Shift Boot Replacement?

So I realized today that my shift boot kept popping up. When I got home I removed it and saw that the plastic "snap in" ring had broken. I was wondering if there is somewhere I could get a new boot or even one like this. I really appreciate the help and does anyone have websites?

Also, what is the technical term for the plate one?

That is called a gated shifter, and the plate is a shift gate. However, I'm not sure if that's an option for jeeps....

Yeah I got a four banger, big whoop, wanna fight about it!?

I just took my boot off completely. It seems to engauge and shift better, if you dont mine the look of a bootless shifter.

Mine ate the boot!! Well I broke the retaining ring and it fell in. Shifts easy though!
Violence may not be the answer but it sure cuts down on the stupid questions

You CAN superglue it back together, just do it carefully. I've glued mine a couple of times.

I also epoxyed mine once, just take a look at it and see if you can fix it, you don't need much to hold it in place once fixed

Yes...I was going to suggest the same. Redline is who I will be getting one from.
New vendor onboard :)
