got it installed and my truck wouldn't shift. The lever was hitting the
metal bracket that goes around the rubber boot. The bracket could be modifed but I think I would have to hack out the whole center section and the rubber boot I think would still feel like it's beeing stretched - because it is, it's 2" higher and the lever throw is further than what it was. So what should I do to fix this? Any ideas?

Thanks
TBob

Think I could help you out. I had the same exact problem 3 weeks ago on my truck. I posted here and was given a few options. Check them out here .

However I don't know the year of your truck and where it is rubbing. Mine was only on 2nd gear.

On my buddies jeep, when he first did his lift, he had to drop the tranny & xcase down so the driveshaft angles would be ok, this left him with almost the same situtation as you. We ended up bending his shifter at the base a bit. Problem solved.

I turned the bracket over and mounted both boots and the bracket from the bottom. Problem solved. Did this by using some longer bolts and some 1" spacers and I cut some heater hose for the noise. So I dropped my whole shifter boot and bracket an inch and I'm happy with it.
