Auto Transmission shift lever bushing

The shift lever on my 2006 TJ X Auto 4.0 went loose this evening. I found treads about the bushing at the transmission, but the cable was disconnected at the shift lever on mine. The bushing was cracked and no longer securing the cable. I cannot find a part number for that bushing - does anyone know if it is the same bushing as the cable connection under the jeep? Does anyone have repair suggestions? I made a temporary bushing with some rubber tubing, metal washer, and a zip tie, but it won't hold for too long.
Thanks

Auto Transmission shift lever bushing

I recently had to replace the bushing, and had to go to the dealer, but they had it in stock - seems like it would be a part that would break often and therefore be in stock at most dealerships. I think it was 6 or 7 bucks. The bushing just snaps easily on the shift lever, and then the trans cable snaps onto the bushing.

fixed shift lever bushing

Thanks to all. Bushing ordered for about $3.00.
I found it easier to slip the bushing into the cable termination, and then squeeze it onto the post on the shift lever with some channel locks.
