4x4 shifter seal and boot?
'94 V6, 4x4, automatic

New to these trucks.

I cannot find the name of, or part numbers, to the rubber seal/boot (with metal trim ring) and the outer leather boot (with snaps) that goes over the 4x4 shift lever.

Without them, I have a very nice constant blowing heater in August in Louisiana.

Crown Automotive J5353263 Transfer Case Boot
Addressed my Fred Flintstone hot engine air circulation issue from no Nissan oem or aftermarket chassis specific replacement for the transfer case rubber (or leather) boots.

However, by measuring and eye-balling, I ordered a Crown Automotive J5353263 Transfer Case Boot (currently $20 on Amazon). You have to drill two (2) holes and punch three (3) holes to install slick as hell. No trimming or other mods necessary.

Crown boot, base listed as 4 X 8".


Finished installation. Don't have the leather trim (yet) but that "could be" a Nissan boot it fits so nicely.

Finished with center console removed.

You just put the Nissan trim ring up one full fold of rubber on the "pyramid". Then punch/drill your holes where required. I drilled the rubber for the two (2) factory studs, and punched it for the three (3) factory screws. Note the factory forward bracket in the pic, that had to be removed for install, or you'd have to trim the rubber boot.

The rubber does not stick out on the left, but it is just under the lip of the trim ring. Plenty of overlap for clamping down securely.

You can see the oem screw goes right through the rubber.
Note: That damn trim ring is SHARP. Non-finished at the factory. I cut myself, then sanded the entire circumference of the ring before proceeding with installation.

Getting all civilized in my cabin. :dathumb:

Bringing this back from the dead - Thanks Shawn for the write up and link, I was able to find the exact same boot (though it's $30 now!).

The only thing I can't figure and am even more confused after seeing your pics is how to remove the shifter knob? Mine is actually different than yours, it doesn't just go from the knob to the single shifter diameter, it's attached to a bigger diameter shaft that fits over the shaft diameter shown on yours.

In other words, I'm leaning towards someone replaced the shifter knob and permanently glued it onto the OEM shaft. So I think I'm going to either have to cut the knob off and install another aftermarket and/or cut the brand new pristine boot and tape it back together or something, which is kind of depressing. Will put some pics up later.
