Problems with second gear
First of all, I have the RE t-case drop kit installed along with the RE 3.5” lift. So far no problems with drivability, other than always having to hold onto the shifter when selecting 2nd, 4th, or reverse gears. Otherwise, they tend to pop out of gear when the clutch is first released. Now over the weekend while driving the Jeep on the street, I shifted to second and could not get it into gear. No matter what I did, it would not go into second. I reached my destination by skipping second every time, then tried it once more. Ramming it into second with a healthy dose of the throttle applied, the tranny finally found second gear again. Later on the way home, I had no trouble. Any indication of a major problem here? Maybe some of you have encountered this with lifts installed(?).

Locked @ both ends
Remove the shift boot and trim the metal around the bottom of the opening. This is common because you tilted the motor and tranny back.

this is from the lift, i had the same problems, i installed the b&m short shift stick from summit racing and that took care of it all. the guy who put my lift on suggested that we take the boot off, heat up the shifter and bend it so you can find 2nd 4th and reverse. i choose the first option. but just to make sure, you should take off both boots and make sure that the clearence is your problem. if you seem to be clear of the boots and you are not hitting sheetmetal when you hit those gears, you have another problem. hope this helps...
