I have 3-4” of play on steering wheel very loose steering can notice going over bumps at slow speed or railroad passes where one wheel drops off it will pull steering wheel to that side vice versa with other wheel if it were to drop off first. Please check out the video below going over a bad parking lot at 5mph. You can see it goes side to side.

The Jeep is Lifted (mopar) and has 20x12 on 35” tires. Aftermarket adj LCA & stabilizer Shock added. Thanks for any help

By the video it looks like your trackbar and/or trackbar bushings and hardware are loose, worn out, etc. Looks like lateral shifting of the axle feeding into the steering linkage.
