I tried this question over at Challengerforumz with no answers so I'll try here.
I found this picture of the P5155284AB on a 2016 Challenger. Considering the boot hole is around 3/4" on the later models, I don't know how they got the boot to expand over a 1 1/2" shifter base. Is there anyone that's been successful getting it to slide over this base? I know the o-ring will have to be cut.

The o-ring will most likely have to be cut. I had to cut mine to install my Barton shifter, and even then it was a difficult challenge to get it to fit. I wound up wit an aftermarket shift boot at the end of it all.

According to some questions on Amazon, the boot will fit snug and you'll need to zip tie the opening once you remove the o ring.

Thanks for the responses. I see in the video that the boot really has to be cut/enlarged. That's the commitment I was hoping to avoid, but a new boot is inexpensive enough if I want to reverse it.

Just finished the job and in fact the boot does not have to be cut. I just wet the leather at the hole and it slid over the shifter base. Still was tight but it can be reversed without buying a new boot. I had the short adapter prior to this and the mopar is slightly shorter and the shift points feel better for some reason, possibly because of the robust construction.
