'08 RUBICON

As I'm sure, the whole country has heard about a little snow storm that just hit the east coast... 20" on the ground, lucked out there!
BUT- I jumped in my Rubicon to move it, ( not bothering to shovel behind it knowing I have factory lockers) , grab my 4wd shifter and it went all the way to LOW range... Then I remembered the plastic bushing that holds the linkage to the shifter fell apart when I changed the parking brake a few months ago. Of course I forgot to get a new one!

Big question I have is does anyone have a GOOD fix for this besides a plastic bushing? Memory tells me the shaft is not long enough to drill for a cotter pin ( which is HOW it should have been done at the factory).

Thanks guys, I really want to hear of any & all fixes you might have.

Hmm . . . 10 seconds to search JKO:

That should get you started. There's dozens more if you SEARCH.

Also, why dafook didn't you make your thread title descriptive?


All JKs use the same Tcase linkage clips (including an '08 RUBICON), but not all JKs have a
"Broken Transfer Case Linkage Clip" <-- That would've been a good thread title.

Not cheap but I installed the Advance Adapters JK cable shifter upgrade. That thing will never break.
