Call me dumb or stupid

This is my third jeep I owned, first jeep had no mods to it at all.
Second jeep Rubicon had over sizes tires, body lift and looked great. But got stolen after 4 months I had it never to be found.
Third jeep Unlimited Wrangler (4) Door 4" Suspension lift 35"X12.5 tires on it, looks great as well.
Question here is, since other jeep got stolen how often or when do you know or get a aliment done? I got way to much money tied up in this jeep with tires etc and want to make them last. Also don't want to have the steering wheel start to shake and jurk from side to side while applying brakes.
Any help with this please,

Thank in advance
Wolvie

Watch your tires, they dictate alignment. Most importantly, rotate your tires frequently to promote even wear. You have a new rig so unless you break something I wouldn't worry about that as a maintenance issue, only if you are seeing tire cupping, uneven treadwear, etc... otherwise do it when you get a new set.

Do the alignment yourself. Plenty of threads on it. I've done it and it takes about 15 minutes.

Also, the suggestion of frequent tire rotation is a good one to promote even wear.

So you do the tire alignment yourself? Wow never even thought about doing that myself before? And your tires have been good and your Jeep doesn't pull to left or right?

All you can adjust on a solid axle Jeep is the toe in. Simple ,
