Re: Broken 4x4 Shifter
I broke the bracket on my truck about two months because it had seized to the mounting bolt on the transfer case. The shifter part is made of aluminum. So once you get it off take it to a welding shop and have them weld it. I had to give the steel mounting bolt a few love taps to get it out of the bracket. Once I got the bolt and plastic sleeve out I used a round file to slightly increase the size of the hole. After I got it welded I coated both sides of the plastic sleeve with grease. Seems to work fine. Just make sure you have everything cleaned up and the bracket clamped together before taking it to the welding shop. I used a couple pair of vise grips and a small piece of flat steel to hold it straight for welding. Good luck.
