Default Play in the Steering Box help

Hey guys,
Just looking for some wisdom on some steering trouble I'm having.

98 Ram 2500 4x4 (auto)

Basically, driving it is like riding a bull ! I've made sure all the regular culprits were eliminated ( front end , alignment etc ) but I notice lots of "play" in the actual steering wheel. When I grab the steering arm from under hood and give it and twist it back and forth , I can easily turn my steering wheel 4 or 5 inches both ways without using much force at all ... (slapping it back and forth essentially). Can anyone tell me what the norm is and and if there's too much play in mine. Also, what's the difficulty level of changing it out.
I have a chance to buy a complete 99 2500 4x4 reg cab for parts and am wondering if the boxes ( providing thats what the problem is) would match up.
Thanks for the look.
