going to look weird. American Muscle should sell the boot adapter with all the shift knobs at one price.

    Nice Shifter knob, not so great hardware

    This is a really nice knob, it feels and looks just like the one you can get from Ford with the Premium upgraded interior. Nice feel as you shift through the gears. My one concern is the fit of the boot retainer, it would not go past the threads I even used a file to get all the paint out but there was no getting in on as intended. I ended up just using the retainer nut and leaving off the boot retainer. It looks ok but is a bit unfinished. Other than that the installation is a breeze, 5 minutes. This is definitely worth the money considering the one from Ford is over $200.00 I would recommend this knob it really goes well with the interior.

    Looks good..... with additional $20 retainer

    Stock retainer is garbage. Does not even work with '13 without a big exposed gap on '13. Must buy the $20 Drake retainer for a $70 total. Not good. Looks good tho. Beware of extreme hot and cold weather. It is transferred to the knob. Especially heat from trans.

    This product is awesome. It adds just enough toughness while maintaining the sleek, sexy look of a shifter. It matches the interior perfectly and feels great in your hand. Its very good quality and installation was less than a minute.

    Awesome satin shift knob. Terrible plastic boot retainer

    Very pleased with the the aluminum shift knob, but the plastic shift boot retain supplied is terrible. It would not fit over the non-threaded portion of the 2013 factory shifter. I found a chrome shift boot retainer from somewhere else, and it looks and functions. I don't fault AM because their service is great and the shift ball is really the most important part. Great price too!

    Nice part, odd finish

    The knob fit perfect, no problems there. My only complaint is that the finish is a bit off....kinda splotchy I guess. Overall it looks good and added bonus: since it doesn't rattle like the stock one 90 of your shifter whine/ gear noise is gone now. I like it!

    Looks and feels great

    Looks great, feels great. Only wish it had a little more weight to it, still loads better than the stock knob. when you tighten the collar up to the knob it leaves the boot a little bit loose but nothing you'll ever notice after the install. with the metal knob I feel more connected to the shifter since its not being isolated through plastic, padding and leather.

    Returning

    Ordered this knob and the entire set of dash bezels in satin. Do not purchase of you live in a warm to hot climate because this knob gets HOT! Even if you have a remote starter function, this knob stays warm for several minutes with the a/c vent blowing directly on it. Knob is much smaller than some of the competitors higher priced products, and I was not at all impressed with the quality of any of these products. They are indeed solid billet, but all three bezels that I received were bent so I had a tough time getting them installed flush. Keep in mind that they are "satin" and not "brushed" aluminum and as such don't match the brushed OEM accents. Definitely suggest ordering one piece initially to confirm that you'll want the rest.

    I really like this new shift knob. Looks great with my interior and feels great in my hand. Sized and weighted just right. Installs in minutes. Only drawback is the solid billet aluminum gets quite warm on a hot sunny day.

    Nice weight to it. Much better looking than the picture, the numbers in the picture look like they were etched with a pin. The actual knob is much better. And the tall skinny numbers go perfectly with the numbers on the S197 gauges.
