Once again, it'd be a whole lot easier to just move the console back an inch as many do. Take it off, redrill the floors in the hole 1" further back and remount it.
One more thing you can try first is to remove the neopreme piece that is at the bottom of the shift lever underneath the shift boot. Pull the shift boot away from its mounting flange by grabbing it at the corner and lifting up. You'll see the neopreme tube underneath that is there only to support the boot... that doesn't really need supporting. That piece of neopreme can restrictsthe shift lever throw a bit after a body lift has been installed so removing it may fix your shifting problem. It can't hurt, I took mine out 7-8 years ago for this reason.
