Does anyone have a good source for the shifter boot? The one I bought several years ago cracked. Funny that it's been in the garage all this time and the shift lever has hardly been moved yet it still cracked. Just cheap crap I guess.
You are lucky. The brand new one (Made in India) I installed on a customers CJ ripped apart on installation. Borrowed my 55 year old used boot until the replacement arrived. _________________ 1960 M38A1, M100 Trailer

To clarify Wes what I meant was there are reproductions for sale from all of our vendors, some of which are poor, and some of which are new USA made.
The boots that Pete is selling are new, USA products, not cheap imports.
Iíve talked with Pete, and John, and George, and I believe if anyone bought a
product from them and it didnít measure up they would want to know.
It is entirely possible to get a bad batch of anything. I bought some repop brackets a while back that were made incorrectly. I contacted the vendor to see if maybe I just got a bad set. But after checking they found the whole batch they received was incorrect. I received a refund, and they went back to their supplier.
Which, if you read all of my posts carefully I have iterated the same line on the parts in the past.
My only question to you was. Your post:
Iím sure Pete has products from both camps.
This from his website:
Transmission Shift Lever Boot - M38/M38A1
led me to suspect you meant Pete has two different source boots in stock when you only listed one. The answer that he carries only one and sometimes they can be good or bad would have satisfied my curiosity. _________________ Wes K
