    4WD shifter bushing falling off help

    About a year ago my bushing broke after 100k miles so I went to buy a new one at the Jeep dealership so I can get a mopar part but ever since I got this one whenever I shift down to 4 low or even neutral when I try to shift it back to 2WD it pops out of place and I have to go push it back in to continue driving does anyone know a better bushing I can use cause this makes it very hard and annoying to off road

    For clarification
    a 2010 JK?
    Differential Bushing or shift boot?

    If this is the one at the ends of the cable you probably don't have it completely seated. I had to replace them on my 2010 jk, it can be difficult to fully seat them but once on they don't come off until they break again.

    What tool did you use to do it?

    The bushing is also fully snapped onto the pin on the actual shifter but the rubber arm is what is popping off. The bushing never fully pops off the cable arm is what comes off

    I just pressed it in with my fingers. The one under the jeep was more difficult - mainly because of the awkward position and working more by feel than sight.

    Yes, that's it. Just takes a little force to press it on with your fingers.

    Mine was the bushings on each end of the 4 wheel drive cable [transfer case to shift lever] on my 2010 jk.
