Loose Steering Wheel

I have a 2008 F350 with a loose steering wheel. The steering itself is fine, and the truck tracks straight. I have googled and checked on youtube and found this
but, the steering wheel in the video is different from the one I have once you take the plastic covering off. Have any of you guys ran into this issue? Does anyone have any tips on getting the steering wheel off? Thanks in advance.

Have a buddy giggle the wheel while truck is off in the cab while you look at the pitman arm. If the pitman arm doesnt move alot, if at all while he is doing it you have play in the shaft. If it does move then it is probably a shot bushing on the drag link

It's definitely the steering wheel. I have done lots of google searching and come up with nothing on how to tighten the steering wheel.
