Re: steering \"slack\"
Of COURSE it's normal. It's a Jeep - they all do it.
But it's not right. And 3/4 turn is WAY to much. It would help if you'd fill in your profile so we know what you have. But, in general, find what's loose and fix it. Have a buddy rock the wheel back and forth to the limits of its free movement, and you go through the entire steering system a piece at a time and identify every joint that's moving more on the steering wheel side than the road wheel side. And then fix them. You probably have a bunch of problem spots.
