It could be your turn on switch (column)...the contact point for the running lights is tweeked/damaged but the headlight contact is good.
Had mine go out on my Ranger ....looks to be the same manufacturer...look identical.

Would it still be my switch if it shows the little light symbol on my dash when i turn it to position 1 for the running lights,? When i turn it to position 1 the light bulb symbol on the dash says that that the lights should be on, but they do not come on

One would think so...but there's a possibility that's activated by two other contacts.

To rule out your switch you need to take it out and do a resistance test on terminals 4 & 11...if your switch for (running/parking) lights is good it will test/fall between a range of 901 - 926 ohms when in ON position. Do you have a multi-meter? ...if not call your local auto parts and they probably have one behind the counter they could test your unit for free.

On the bottom steering cover there's a torx bit...take that off and can probably figure out the rest for accessing your multi-function switch (light switch) It's not hard..just get top and bottom steering column plastic covers off...unplug electrical connector to switch..unbolt two torx bits holding switch onto steering column.

Here's the chart below... (to make sure the meters good/accurate you could check your headlight ohms...being you know they're working...as you see by the chart you'll get 345-358 range on them)

If it tests bad: http://www.ebay.com/itm/99-04-JEEP-G...00c655&vxp=mtr
