Can't Seem To Find This Part...

Hi Everyone,

I can't seem to find this part online...

Maybe I'm looking for it under the wrong name,
I believe its called a "4x4 Gear Shifter Lever"... Maybe my google skills are not that good! Here is a photo of what I need. I broke the threads trying to unscrew the knob ! I have a '91 YJ with a 2.5L engine... Not sure if that matters for this part or not.


Any info on a site I can purchase one of these would be awesome...

Thanks in advance!

---Only Need The Part Outlined In Green---

I would take the lever to a local welding shop and have them weld a section of thread back on there. It sounds funny but all they have to do is get a bolt that matches the size and thread count. Cut the head off and weld on the rest.

That is the easiest/cheapest thing to do. I used to work in a machine shop in Oklahoma when I lived there. It is simple and takes about 15-20 min if they aren't busy, and doesn't cost much.

Did you get that circled section off the shaft? I've got the upper end that I'd be willing to part with. PM if you'd like to buy.

You can epoxy the shift knob on there too. That is what I see people do a lot. Epoxy is usually less than $5.00


Now if you have the time and tools...... I installed a body lift and had to do something with the shifters so I extended mine by drilling the center and threading it on the shifter and a new 1/2" piece of metal and threaded them together with a piece of threaded rod (I think it was 3/16). Then used a die and threaded the other end for the shifter knob. Then brazed them together. The 4wd shifet was just cut and extended the same way but my threads were intact. It looks good IMO, and was a good excuse to drink a few cold ones
This may be harder, but I had the stuff around.

@Master4th...Awesome diagram... Thanks very much.

@d5string... Not sure if I have all of the tools to get that done... But my uncle might! LoL... Not to mention I'm about to put on a lift so this will be useful information! It looks good too!

@darren636... Thanks for the offer... I will get back to you shortly if something else falls through.

@dutch_95... I've wasted sooooo many hours looking for this part on ebay, good find. I think I may be able to work out a deal here on the WranglerForums with another member.

Thanks again everyone I appreciate your help....This is the first time I really have tooken on any project that gets my hands dirty and its been a blast sooo far.

You are definitely in the right place to get it figured out on way or the other. Just in case you need to look on e-bay, I just entered "YJ shifter". Hope ya get it taken care of bud.
