Steering resistance after wheeling

So the XJ's stock for now and I've been roughing it up on the trails around here, and when I get back on the road I'll get some noise and resistance when turning. It's a similar feeling as when you turn with the 4hi on the road. Normally it'll work itself out in a few days time. Am I getting some driveline binding? Thanks

I'd say its probably mud around the steering components and such. Always flush out the joints with a grease gun after wheeling to push out all the water/mud. It could actually be something else tho, whats the condition of your balljoints, u joints, and wheel bearings?

Either your Transfer Case is not fully disengaging or your axle shaft u-joints are binding and probably need to be replaced. In 2wd there should be no drive line binding.
