Steering wheel off center, how do i fix??

Ok so i think my steering wheel is off center, not my alignment. I have to have it almost a quarter turn to the left to go straight, but if i let go of it when im going straight it doesnt pull so i'm thinking its just the steering wheel thats off centered. Does anyone have a write up on how to fix it? Or can anyone just tell me how to do it? Any help is appreciated.

If you look at the drag link, you can see the collar there with two little bolts sticking out of it.
Loosen it up and turn it to adjust it. That's how to straighten your steering wheel

unlock the steering wheel first. have some one watch the wheel so you know which way to turn the drag link. stop just before it looks straight. always seems to work that way.

I always just pulled the steering wheel myself with a puller and put it on straight if my stering wheel was off center.. but that was on a car not a Jeep.
