Steering wheel play

I recently picked up a 2000 TJ with 4inch suspension lift and 32in BFG A/Ts its been great but has little things wrong with it, on being there is alot of play in the steering wheel and im wondering if there is any way of adjusting or correcting this issue

check out or have checked out all your steering components for exsessive play or wear. pitman arm or tie rods may need to be replaced. one thing about running bigger tires is it wears stock or stock replacement components out faster. good luck.

like he said, get under there and shake stuff around....there shouldnt be any play.

few possible culprits:
tie rod end(s)
worn u joint(s)
worn steering shaft(firewall to steering gear box)
worn ball joint(s)
worn hub(s)
worn gear box
