Fits perfect, and I was surprised how much noise a torn boot lets int the cabin. Much quieter now (I also replaced the boot below this that was torn as well. Both contributed to the change in noise level)
Perfect fitting replacement for a original torn boot.
This seems to be more flexible then the previous one I bought, hopefully it will last longer before cracking since the quality seems to have been improved.
1986 CJ 7 6cyl, Dana 300, 5 speed. 179K miles. Original boot was torn, allowing road and engine heat into cabin. Sloppy shifts, and noise also. This boot fit perfectly, was installed in ~5 minutes. I recommend using a flashlight if you install it at night in the garage. Solved all my problems, looks great, and wicked cheap!
order about 3 at a time to save on time and shipping cost. on my third one in a year and a half.
This boot is a direct replacement to the factory. Having used a few on T150s it seemed the rubber was always hard and tore prematurely. I have tried to boil it, soak it in oil and had no luck. The fix for this is to invert it. I am attaching an image on how it should look. Install it like this and you will get years of use out of it.
Absolutely great item. Made all the difference in the shift lever movement. Tightened it up, just like new again. Probably replace it every few years, just to keep the shifting mechanism tight.
First one split tring to install, second has been on for 6 months and is cracking from dry rot.
I bought this boot to replace the old one in my 1977 Jeep CJ5. It has a T150 trans in it. The old boot is tapered back towards the back of the jeep. This one that I bought is straight up, it needs to be tapered. When I try to put it in first or third the boot is so tight that it pulls it out of gear as soon as you let go of the shifter.
What about the boot directly above that. The one that seals the xmission hump floor pan to the stick and keeps the hot air out. What can we use?

I have a 86 CJ-7 with twin stick 4wd shifter, will this boot work?

Hi Stan, This Crown Automotive Shifter Boot isn't for the twin stick shifter for the 4WD, however we do offer the correct one.
