Bone head move on my part as I wasn't paying attention when unhooking the accelerator cable at the throttlebody. I pried out instead of up and broke the tab that the cable hooks to. Is this new tb time or does Dorman or some other company have a fix? Also if it's looking like new tb time is there a upgrade tb for improved power ? Thank in advance guy, and gals.

Which 4.0L engine, OHV or SOHC? If you provide good pics, someone might know of a way to fabricate a solution, or have already done so.

Pick n pull would be ideal. Those TBs are a dime a dozen

Yeah thanks as I'm heading there in the morning. I thought that maybe Dorman or another company may make something to repair it.
