91 wrangler sahara steering problems

Hello. I just bought a 1991 wrangler sahara at auction. It has 31 inch tires on it and the steering is super sloppy. I put it on the lift and checked the front end. Everything seems tight and good so im thinking the gearbox needs replaced. The problem is I bought it at auction and don't know anything about it. I don't know if it's been lifted or not. It doesn't look much higher than stock even with the bigger tires on it. How much lift can the stock pitman arm take before I need a dropped one? I plan on putting 35 inch tires on it. But I want to fix the steering first. I've attached a couple pictures of it so someone might be able to tell me if it's been lifted. Am I correct in my assumption that the steering gearbox is bad? Or is there something else I should look at first? Thanks.

I should mention that it has a 4.0 in it. The 4wd seems to work. Anything else I should do to check it out while I have it on a lift?

Can you actually make large movements of the wheel in the driveway and get no movement of the tires, or do you mean that it drifts around when you're driving? Is that just a shackle lift?
