Loose stearing

Common problems on these Jeeps is the track bar is bad and I've seen the three bolts that hold the steering box to the frame come loose. You can also adjust the play in the steering box, but you should only let someone that knows how to adjust a steering box do it. You didn't mention what was done to improve slightly. But you need to have the tie-rods checked and the idler arm and pitman arm. All of these components will cause "loose" steering. And whenever you replace a steering component you have to have an alignment performed or you will wear out tires like there's no tomarrow. Hope this helps.

Check the serpentine/driving belt. It looks like it is loose or broken.
Water pump and stearing pump usually drive by the same belt. So overheating and stearing problems might have the same cause.
Hope that helps
good luck
