In these Jeeps, the shifter and body-side pivot are both bolted through the sheetmetal under the carpet. When we are in the junkyard, we have no problem just cutting carpet to take out the shifter and pivot plates. However, on our own Jeeps, we’ve found it is easier just to pull the front seat or seats and carpet to install the parts. The shifter bolt holes are pre-existing and the shifter hole is covered with a block-off plate. The body-side mount holes are not pre-drilled, however the floor board is stamped to show you where to drill.
