hey guys i have a steering problem, problem is it has a little play, i checked it out and it appears that there is play in the steering box. i just bought my jeep like 6 months ago and it has a lift kit and all the good stuff. now.. how fast do these stock gear boxes go? and how do i know if my tie rods are bad?

Every lifted Jeep I have seen has some play in the steering, it is probably due to the Jeep being lifted and bigger/heavier tires being installed, you have to keep in mind that it is a Jeep and not some fancy sports car...:D

Short of buying an upgraded steering box, and all new steering components, I don't see how you could, but maybe someone else on here has done it..sorry

How much "play" are we talking about? Can you give us a better description?

We are definatly gonna need a better description. The tie rods should have no play besides being able to be rotated.
You can always upgrade to a Durango steering box, but make sure that nothing else is broken first.
