Jeremiah856 Not sure bout the lift cause I don't have a body lift (and never will :P) but I had the issue with it being sloppy as your describing it and I bought a beefer aftermarket from Morris 4x4 and threw that on. Cleared it up, my issue was in the u joints which apparently can't be bought sperate, at least that's what I was told multiple times. Getting the old one off is a pain because mine was seized up, but I hit it from underneath with my BFH and got it off, dunno if this helps but hope so

DirtyRob I can't see the bolt in the pic that holds the shaft on tight. This may be the issue. On the other hand, in the instructions on my 3" body lift, it suggested sliding the steering shaft apart to accomodate the new height

ayerightaye I had my shaft lengthened to acommodate my lift. looks like your shaft may be pulling a bit too much on the column. I cant be sure by the pic but the waher thing is part of your lower steering column bearing assembly and should not be floating. The whole assembly can be around $25 and fairly easy to change. It should stop the slop

pelzworld Not 100% sure what has all been done to the lift, but here is a picture (yeah that's my wife). The lift appears to be done correct from what people have told me. I see online that there are steering shafts available to compensate for lift situations as mine looks to be original. Just curious if this is what I need and the part that goes into the firewall will just slide back in?

DirtyRob I looks like there may be a bearing that has gone bad

Do you have any pictures of your entire Jeep? Maybe some of the suspension, the body lift? I seen in one of your post, you say it has a 3" body lift? When that kind of body lift is done things need to be extended to compensate for the lift.
