Does anyone know about a backup switch for a 1989 jeep Wrangler

I have a 1989 Wrangler with a 4 cylinder, standard transmission. I have a switch that has broken that is on the side of the transmission, I thought it was the backup light switch but when I go to the parts store they show and list a same kind of switch with a wire attached to it. I already have that kind on the transmission. The switch I need has to threaded studes attached to it that the vehicle wiring harness puches onto. Can anyone help?

These are right out of the manual and it sounds like you are describing the reverse switch (#9) for the manual trans according to the manual.
