As LouC said fix it with super glue and order that one as a back up.

I shall superglue if the replacement isnt available/won't work... hope it works out either way...

so on the 96 4.0 for some reason they put an "extended" plastic piece on the end, allowing the use of around 1.5-2 inches less cable, thus, when it breaks, using the cable end I posted, it will be completely pulled tight without the throttle extended, meaning it is of no use! HAVE to replace it on this cable, so I went ahead and orded the "clip" style cable rather then the push button self adjusting... NOW... HOW do you install this cable and uninstall the old one without dropping the pan? I have read on a bunch of forums that you dont need to drop the pan... NOT driving the ZJ is KILLING ME... Help.

The kick down cable has nothing to do with anything in the oil pan, it's just a cable pulling a lever on the side of the transmission, just follow the cable and you'll find the other end. Three options;
1. Super glue the old piece back together.
2. Buy the new cable end and cut 1.5 to 2inches of sheathing off the cable allowing it to move more.
3. Buy the entire new cable and replace it.

If you MUST replace the entire cable and want the instructions I can scan them out of my Haynes book and post them here for you, but as I said before I recommend just super gluing and forgetting about it, you're worrying about a small thing too much.
