I got mine from the clearance table at Autozone sometime last year. Generally they come with an AC test kit, but those are pricey.

I don't keep mine in the Heep - it's not an emergency tool, IMO

Toe wouldn't affect pulling to one side much. Toe usually causes wandering back and forth and odd wear on the inner and outer tread edge areas.
A steady pull to one side sounds more like a control arm or track bar adjustment is needed. Might be time for a 4 wheel alignment.

Can't do a 4wheel alignment on a WJ.

I sprayed PB plaster all over the bolts holding in the stock shocks. No budge...yet but tomorrow I will hopefully have all day so maybe the BB and shocks will finally go on.

Yeah, but it'll be missing next time I need it if I don't keep it in my Jeep.

Sounds like you need some lessons in tool storage and organization

You can use a blacklight too..same thing. It doesn't have to come from an auto parts store.

Yesterday I got the Jeep aligned, then last night at about 10pm I was lying on my back in the street bolting up the front skid plate - the plastic thing it replaces is just for looks I think. I also installed the bug guard. Today I installed the rear window thing that's supposed to keep the window a little clearer. Now, with the exception of the open diffs, it's actually better than my first '99, which had the up-country and quadradrive, whereas this one now has a 3" IRO lift and t-case skid. I'll pull my gas tank skid off and get an aluminum one made up that'll actually protect the tank. Next step: install the tow hooks and rock sliders.

I washed it and gassed it up. UPS went past my house into town...usually we're the last stop when they come back out, so there is still some hope for getting my lift today. Otherwise it's not going to get done for weeks now.

I don't know now. UPS went by and didn't drop off any packages. Now i'm pretty pissed. I figured 3 weeks was enough time to have my stuff delivered. Apparently not.
