Quick 4WD linkage question

Hey guys, i Have a quick question involving my 4wd shifter linkage in my Jeep TJ. Today my shifter broke again and my jeep is now stuck in 4LO, the shifter rod let go bellow. I am wondering whats the best way to put the rod back into the hole? I find it doesn't want to go in completely, and I am also thinking about welding the rod into the hole because this could become very troublesome in the woods offroading. I had it fixed before, then it let go. Then i kind of fixed it by using Radiator clamps to hold the rod in place, now it has let go again. I tried adjusting the nut on the end, however I can't seem to keep the rod in place. I am not looking to spend much money as this is my offroad warrior and not my DD. I just want to shift without worrying about the rod falling out. The following pic is the spot i am talking about, and the shifter rod that falls out.

Would welding the rod in be a okay method?

Get a Novak cable shifter and be done with it?

I went ahead and welded it, took 5 minutes. And works like a charm, i can't see the shifter breaking off again. It is in the hole and welded all around. I appreciate the replies just couldn't spend close to 200$ on it myself
