TBH, almost every ZJ or WJ I've seen kills the outside edges of the front tires with a stock alignment unless you corner like a total wimp. Cranking the caster helps. On mine, with a 1/2* of extra negative camber up front and a crapton of caster, the front tire wear is dead even across the tread, even though I drive it like I stole it pretty often.

Hmm... I'd get the alignment checked on all 4 corners to make sure nothing is bent in the back.

Once I lifted my ZJ, which has a 242, I started getting huge edge wear. Something is giving me big positive camber, which is no fun.

The front suspension on these things is good for wheeling, but that's about it.

You lose some caster as you lift it, IIRC. You might be able to adjust some of that back in. Also, check your toe and shoot for closer to 0.
