you can replace it. they're like a buck or two. i cant recall for sure on a jeep, but i think if you pull the brake hardware u can slide it in there without pulling the axle shaft. get a punch and a bfh to knock out the old one. then put the new one in and use lugs and washers to seat the new one.

otherwise, u'll hafta pull the axle shaft.

You can replace it without pulling the shaft, just be careful. Punch out the broken stud out, slide the new one in. When I had to do one, I put several washers over it and used a lug nut to seat it. Once you put the wheel on you can crank it down to seat it the rest of the way.

One of the easier fixes on a Jeep. The shop that put my wheels on managed to break one and strip a second. Took them longer to round them up than to replace them.

using the nut to seat the stud is risky (damaging threads) not saying cant or hasnt been done. but if you do it that way lube the threads so they wont gaul and be careful! tried that method on an old blazer 4X4 front hub-didnt go well.
