Shifter problem after installing lift... Need help.

7 tj i6 auto. fliiped my jeep on its side a few months ago in a deep rutt in gorman. I was riding shotgun when it flipped and i fell on the shifter, I might have bent it not sure, still worked fine shiffted into all gears fine , after installing a 4" lift I cant shift into 1st gear. The other gears work just cant drop the shiffter all the way down. Not sure if its becuase of the lift or prior damage.

Pull the handle off of the shifter and check the plastic piece inside the tube, they are known for breaking. Had it happen to me a while ago to where I couldn't shift into low or park.
