I have never seen a part like that on a ZJ.

Scale would help, as would a description of the problem you're having.

1996 ZJ Green Laredo V8, 2.5" OME and Bilsteins, 33's, Holes drilled in the roof.
1998 ZJ 5.9 - Junked
1984 F250, 460 BB, T19, work truck/future tow pig
1987 Mercedes 300D Turbo, the diesel daily, 30mpg in style

That looks like a lock nut that would go on the power steering pump to hold the hard line in place. But just a wild guess.

Could be this, what does the inside look like ? Smooth or threaded ? If smooth probably as Polka says, if threaded; maybe a reducer/ adapter of some sort ?

Never seen a fastener like that anywhere on a ZJ, least of all the steering. Definitely not factory, so don't bother going to a dealership, they won't know either. If it ever *was* on your ZJ, it will have been down to somebody trying to make a non-ZJ part fit.

The tube nuts on the power steering lines look completely different, so it's not them. You've given us no idea of scale, nor described your steering problem, so we can't really help you any further.

Looks galvanized to me. That plus the generally thin hex area, it looks like a galvanized steel pipe reducer bushing. That's plumbing parts not Jeep parts. Keep looking.

Looks just like this: http://www.lowes.com/pd_21868-29760-...anized+bushing
