Separating the shifter boots

I need to separate the shifter boots in order to accommodate the 3" body lift from the previous owner until I can afford to replace it with a 1" and upgrade the springs.

My plan is to fabricate a new plate for the tranny hole, but I was wondering if anyone else has done this and how you went about separating the shifter boot into two or possibly using a setup from something else.

I have already heated up the tranny shifter and bent it to keep from hitting the body, but the tc shifter doesnt seem to have enough there if I try to bend it. I could always try.

Any ideas or suggestions?

I think there might be enough

Metal on the tcase shifter mount that you can cut some of it away and redrill the top holes to move it in tighter to the transmission.
Might be able to get as much as 3/4" maybe,
You can notch the tunnel a little to get some more clearance also.
