Dodge truck and Jeep ignition switch actuator

A few weeks ago my ignition key turned just a little bit farther than usual when I started it. I knew when I had to press the key release button to shut the Jeep off there was a problem. I pulled the cover off the column and checked the key tumbler and it was OK. I remembered seeing this little part on DaveysJeeps wesite and i knew it went between the key tumbler ans switch itself. The dealer tell you they don't sell them AT ALL and its $700 for a rebuilt steering column. :roll:

Daveys has them for $65. I ordered one up and found out 3 days later NAPA now sells them,...for about $30.
I've also heard Dorman makes them so maybe regular parts store my have them as well. I'll chalk up the extra money to davey educating me about the part. oh well.
These little gems of a part is in Many other Chrysler cars of that vintage. If you have one and the ignition switch acts funny you may need a new one.

The one in this pic IS broken


Here is a good one


here is a install video:
