Ford Mustang shift boot

I have a 2008 manual mustang gt and I want to install a after market shift boot but I don't know what size I should use it has a universal fitment option but I'm not sure if that's it or not and would like some help figuring it out

I had gone down an ugly road with an aftermarket shift boot. Both in the color I expected and fitment. Thats just me though. Consider, if you find a decent local upholstrey shop, they will likely be able to do a nice one off custom job for you. You may also want to consider a matching ebrake boot.

What size though? The universal fitment?

And I also do have a factory shift boot so how would I put in aftermarket one on?

My apologies for not addressing the initial question. it was said to be universal. I had trouble with fitment around the actual shifter at the boots smallest point.

Be careful because sometimes the short throw leaves too much material. But the good news is you can trim. Always easier to go backwards..

I understand everyone has different experiences with different companies. For me, Redline is the one I had major issues with.

+1 That's why I posted the link to AM. I bought several items from Redline and none of them fit well at all. Also they sent me an arm rest cover that I had paid for the padding on, the one I received wasn't padded. When I contacted them they said I what I paid didn't include padding, so I went through the order process again and saved screen captures of the prices proving that I had paid for it. They were so screwed up they couldn't tell by the price that I had paid for it. Then they told me I had to cut the unpadded one in half and send them a picture proving I had done it before they would send me the padded one. Then it took almost two months to receive the padded one. I would not buy from them again.

My Redline products are sitting in a bag. Never made it on the car, and got tired of arguing with them over the return. They wanted me to use a zip tie to secure the shift boot,

Well, I ordered from them about 2007 when my factory boot was given a hole by the Pro 5.0 shifter. It was not a perfect color match, but that was made up with black boot polish. With a little wrangling it installed fine and has lasted since then. But that was almost 8 years ago, they may have gone downhill since that time.
