|jwb1637||I had the same issue with my 05 and a 4" lift, I took my boot cover off and used a dremmel tool to cut some of the sheetmetal out underneath the plastic and trimmed a little plastic also. and never had the problem since then. I was very careful and you cannot tell it's ever been modified. Also going from 1st (first) then into reverse does work. at least it's always worked for me.|

If your lift involves either a body lift, or t-case spacers, your shift arm is pressing against the boot, and thus not getting full range of motion. I had the same issue after i lifted my TJ, but its an easy fix.
If you look at the shift lever, it is angled down at the bottom. Since the position of the transmission, relative to the boot/console was changed if you lowered your tcase, the angled portion of the lever is hitting the boot when you go back into reverse. To correct it, just take off the lever, place it in a press or vice, and slightly straighten the angle of the bend. Dont go too far, only about a half inch will do the trick. If you co too far you will be hitting your hand on the bottom of the console when you shift into 1st, 3rd or 5th.
This theory is easy to test, too. Just remove your boot and see if it helps.

|Explorer_of_the_Void||Oh okay, makes more sense now|

|InvertChaos||The reverse doesnt have syncrogears if i understand correctly so putting it into a forward gear first syncs it.|

|Explorer_of_the_Void||well thank you, i will test that one out|

Reverse Gear Issue
My '06 always pops out in reverse, so bad in-fact that everyone who has ever driven it makes me reverse out of spots before they drive. I have gotten good at jamming it in, but I want to resolve the problem altogether. I have heard linkage issues, and my shift boot getting in the way. Any ideas on it?
