Front tire wear

Did a search, but found nothing specific. Anybody notice front tire wear more than rear? Have not had my Tj long enough to track the wear progress, but noticed more front wear than rear. The wear is even across tread, so I don't think there is a "toe in/ out" issue, just seems to eat up the fronts!

I'd still check the toe-in. That adjustment is crucial to the front tires not wearing at an accelerated pace. Also, what size tires are you running and what air pressure is in them?

How often are you rotating your tires?

Rotate at 3000mi with oil change, but have always done fr to rear. As I said, not long enough to start rotations as people have said in this forum! PO never rotated in the spare, still brand new (orig factory GY MTR) 245/75/16...Tread life is pretty much done, so new treads are coming soon, but would like to get things dialed in before. (tire pressures @ 32 ish).

That's what is happening to me. I rotated my tires last week and the fronts that i moved to the back has no tread on them and the rear that i moved to the front look brand new. Also had a loud noise coming from the tires in front now after rotation the noise is in the back.

Make sure you're doing a cross rotation in there. The tires should all eventually hit every corner of the Jeep in equal amounts for best wear. Cross the fronts to the opposite corners in the rear and bring the rears straight forward. Repeat every 3-6000 miles. 32 psi sounds about right. Not sure what else it could be other than follow what Jerry said and get a toe adjustment. But as with all vehicles the front tires always wear faster than the rears.
