I just had the same issue with my 92 mj. Mine ended up being a worn steering box. What you need to do is crawl under it while someone moves the steering wheel back and forth so uou can pinpoint where all the movement is (what is worn and sloppy).

The box has an adjustment screw on it, you can use it to remove the slack from the worm screw/drive gear in the box.
Assuming you do not have other issues like bad tie rod ends etc.
3-4' seems to much to be just a box though.
