Major issues with 4x4

Alright, so we put the leaf spring back in my truck today, after having it fixed, and wanted to take her out for a drive, to clear the cobwebs out of sitting for a week. Well we go to leave, put it in four wheel drive to get over the snow and ice in my driveway, and i pull the lever, and it `snaps` and the whole lever goes loose, and just lays there, doesn`t do anything. so put the truck in drive, and no dice either, just raises the rpm, dosen`t move. dad gets underneath to have a look, and it seems the bracket that the lever connects too is sheared right off and the transfer case is stuck in neutral. He manually put it in four wheel drive to get out of the driveway, and it stayed in 4x4 for about 20 feet, and then it pops back out, and again cant move the truck. If i try to put it in park, theres a loud grinding sound and have to put it in either neutral or drive. He takes both laces from his winter boots to try and rig it up to put it on the side of the road, but this time it doesn`t last at all, move like 2 feet, then pops again and wont move. so we got my neighbour to push it with his plow off the road, and back into the driveway. My question is, Is it just the lever thats broke, or has something else screwed up too. And does anyone know some part numbers for the manual shift lever and parts like that, so that i can get a look at online of what we are dealing with, and if we can fab somthing up stronger then before. Thanks for the help in advance guys.

I have no clue!

But on a side note my lil bro has had to have his (manual tranny) shifter welded back together like three times... breaks at the base.

Maybe your situation is somewhat similar?

the shift lever is what holds it in gear iff you fix the broken bracket you will be fine
