Very good feedback, you mind sharing some pic's.?i have narrowed it down to the shifter boot (the one on the top, not the one on the sled) on my jeep anyway.I have had the whole console and boot assemblies out, putting them back in one at a time a few weeks apart, it didnt start popping out until i put the top one back on. I also had a meeting with the state jeep rep, he told me the "your jeep is the only one we know of that has this problem" story. So i was able to get his email address and permission to pass it on to others who are having this same issue so that the ball can start rolling on a permanent fix. If anyone is interested pm me your email details and i will forward his addy to you. it doesnt matter to him where you are from it just to show that the problem exisits. In the mean time, try taking off the top boot-the one on the console- and see if yours still do it and post up your findings. Mine seems that the boot does not have enough travel in it for the forward shifts, (i actually had it jump out of
3rd the other day on the way to the dealer with the boot installed) it like the hole for the stick is to far rearwards in the boot. the dealership checked part no's, there is no difference between the US boot and the Export boot, so yours will be the same as mine., i have some pics of takeing off the boot if anyone needs help, all you will need is a trim tool or even a butter knife and about 2 mins.
