Shifter Knob Removal - Manual Transmission & Transfer Case...
This was performed on a 2010 model but would assume its the same for 07-10 just proceed with caution just in case..
Small Flat Screwdriver
10" Adjustable Wrench (crescent wrench)
Small Ball Peen Hammer
Clean Shop Rag..
Football Helmet with Full Face Guard..(my dentist recommend this option)
Use the small flat screwdriver to pop off the bottom caps on each shifter knob (pointed to with red arrows)
Then take your Adjustable Wrench and size it to just fit the arm of the shifter
use you shop rag between the shifter arm and your wrench to prevent scratching
NOW..USE EXTREME CAUTION !!!
Put on your Optional Football Helmet or have a partner be prepared to catch the knob ??
use your Ball Peen Hammer and tap UP WARDS on the head of the wrench (NOT SUPER HARD) just enough to persuade it
and POP it goes ....
Do the same for the transfer case knob and you are ready to install your favorite aftermarket knob..
I chose the Drake Offroad Black Billet Aluminum Set .. Great Product very pleased with them...(little chilly to handle in winter)

** Not Sure if this method will work on the Automatic Transmission Knob?? **
if you are installing the Drake Shifter set, you may find that the base of the shifter knob is slight larger than the shift arm... this can be corrected by applying a couple wraps of hockey tape to the arm (just enough to make it a tight fit, then lightly tap the knob with a rubber mallet and tighten the set screw .. this will eliminate any side to side movement causing the knob to come loose..
