So I've done a ton of searches and have not found where anyone mentions what the acceptable amount of "free turn" is expected on a TJ steering wheel. I have determined that my "play" is in the steering box and I have roughly 1" of free turn in the steering wheel before the tires start to move with the motor running and off. Is this normal or too much? I've tried tightening down the adjuster on the top of the steering box and it does not seem to make a difference.
For reference I bought the Jeep used with 42k miles and it has 35" tires on it.
