How do you know the play is in the steering box? before messing with the steering box, check tie rods, tie rod ends, idler arm, steering link, ball joints, wheel bearings, tires- these are all wearable parts and are usually responsible for loose steering- even though your box is old, they wear VERY slowly- it's a 4x4- did you modify the suspension or is it stock? Also understand that an American truck is NOT gonna have tight steering like a sportscar
