Need part name / number

Hi everyone, first post here, use to post a lot on RAMJ+W.. anyways
I have had an issue my me 01 TJ starting.. and I have diagnosed it to a bad linkage between the key ignition cylinder and the ignition switch.
There is a little piece of what looks to be aluminum that broke off the connector between the key cylinder and then ignition switch.. so when it turns it doesn't have anything to actually turn the ignition switch.

Anyone know what this part is called? I can't find any references to it in the haynes book..

Thank you!

Column Parts Fiche

Here are the pages from my 2004 TH Parts Fiche. Do you see the part here. It's what the dealers use to determine the PN.

Now in a 04 TJ 4cyl 5spd CV @120K+
Both as a commuter vehicle in NW, NJ

Thank you very much!
I didn't see it which leads me to assume I need to buy a whole new steering column...

Thank you!

The part that broke is called a 'rack'. It is the geared rod that goes from the back of the key cylinder, which directly drives a gear, which pushes the rack down that moves the actual starter switch. If you have more money than time, you can replace the column. ( you will then have a different key for your ignition and doors) Or you can replace the parts, with the right tools it will probably take 2 to 3 hours.
