2005 Wrangler shift cable linkage

The automatic transmission shift cable linkage is broken (on 4.0L engine). There is a ring at the transmission end of the cable and what appears to be a broken nylon bushing on the gear shift bracket on the transmission.

Does anyone know the parts that need to be replaced?

Thank you.

Turns out the nylon bushing at the end of the shift cable broke. The entire shift cable had to be replaced because the bushing is not sold separately. Apparently, it is pressed into the cable. Pretty easy job, except snapping the bushing onto the pin was tight. I eventually had to use channel locks.
