First Jeep

So I just bought my first jeep this weekend, have a good idea on what I want to do with it but it's going to be a long project. First I want to get all the basics done so I can drive it to work and make sure it's running solid. I do have one thing I need to fix but I'm having a hard time finding the part. The shifter arm is broke off and I can't find a replacement, I'd like to get a lil longer one then the factory one. I can't even find a factory one, any advice or anyone know where I can get one? It's got the ax5 trans. Thank you.

Welcome to the forum!

If you mean the shifter stalk or stem is broken off, this is the closest I could find and it's on ebay.

You might also try http://car-part.com/.

However, if there's enough of the stem left you could glue some cork to it and use a sawed off single shot shotgun as a shifter. That would be pretty cool!

Yeah it's the piece that your shifter knob screws onto. For some reason these things are super hard to find, I'd like a lil longer one but seems I'll have to get a factory one and put a extension on it.

You would have to improvise on how to clamp them to whatever you have or extend with, but I'm rather partial to the horns for mountain bike handle bars. To work with my setup it took two left hand horns, but it's real comfortable to use.

That's a piece of art haha



You can always weld a little metal to it to extend it....
