Torque shaft bushing, urgent!

On my roadtrip right now and while running Alpine loop and Engineers Pass in Colorado ( so awesome!) the bushing came out. Just got off the trail and only called autozone so Far with no luck. What's my best option while I search around tonight, junkyard? Going to Moab in the morning, any help?

What about slide a small pvc tube over the shaft for temporary fix? That would fill up the space I'd think

Just clamp some vise grips on the shifter tab with the post through it through it or jus put the vise grips onto the shift lever on the transfercase and hop out and shift it manually

Good call on the vise grips, it's holding it. Parts store here has a variety pack of bushings I'm going to try aswell when they open up.

ok, I had a green bushing pop out and I put it back years ago and its still there. But I'm talking about the one that goes into the transmission.

Pretty sure this is what you need and good luck.

^ If its the bushing mentioned above you should be able to find them at any parts store. I got my last one from o-reillys it came in a package of other shift linkage bushings from the "help" section, part number ( dorman-help #14041)

Exactly the kit I got from the OReilly here in moab, and I found the stock green bushing
Torn up bad while I was under there. New part didn't fit smoothly but good enough. Thanks guys!
