Looks good. Do you have any other pictures of the knob? And how hard is it to install?

Thanks! It was really easy to install. Just unscrew your old one and set this one on and re-drill the new set screw location. You'll also have to cut off the end of the O/D pigtail and wire that to the new knob because the plugs for the O/D buttons do not match.

Looks amazing! Really gives the car a more luxurious look, while looking more OEM than most aftermarket shift knobs.

Your link to the Tousley Ford site isn't working for me but I dissected the URL to try and figure out which part it directs to - is it the shift knob for a 2008 Edge SEL you bought? I went to "2008 - FORD - EDGE - SEL - BODY HARDWARE - CONSOLE - SHIFTER HOUSING - Shift knob" and there's only 1 for $39.80 MSRP, $26.27 online price.

And by "re-drill the new set screw location" I assume you mean I'm drilling a new hold in the original auto shifter shaft thingy using the hole from the Edge shift knob because it doesn't line up with the original?

And is it hard to rewire the OD? Or is it simply find which is +/- kinda thing and electrical tape/heat shrink them together?

Awesome. $30 for a OEM-quality leather/chrome shifter is killer. Most of the garbage on eBay is >$50 and they look tacky/ricey. Definitely gonna' do this in the future!
