Correct grease for shifter, and cover removal?

SO I felt the need to clean this before I put it in. Had lots of grime on it. SO what is the correct grease to use i here without damaging anything. Ado is there a way to get that ripped boot off, or does the entire things need to be replaced?

my understanding is you cut the old boot off and replace it with a new one from Jerry. I have not had success removing an intact used one. I would imagine a light dab of chassis or wheel bearing grease would be sufficient. Once it is running, the motor oil should work it's way up there. Dennis

If I recall correctly, once the lever knob is unscrewed and removed, the new boot will stretch enough to slide down over that thick part of the lever. I have in the past removed that thick portion off the lower part - but it was an H of a job and not worth the effort.

I just did this on my Trooper and it was easy and the boot wasn't too expensive from Jerry. He included instructions: cut old boot off, place new boot in near boiling water for 5 minutes, lube gear shifter with dish soap and slide it on down. You will tear it if you try it dry. Worked a charm. The old boot on mine had been worn completely away at center and was pretty much done. Luckily the transfer boot wasn't so bad.
