I sent it in as a request on the site feedback link. Seemed like the right way to go about it.

Cant believe no one has had a shop make a brass bushing on a lathe and use an E-clip to hold it all together... I if I was not living in the middle of the desert...

I believe I heard it's designed to break before the T-case does. Forcing the leveler can really grind your gears.

It'd be better if it was designed to "break" and have a manual reset (like a fuse switch) to lock it back into place to try again (say after an engine restart), that's really what someone needs to design, so the T-case getting FUBARed isn't a liability.

I agree, but some aftermarket company should be selling these bushings for $25 (at a huge profit) to enthusiast who know they cant put all their force on the lever to get it in gear/know how to properly engage the transfer case.

I read about this in all the other threads. Could someone post a picture of where this piece is and possibly some instructions for a field repair? Greatly appreciated

Thanks jk'n. I'll be picking up a few spares at the dealer tomorrow.

I may need to get the J8 kit to have more room for all the spare parts I need to carry.

I looked at it and the plan is to get a couple replacement bushings and then go ahead and try and modify it to put a washer and cotter pin on the end... We will see...

Smittybuilt C.Res. It's OK, but Safari Straps will replace it after a while.

Thanks man, I've been looking hard for a cargo net like that because my dog gets in and out through the back and all the other cargo nets a PITA to open and close and get him in and out. Is it as easy to open the swing gate and unzip the back as it looks in the pictures?

It connects the same as the soft top back window. It attaches to the tail gate bar so you unzip, pull the bar and flip it up.

I posted this on a another thread, but here ya go on what I found with the C.res:

Pro's
1) Zipper to access cargo from the back
2) Wraps around the roll cage which leaves more room in the back

Cons
1) Need to leave the door surrounds on as it tucks into them like the soft-top windows
2) Made of soft-top material NOT cargo netting
3) looks OK, but sits funny on the roll bars so it seems kind of crooked
4) straps securing it to the sound bar are kind of cheesy and don't cinch down real well
5) sides attach to the "tub channel" like the soft-top windows do so that the use of a soft-top is almost un-doable
6) Due to #5 - can't bring the soft top with you in case of pop-up showers. Solved by a bikini top or something like, but I don't have one, only the dirty dog shade.

Just wanted to jump in here and add my thanks for getting this worked out. Found myself temporarily stranded on the trail this past weekend, but thanks to some friends we got it back into 2wd and I got home. Dealership replaced the piece today and I picked up two more for 20 cents each before I left.

Towed a pontoon boat out of the water this past weekend using the 4L to be careful. As I had done in the past I was gingerly trying to roll it and shift the TC to 2H and sure as could be, the handle popped loose in my hand. After a few minutes I was able to push it indoors (since my doors and windows were out and I was fr from home). Then I checked this forum for ideas. Went back the next day and still couldn't find the problem from underneath, perhaps I should have pulled off the skidplate? Nonetheless, was able to get a flatbed to tow it to the dealer - with the extended warranty and 39k miles on my 2009 Sahara Unlimited, I'm hoping I'll get the 'good news' call that it's covered under warranty. Going to ask the boys there to show me how to acces and throw some extra pieces and perhaps an 18mm socket in the GB for the next time.

Stay tuned,
FatJack, NJ

I did it the redneck way. Is solid since!

I used a gutter nail "cover" (the aluminum tube around the nail)


Then I placed it on the lever :


And finally added a cotter pin wrapped around the lever.



I used the lever quite extensively (2H, 4H, and 4L) and it did not fail me yet. I try to be gentle with it though

For the carter pin did you drill a hole through the pin? Seems logical to do that or else the pin could slip out of the groove. I like the fix. It seems simple. That is what most of us look for in situations like this one. I still don't understand the whole plastic weak bushing thing. I've heard that in an accident, it is designed to break away and not be accidentally shifted into a different mode. Seems plausible.

No I did not drill a hole through it since I was not able to unscrew the bolt holding the arm (I think it is red-locktited by the factory) because I did not have the leverage needed for it, and I did not wanted to break it and open a brand new can of worms...

So, I wrapped the cotter pin around it. There's a little groove all around the shaft, so by opening the cotter pin and wrapping it around, it is pretty sturdy. Other people did that and reported it works and stays there, this is why I did it too.

Hope this helps!

Not an automotive engineer, but i believe the plastic bushing does 2 things: by design it snaps onto the lever thus holding the cable onto the lever and protects the plastic head on the end of the cable from internal wear. The wear takes place on the bushing and not the cable itself.

Have you thought of using a "Jesus" clip? (an E clip).

Yes, I had one, but it fell on the ground and I was not able to retrieve it, so I used the next best thing. But, It would work very well with an E clip also in my opinion. It's just that even with the skid plate removed, access is not that good, so it's difficult to put in place.

Little disappointed with the World Jeep dealer in Shrewsbury, NJ. While they did fix it for me and quickly, they nailed me for $95 out the door. He admitted it was a $2 part but told me they had to take the center console out to get to the broken clip. So $87 in labor and they failed to put the console back together, though I was able to finish it myself. Ironically they just called to follow-up as I am writing this post.

Can anyone explain to me (send pix!?) how to access the part from underneath so I can fix this 'on the fly' should it happen again? Have no problem carrying a socket set if I have to drop the skid plate.

Thanks everyone for all your posts,
