Pulled the console, found the problem
Trimmed the factory replacement bushing first
Then found this little jewel in the bottom of a bucket. Had to drill it out to 5/16 ID and them used a Dremmel to enlarge the ID of the plastic bushing rather than reduce the OD of the brass.
Used a 3/16" E-clip to keep it locked in place.
It looked like the plastic linkage might slip over the E-clip so I used a washer.
Hope this helps someone else. One of these days I'll do the t-case side.
Side note: why is there untreated metal ANYwhere on a Jeep, notice the rust under the console.
