Sorry, Bam-Bam I just saw your post. My jeep was a 5 spd, so when I pulled the plate from the hump, the opening was large. After my install , I just measured and cut a piece of sheet metal for the opening and rolled it to fit the hump. Its not difficult,but its a hit or miss thing just keep trimming till everything clears. I then found a shifter boot on ebay. Mounted everything. I did silicone the replacement sheet metal cover. After bedlining the interior, it looks factory. Hope this answers your question. Hardest part was coming up with my support crossmember design. I incorporated the support into the stock skid plate.
