I don't think TREs are supposed to look like that.

It's really hard to do an at-home alignment if your power goes out and you can't see your tires.

But I'm also off Thursday-Monday next week because of the holiday.

When I try to start the Jeep recently (past week or so), it doesn't seem to want to start. Cranks but makes a horrible noise, usually starts fine the second time I crank it.

To me it sounds like somethings slipping and not the actual starter.

CPS
Timing Chain
Starter

Which is most likely?
