Default Custom Automatic Shifter ****?

I saw someone on here made a custom automatic shifter ****, it was an 8 ball. I was wondering how hard would it be to do something like that? Can anyone explain some details and how to!!?

Thanks,

CW

Drill a hole in a pool ball, there is a shaft that has to be depressed to change out of park. You either have to make it to where the ball just holds that down constantly or make it where you can push the ball down

If you hold it down constantly once you turn the engine off to you be able to start it again u less that pin can pop back up I had the same problem with my old zj

There is a great write up in the XJ section. This guy mounted a grenade and used a nail as the push down pin as a good anti theft devise.
I'd post a link but I'm on the app.. : (
