Shift-boot is the rubber around the stick-shifter and the t-case shifter .. it basically seperates the underside of your vehicle (dust, dirt, water, snow, etc) from the interior of your vehicle.
Snow can blow into that area, and melt/freeze causing some grief.
The snow will melt from the hot-parts of your Jeep - engine, tranny, t-case, axles and such - but when its colder out, the melting process may turn into a freezing process soon after you get out of your rig.
