My truck seems to want to wander a bit. How do I test to see if the tie rod ends are bad, or could it be a worn out steering box? Any advice would be appreciated!

Crawl underneath the front of the truck, grab the tie rods ends with both hands (one end at a time). Then with all your might pull and push multiple times to see if there is any movement. Pull and push inline with the bolt.

You may also want to check ball joints too. Lift each front tire off ground, put pry bar under tire and lift up to unload weight and push and pull on tire to check for movement. Just my $.02.
