I assume you bought it used. If you were in 4x4, maybe someone put a torque locker in the dif?

It does the same in 4x4 and 2wd
But it has 27 10 12 rear and 27 10 12 fronts would the tyre width on the front cause this. Pressures the same tyres are kenda executioners.. i will put my outty wheels on to test but still open to thoughts

Could be the tires.

Tie rods, ball joints & wheel bearings all good?

thats a wide tire up front and could cause a steering issue, would also make you more subseptable to hitting something. most of the bent steering components come from front tire impacts. theres 2 kinds of alignments, mechanical 'tie rods' and electrical through the power steering 'buds'. i would check those first. the steering stem could have a tweak there very thin and bend easily as do the steering pitman arm that attaches to the tie rods. slight bends on theses components cause the symptoms your saying you have. other things to check are ball joints and lower a arms. worn out front a arm bushings cause the front end to dart while excelerating and while at speed, oem ones don't last long maybe a 1000miles so if you got more milage on it than that there worth replacing with some garage product bushings that have a life tile guarantee.

10" wide fronts do grab more and is noticeable in steering but i wouldnt say to the point of fighting it. As mentioned possible it had a locker install, jack the front end and spin one tire and see which direction the other one spins. If swapping tires doesnt change anything and you dont see anything bent or tweeked have it plugged in to buds and make sure the dps is centered.
