Jeep pulling left

I don't believe there are too many adjustments for alignment just toe in or out. Is there a particular reason why my jeep would be pulling left? Something I should look at

Pulling left normal driving, accelerating, braking?? Details of your Jeep, lift etc?

Check your alignment along with the condition of your tires. I would also reduce that 3"BL down to 1.25".

Also check the front brakes. The front left one could be sticking and be constantly pulling the jeep left. Look and see if one brake pad is worn much more than the other.

Condition of my tires is good. If it was the brake it would probably be pulling considerably harder than what I have. I feel like this feels more like an alignment issue. Is it true that there is only a toe in or out adjustment on the alignment for the tj's? If so I could probably measure this out myself right?

Im going outside right now to check the brake pads

Jack up front end & spin each tire, shouldn't be any resistance from brakes. Yes, DIY toe-in is very simple, should be in one of the stickies at the top. You should be 1/16" - 1/8" toe in.
