Just installed a 4 inch skyjacker lift on my 06 tj an everything's seems to be great except it won't shift into second gear I know the problem is the shifter is hitting the body around the under boot just wondering how to fix it I'm sure I'm not the only one I have this problem
My jeep had this problem when I got it as well as not being able to shift into 4lo (PO put a 4" suspension and 1.5 tcase drop and a 2" BL) he had an extension welded onto the shift lever and cut the floor board a little...You can go that way (the cheap and chinsey way) or do what I have since done, an SYE and ditched the drop, as well as a Novak cable shifter on the tcase. Cost some $$$ but it's done right now
My JEEP helped win a war, your HONDA cuts my grass!
FIX the issue--don't just use bandaids. You started out slow right out of the blocks by going by going with a basic Skycrapper kit that's too tall. If you want to fix it, you need adjustable rear upper and lower control arms (good ones), a SYE, and a double cardan drive shaft. It'll feel better than stock at that point, at least in terms of smoothness and your trans shifter positioning.
Sorry I'm not made of money and I can't afford a thousand dollar lift kit and I'm pretty happy with MY jeep rides pretty good and It does everything I need it to but hey thanks for putting me down. Trimmed the floor about a 16th of an inch and it shifts fine now problem solved
I don't think he was putting you down. Just pointing out what you would need to do in order to fix it right. Hacking your jeeps tub up isn't the best fix and you still sacrafice clearance with a tcase drop. Slow down and think before you bite someones head off who was just trying to help.
Glad it worked out for ya metal. Ran into that problem in my 06 i just put 5.25" on. Couldnt hit any of the lower gears. Think it actually had alot to do with the MML though tiltin the shifter. Driveline angle was perfect....just didnt have 2,4,6,R lol. Trimmed the lower boot a hair...then bent the shifter itself with the jaws of life. Shifts perfect now
