Have you tried a dealership? When I needed one for my t-case shift cable, they had them in stock for a couple bucks.

I went to the dealership for mine and they were 16 bucks a piece. Found them on eBay for 4-6 a piece. Went ahead and ordered a few extra

If you ever have to change the top - go bronze. Leave the bottom (easy to change) plastic so the top wont ever break (unless the cable gets damaged).

No offense but I really wouldn't recommend this. They're made plastic for a reason; that reason being so they break before you really damage the transfer case from improper shifting. Bride wouldn't break, therefore your break would result elsewhere.

No offense but you didn't read.

You're saying the leaving the plastic one at the bottom where the cable connects to the transfer break the transfer case? How did bronze at the top make that plastic piece suddenly so much stronger?

And the reason they are made of plastic is many fold. Assembly line time, weight and cost. I seriously doubt an engineered failure point is high on the list.

If transfer case damage was the concern it would be shifted through canbus flawlessly eliminating the clip, cable AND lever.
