Shift stick hitting center console

Let me begin by saying I am really enjoying this forum. I am a new owner of an older wrangler ('88, 2.5, 5 spd) and by searching and reading I am getting many of my questions answered. Just finished installing a transfer case lowering kit; definitely reduced high frequency vibration from driveshaft to a tolerable level. However, in lowering xnsfrcase/transmission the shift stick is now hitting the center console. I am going to pull the console; any suggestions on a replacement?

I forgot to mention I really enjoy driving this thing. Makes an old guy feel young; not as exciting as a 4-5 rapid in a small boat but fun all the same.

There are many to choose from. Just look at Whitneys or 4x4parts or any of the other suppliers. You could also just screw an ammo box in its place. Wouldn't be the first one.

You can just bend the stick so it won't hit the console?

When I installed my lift with a drop bracket for the t-case, I just grabbed my sawzall and cut about 1/2 inch of material out from behind the shifter. I have not noticed a difference in road noise or heat by doing so. The hole is still covered by the shifter boot.
