Suzuki part number is 37620-80000. You can still get it from Suzuki.
I buy a lot from these guys:
1987 Suzuki Samurai Parts - Suzuki Parts | OEM Suzuki Parts | Genuine Suzuki Parts

You might also try EBay. I have repaired them. The wires break off down inside the sealant. Dig it out, solder on a new wire and epoxy it closed again. Saves you about $35. There may be a difference in switches from the later model TCs. I've run across switches with metal, as well as plastic activation parts. Not sure which is which.

Dang $31.00 for that switch. It is not real important for me but I just like to have all my instruments light lit up when needed. I am going to hunt for one from junk yard.

I would try Mikodaindustries.llc for one. He has loads of salvage OEM as well as availability of new.

I have done a lot of business with Mike and highly recommend him.

I have the same problem with my light not working. Can someone point me to the location if the switch. I assume it's somewhere on the transfer case. Is the problem usually a bad switch or are there other areas to look when tracing the problem?

Follow the 4wd gear shift stem all the way to bottom. In front of that stem, you should see wires connection to screw on switch. Your wires may have broke off or you got a bad switch.

I found this website so you know what it looks like. See item#23&24. So far this is the cheapest price I could find.

I am seeing this part number 37620-80000 showing on the net that it is for reverse light switch. Is this switch looks like the 4WD switch too?

Yup, I've run across this supplier before. They have -0- available. They're also in the UAE. Not sure how they handle shipping and customs.
As "caseyjones955" said, give Mike a try. He's rounded up all kinds of parts for me, too. Great to work with and very reasonable prices.
