Question lifted manual tj issues

I just got my manual tj lifted. 4inc skyjacker with 33inc procomps and ever since it got lifted ive been having issues with shifting into 2nd gear and sometimes 4th and reverse. 2nd gear grinds if I don't slam it back and it seems like the stick/shifter is shorter. I can get used to it but its annoying and seems like its putting stress on the gears? help??

I've heard some folks on here talk about removing the foam wrap pad off of the shifting stem. You have to take off the boot first. It didn't help mine much but it wasn't as bad as yours sounds. Good luck.

A transfer case drop was installed, which lowered the transmission changing the shifted orientation. You can loosen the shifter boot to fix the issue. Better yet, remove the tcase drop and install an SYE along with the other required components.

The most correct way would be the SYE and new rear driveshaft, but you are looking at about $500. Or more depending if you do the install. I actually took my shift boot completely off until I can get the 5 hundo together to do it right . So far so good.

When I bought my '02 the PO had installed a body lift. He moved the console back about an inch and when I bought it I removed the shift boot and all is fine now. I also had to extent the shift pattern for the 4wd a little as it was popping out of 4 low. All is good now and when the $$$$ come around ill fix it the right way.

I put on that same lift a couple of years ago with the same issue. The fix is to take off the foam tube thats on the shifter arm under the boot. It binds with the boot because the transmission has been dropped an 1 1/2".
