Need help getting the boot!

Hi all, so we ahve an 05 TJ with a 6 spd 4.0, 4" lift 1 inch TC drop. Problem is the shifter hits the lower rubber boot flange, so I've modified it to shift into all gears but now theres a gaping hole. How have you fellow 05-06 6 speed jeepers sealed this?

Thanks, Don

I'm gonna seal mine by getting rid of the tc drop and getting a new boot. I have some time now since the heat won't feel so bad during winter. I have tried putting a towel around it, which works until you have to shift, then it just opens back up. Mine is way past gaping.

Thanks for the reply but I'm looking for a fix from someone with this setup, possibly pics. I have zero driveline vibs so the drop will stay for now.

No problem. I do have the same setup, and I even contemplated heating the shifter to take some of the bend out of it so I could replace the boot with no bind. Most people just leave it cut. Heat pours into the cabin unless you roll the windows up. Don't know if that works with a soft top though.

Maybe try removing the tc drop and putting in a mml? That may put the shifter in a different position. Never dealt with that problem though. Just a thought.
