http://www.jk-forum.com/showthread.php?t=85588&page=7 post #68. What do you guys think of this fix? This guy is sending me all the parts to do this, he has already fabricated all necessary hardware. I PMd and asked if he'd be willing to sell me a "kit", and he responded he just so happened to have an extra set lying around and put it in the mail to me today. I checked with Northstar Dodge and they are more than happy to take a look at the possible fix and install it while it's in sick bay.

Check it out when you get a minute, and let me know what you think.

Thanks! Did not realize the "banned" ones would be unable to open link. Let me see what I can figure out to get that info as you suggested.

Thanks for not "burning me a new one" for using links from that other forum, it's the only way I knew how to get it out there.

Someone who goes by "riknapora" from San Diego posted the following:

Quote :
Hey foks! I too broke down when my JK was barely broken in...in Alpine, at the top of the hill by the Ranger Station outlook. I had to ease it all the way down the hill in 4 because I had no clue what happened, and I wanted to get it in the parking lot to crawl under. So much for "free towing"...they only tow within 10 miles of a stealership. I got it in gear, drove home, and had to let my JK have a "sleepover" at the dealership where they replaced the entire cable (instead of the 30 cent bushing...no wonder Chrysler is broke). I was trying to sort through ways to keep the same thing from happening again, because of course Chrysler has yet to build a better cable/bushing/something, so I read through a lot of forums and spent lots of time online in general. I even contemplated taking off the t-case bracket to drill it, but when I crawled under my JK to remove the lever I realized that not only did Chrysler in their infinite wisdom decide to use a "torx-plus" bolt on the lever they also located it so close to the front yoke that the only way to remove said lever is to remove not only the front driveshaft but also the yoke...and didn't feel like tearing anything apart or disturbing a front seal that doesn't leak (yet). Instead, I bought a lever from the dealership and studied it. I finally came up with a cheap, easy, and effective fix that just about anyone should be able to do with some basic hand tools and some patience. I attached the pictures for your review...

Quite common, it's even been happening on test drives when the salesmen demonstrate the wonderful ability you will have with the 4wd, and then it FAILS on the lots. According to other forums, it is quite common and becoming more and more common. Others are keeping what are called extra "e-clips" in the glove box for future failures. The e-clip is the .33 I make reference to. It's all in the transfer case, so I would think it would include both sticks and autos. You know more about that kinda stuff than I do.

It looks like a snap ring might be better than a E clip. A E clip is easier to install but a snap ring will go around the whole shaft.

the reason it was oringaly made that way was so u wouldn't break the shaft if you pulled on the handle too hard

this is really only an issue when shifting out of 4Lo. you have to have at least a little "roll forward" in order to shift out of 4Lo easily.
