Nothing wrong with the aluminum one. Have a jeep in the family that has been running the same one for 4 or 5 years. I wouldn't worry about it as long as you still have good plastic slides on yours.
The real trick is to leave the one e-ring off so that you can pull it a little further engaged.

I put in the Posi-Lok cable system and reused the stock aluminum one shift fork. Haven't heard any stories of failure on this board. The makers of the Posi-Lok push the cast iron shift fork and I looked at it....briefly. Mine works fine as is.

What/where is the e-ring? I plan on doing a posi lock soon.

There are 3 e-rings in the Posi-Lok setup. One is a stop and 2 sandwich the shift fork into place.
