can't get into 2nd 4th 6th or reverse

I just completed a 4inch lift 05 unlimited. I knew 2nd might be an issue and may need the floor board trimmed. But all my down gears? Has anyone had this issue....

I had this same problem with my black diamond 3 inch lift. im not sure what the proper remedy is but what I did with mine was I unbolted the shifter from the tranny then cut the lower part of the shifter and welded it to where you can shift into those gears. Worked for the past 3 years with no problems. Hope this helps

That 4-inch lift must have come with a t-case drop too. I had the same issue with mine in all the lower gears on the pattern. In my case, it was interfering with the plastic console. You can unbolt it, move it an inch or so back and drill new mounting holes or trim the console where it's interfering. I heated and bent my shifter to make it clear.

You just need to check everything the down shift comes in contact with and do some trimming.
