    When I purchased my 2002 TJ, I noticed that the shifter knob is upside down. Is there an easy way to get the know off and turned around?

    If it's a manual the knob should unscrew.

    If its anything like the JK the knob can be a b*t*h to remove. As mentioned pull up firmly and remember to keep face out of range.
