It's a small bracket on the drivers side door for I believe is the switch for the lights, etc. The bracket is cracked and I want to replace it, but I have no idea what it's called.

It is a "door check" and pretty sure its only function is to stop the door from opening too far and damaging hinges and sheet metal, as might happen if the wind grabs it.

Junk yard would be a great place to source these, I am sure there are a million of them out there and probably very inexpensive.

i would call it a ; door restraint arm. wonder if they sell that. you know it looks a lot like the one in a JK tail gate. Jk doors that is just a strap. If that one is hard to find maybe the part off a jk would fix that. just have to cut the rivet and new foot with a nut/bolt or get fancy make a rivet. might be able to weld it.....

Yep, thank you, that's exactly what it's called. And yeah, it's a riveted pin. buggers. I'd just weld it if the ex didn't steal my welder. lol. But thank you!

Would not be surprised if you could cobble something up from Home Depot

Found one on Rock Auto or E bay-cant remember but didn't last long-maybe 9 months before it broke again. Called a door check.
