T-Case shift boot doesn\'t allow 4L?

I have a Zuke with quite a bit of lift. I have about 2.5 inches of body lift. The problem that I am having is that the T-case shifter boot goes on but doesn't allow the T-case to shift and stay in 4L. Some of you must have come across this and I was wondering what some possible solutions are. I live in Canada and don't want a huge hole there in the winter. There cold enough thanks!

You have to juggle the boot frame around so the thinnest part is forward. I think I spun the boot too.

I also had to clearence the tub a bit with a carbide bit on an air tool.

Re: T-Case shift boot doesn\'t allow 4L?

K... I'm a little lost on your comment here. Just so there is no miscommunication I am talking about the shifter boot up to in the cab and not the one that is bottom on the T-case itself.
If you are infact understood then I am lost to what you are talking about. I haven't looked at the boot frame closely but I assumed that the half cirlce cut out of it is on the passenger side.
If I am making no sense let me know.

You got me. I'm talking about the cab boot too.

If you look at it, the metal retainer is thinner on one side than the other. Move the thinnest side to the top.

I think I remember moving the boot around too, for better fitment.

Finally, I cut away some of the tub where it goes into 4lo.

Re: T-Case shift boot doesn\'t allow 4L?

I don't have a problem witht the gear stick coming in contact with the tub I have and issue with the shifter boot applying so much pressure to the shifter that it pulls if back. I think that the only solution would be to cut the shifter boot a bit. I was just wondering if there was anything else I can do.
I'll take a look at what you have mentioned and try it though I have my doubts.

Thanks for the help

I just flipped my whole boot and metal retainer around. That worked for me.

Re: T-Case shift boot doesn\'t allow 4L?

I had the same problem after my 3" body lift. After some help with the people at Zukiworld forums I took out my console ( the plastic around both shifters ) and i noticed when i was pulling back on the 4x4 small shifter it was hitting some metal braket that was there to hold the back of the console ... i decided to remove that metal braket and it worked hehe .

Re: T-Case shift boot doesn\'t allow 4L?

I have no problems getting it into 4H its just 4L. When you guys say you just turned it around and it worked does that mean the rubber boot is leaning towards the front or back of the truck. Had this thing off for so long I can't remember which way it goes....

I second the beer comment

Re: T-Case shift boot doesn\'t allow 4L?

Please do as I am completely lost. I am talking about a Samruai and the way it is set up is a rubber boot slides over it and they a metal frame goes on top of the rubber at the base. Screws hold the metal frame to the rubber to the tub on 4 corners.
I must be missing something
