Hey guys, I am new to the forum as I just purchased my first Jeep. It’s an 06 Jeep Wrangler X. When I got it, all the carpet had been removed and they had herculined the pan. I thought it was great. Then I began to notice a ton of heat coming from all around the shifter and the shifter column (it’s a 6 speed manual). I popped the bezel off, looked underneath, and noticed the inner boot was essentially gone allowing all of that heat into the cab. I ordered the new OEM part, installed it, but now it is really stiff and tough to get into 6th. Sometimes it will even pop out of gear because of the stiffness of the rubber. Is this normal? Is there a break in period or something I should consider modifying? Thanks for any info you can provide.
