the part is ordered! lets pray it fixes the issue! it has been very tempermental, starts when its been sitting a while, doesnt start when its been sitting for a short while or just a few hours. had to pop the clutch twice yesterday. luckily the 2nd line i backed up into my parents driveway thats a little hill and was able to pop it myself rolling down the damn thing. thanks again for the help and info! i bought the part from RockAuto!
Just fixed this on my 03, this video was very helpful:
4.0L, 5 Speed
RE 3.5" Lift
33x12.5 BFG A/T's
Very simple repair. For mine (and I assume other jeeps) I needed a tamper proof torx set (torx set with the hole in the middle)

Ok.....So I took apart the ignition configuration. My ignition switch actuator pin is NOT broken. I CANNOT start up the jeep with a screwdriver either so I think I am ruling out ignition problems up to that point? I"m not really sure where to go from here. My starter is good, battery is good, starter relays good, all fuses good, wire from battery to starter good, no reading on meter from the wire that goes from the colenoid/starter to the ignition, but the wire seems to be ok (no visual deficiencies). Does anyone have any ideas???? I neeeeeed my jeeeeeep.
Same problem, simple fix
I had the EXACT same problem with my '05 Wrangler X. Dealer said steering column needed to be replaced - about $1000. I visited this forum and thanks to everyone's input I ended up getting a new ignition actuator from RockAuto for about 30 bucks, plus maybe $10 for express shipment. Worked like a charm.
