My wife casually placed a gift on my desk at the office and said with her bedazzling smile that "she hopes i like it and its for the Dodge truck" I asked for what reason and she said its a small belated Fathers Day gift from her and the fur-babies (we don't have children of our own).
I was thinking wow she actually went our of her own way to purchase a gift that pertains to the Ram.. Normally it just the approval that i can buy a mod myself so this peaked my interest.
Anyway i had no idea what it was. Opened the bag and to my surprise it was a 8 Ball Shifter Knob for my floor shifter. What i noticed is the quality of the ball is different than the standard black ones you get at a auto store. To start, its Red but its more like a Pearl Flake Red that REALLY POPS in the light so I don't think she got this from Autozone. What is also amazing is that she actually researched to make sure that it came with the right thread adapter. She is sufficient in part numbers and adapters etc since she a Photography Enthusiast but it's still amazing.
I asked her what made her think of this. She said that the 8 and RED was to compliment the badge i have on the tailgate which is along the lines of a Red 8. I thank and kissed her and she was beaming in her own way.
Anyway i put it on during lunch hour and it fit perfect with the adapter thread. It does not really match anything with the interior but i can live with that.
It came with a decal that says BOMONSTER.COM which i never heard of but from the design of this knob and to get the attention of my wife i must say they must be good when it come to gear knobs.
One thing that's welcoming this mod is that with the temps being so high the B&M handle was extremely hot to the torch and it was going to get hotter.
Anyway - below are pictures of it. Color is not for everyone but she really put some thought into it so for that i am blessed to have a awesome mod like this.
