There is no metal tab for the Transfer Case shifter, only the T4/5 and SR4 manual transmission shifter.

They can be found here: https://www.quadratec.com/products/52112_0200.htm

You are better off just drilling it and running a bolt through it. I would recommend drilling front to back and not side to side. Learned from experience and had to drill it twice.

Two thin nuts, two Allen head set screws.

Use the one existing hole in the shift base handle, drill another 90 degrees opposite.

Tac weld the nuts, use the set screws to tension.

Done

I knew suggestions like those were coming, they always do. But sometimes others simply like the way the factory has the clip and isolater setup that is just as easy and reliable. 50,000 miles at least from the constant shifting.

Oh, I recognize it's not the only option, but it is a viable option for which does work (very well)

When I figured it out originally, I had suffered thru a good 6+ months of terrible, sloppy shifting due to a terrible condition isolator clip. (My buddy said it was like trying to shift with a piece of empty garden hose)

I'd like to think I'm pretty Jeep speak adept, but had no idea an isolator clip existed, or that it was called an isolator clip. Tuff to search for what you don't know.
