Help at stealership now

Looking at a 2011 Rubi. Steering wheel only turns 1 1/4 turn to left but 1 3/4 turns to right. I noticed this because it would make a sharp right turn but couldn't turn around to the left on a football field. There is a fox steering dampener on the front, could it be the culprit? It is fully extended on the left turn. Not fully compressed on the sharper right turn.

An improperly installed steering damper can indeed limit steering travel in one direction.
Can you disconnect it and see if steering travel improves?

Yup sounds like the problem. Whoever installed it (SS) probably just eyeballed it instead of marking the center. Easy fix but have them do it if you buy (before) the Jeep.

That's exactly what it was. I convinced them to know another $150 off the price (price of new mopar stabilizer) then had the mechanic adjust it and works great and turn evenly now. Still got the additional $150 off.
