Upper steering column

Have 2000 Wrangler TJ, MT, 4.0, lately it has not wanted to start or stop running. Mechanic says that I need a new Upper Steering Column, which by the way Jeep/Chrysler is not making and is on back order throughout the country. Mechanic also said that is what I am needing are actually plastic parts that fit together for the ignition (he calls it the transmission pieces?). Anyone out there hear of this or have a solution, besides taking the jeep out to the field and shooting it? Thanks for any insight.

Just got off the phone with the mechanic. Said that the piece in the steering column is connected to the ignition cyclinder and acts as the middle piece (again he called it the "transmission") to the ignition switch. Anyone have any idea as to where I can find this part and what name it is under? He said that the only way to get a new one is to buy the whole steering column.
