Gear shift hits after lift

After installing a 1" body lift and a 2-1/2" suspension lift, my gear shift is hitting something when I pull it back to 2nd, 4th and Reverse. I unscrewed and lifted the boot and found a second, rubber "diaphragm". I slid it towards my and everything seems to be fine now. Is there any problem with just drilling some new holes and mounting it there? Is there anything else I need to do?

Thanks

Check the tcase shifter as well to see if it's hitting the tub.

You came out fine. Usually, you need to trim a little of the tub to resolve the conflict.

This one?


I threw the ones in mine & my wife's YJ's away. Unnecessary IMO.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

Are they really? I think I spent like 2 hours trying to get all the holes to line up right.

Yes that's the one I was talking about.

It works fine with everything loose

I agree with pitching it. I threw mine away when I finished up my AX-15 swap. It was deteriorated anyway, and useless IMO.

Basically just a weather shield, but as the part ages it really hampers shifting more than it helps.
