^^ thanks for the link.
I went at lunch yesterday and bought a new cable for $35. I saved the link for when the new cable breaks.
Installing the new cable took about 20 minutes. There were no nuts or bolts holding it in place. The cable snapped onto the shifter and clipped into the bracket on the shifter. There's a gromet on the firewall that you push through to the engine bay. Then the cable clips onto the shifter bracket. The new cable has all new clips and a new gromet so if you break a stubborn clip or tear the old gromet, no worries. After the old cable is out, snap the new cable to the trans bracket, then route it up the firewall through the hole. Push the gromet through the hole, connect the new cable to the shifter bracket, and snap it to the shifter. Then line up and push the gromet back in place on the firewall. finally crawl under the Jeep and connect the cable to the transmission linkage. Check your shift points and make sure P=park D=drive etc. If not, adjust the cable by moving the bracket on the transmission end.
