transfer case t-handle 08 GC


Is anyone familiar with the transfer case t-handle shifter? I just bought an 08 grand cherokee limited and would like to replace the t-handle. It has a "chrome" sticker covering it and is wrinkly and warped. Everything else in the vehicle is in great condition and I want to get this replaced. My father-in-law has an 07 overland and his handle looks to be plastic with painted chrome and is fine.

Anyone else notice this defect in the t-handle? Can't find anything in google for a replacement. About to go to a dealership but thought I'd check here first.


Here is a picture of it:

x3. Yeah, mine's been starting to peel off as well. Terrible quality if you ask me. Will definitely check out that P/N robpp provided.

Thanks for your replies! If that's the right part number, sure is expensive for a small piece of plastic. I might try and peel off the decal and spray paint it first with chrome paint or something. If it ends up looking crappy, I'll buy the part.

Thanks again!

The more I am researching, I believe that part to be the switch component underneath the console which controls it electrically. I can't find a picture of the handle itself anywhere.

Page 101 has the diagram, but I don't see it list the handle. Perhaps it is in another section connected to the transfer case diagram, but I was not able to find it.

Another good catalogue with TONS of switches, but I was unable to find the handle in here either. Maybe these will help someone else though.

In the mean time, I'll keep searching.

Sorry to bring up and old thread from 3 years ago; but did you get it switched? Do you have to take out almost the entire center console to get the t-handle out to replace it? Mine is broke and I need to replace it, but all the videos I find are for what looks to be an little older and I dont have as many screws holding the NAG1 trim pieces down
