    Shift lever extension

    This would be the metal bar with a bend that clamps on the shift lever in order to bring it closer to you.

    does the existing knob un-thread from the stalk?

    If so, one would be easy to fabricate. And if there are concerns with bending/breaking off at the high stressed root of the threads, a tubular collar could be incorporated the would
    go further in and bottom against the tapered? stalk or fit tightly if not.

    Never mind! I re-read your post, thought it just needed extending, although a 90* extension with a lock nut would work if the stalk is threaded or can be.

    The knob is part of the lever. I can get what I need but won't cough up 90 bucks and go through an authorized dealer to get it. Was hoping someone had one laying around for a little less.

    If you didn't mind funky, you could get a universal shift knob and a piece of steel rod. Narrow the knob end and thread it for the knob.
    Bend the end as you'd like it to be coming off the existing shifter.
    Get two U bolts (cable clamps) the smallest size that fits over your stalk, and have them welded onto the underside of the extension, pointing in the direction of the steering column, and clamp it on.

    There are be a number of ways to fabricate it, was just thinking someone here might have an extra or one not being used anymore. Will wait a little longer before diving into it, its not a rush issue.
