I had the same problem. Try to replace the steering fluid. If it doesn't help, you'll soon need to change the pump. I would reccomend to go for a new one, not a remanufactured. I installed a remanufactured one (MOPAR, sealed, bought from a dealer) and I have almost the same problems (however it improved the performance, but it is still not it what should be). When wheeling, if the pump gets hot (and it gets all the times), it starts loosing power and I end up with no assisted power, so I am planning to install a cooler, also (it will be much cheaper than buying a new pump).
