Inner shift boot advice

So I did a tcase lowering kit and had interference with 2nd 4th and R. I know it's the inner shift boot but idk if I should cut it or leave it out. What's the purpose of it? If I leave it out will it be Noticeably louder? I know it's a jeep and is already loud but want to keep the noise inside as quiet as possible cause I drive it long distances. Any advice is great!


Each driver has its limits, my limit is a little bit more.

i believe that boot actually also protects from water splashing or temps, besides noise. try unbolting the boot from the tub and see if it shifts properly because it might actually be the side of the shift hole in the tub is hitting now. but if you unbolt the boot and it works, drive around with it unbolted and see how it sounds. if it doesn;t bother you, leave it unbolted or take it off, it would be your call there

I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.

It's loud, lets a lot of heat in and water will come inside the cab. I drove around for 2 years without one, was quite the surprise when I was fording a stream and water started pouring out of my console...

Mine has only had the outer boot since I bought it about 9 years ago.

Thank you guys, I have had both boots removed. It's the inner boot stopping it. It shifts perfect without it in. But it's almost winter, and I don't want Cold Air getting in, along with noise. How should I go about cutting this so I can get the clearance I neec?

just trim it up with a razor blade, would be my guess. i think i did the same on mine when i swapped to the ford t-case.

Move the bottom plate towards the rear of the jeep, you should be able to get 1/2" or so. Drill new holes and bolt it back up. If that's still not enough move the boots towards the rear and drill new holes as well.
