I'm in the process for hunting for my ignition switch, as well. I thought the same thing as the OP, but turns out that part is the headlamp delay module/switch. I'll be going back in and when I find it, I'll take a picture.

The picture from op is of turn sig switch as a rod comes down from the lever near steering wheel and pushes on that white piece seen on the right in 1st picture (at least thats how my 88 mj was)

I was able to locate my ignition switch today, but it got too dark to take a picture. The switch is on top of the steering column, and actually shares a bolt with the switch from the picture. Notice how the screw was 8mm, and the other was nut was 3/8"? That same stud is the other screw for the ignition switch, which is 8mm. I'll have a picture up tomorrow.

Here is a picture of both switches. I just re-installed them today.


Here is a picture of that studded screw I was talking about. The stud is 8mm, and the nut on it is 3/8"


And here is a picture of the switch in position. I admit, it's hard to get a good shot as there is little space up there, but this is from the centerline of the vehicle facing port (drivers) side.
