Do It Yourself Alignment
This link is under the TJ FAQ sticky. Has anyone ever done this? How easy is it to mess up? IS it easy to mess up?

Im a newb with this stuff so I want to make sure im not making a mistake by attempting this...It seems easy enough but then again I have no idea what Im talking about...:D

well if you mess it up you'll know it right away. and then you can drive under 20 mph to your local auto shop and have them fix it in like less than 20 min.

i havent done it but it seems easy enough, just make sure you tighten everything to specs, or just good and tight!

if you can wrench on your rig at all its pretty easy! but what did you do to it to need to know? when i did mine i used the bead on the lip of the wheel to set it;)

Done with just a little care to make sure you're reading the tape measure accurately, that method is a very tried and true way to set your toe-in. That's even how most 4x4 shops set the toe-in after installing a lift. I've used that method for 7-8 years and my tires have always worn perfectly evenly, go for it. Having someone help by holding one end of the tape measure will help a lot. Just make sure you're measuring at the same location on the tires and that the tape measure is reasonably level. Straightening the steering wheel using that webpage's instructions couldn't be easier. :)
