I finally got the hole cut for the 4wd shifter, installed the backing plates, and painted it for rust prevention. The shifter will get bolted in tonight and I can cut the carpet and see how it plays with the center console. Here are the part numbers I'm using.
Rod (4L60E Auto, or 5 speed manual only)
Floor Panel Transfer Case Control Opening Upper Reinforcement
Floor Panel Transfer Case Control Opening Lower Reinforcement
