wow a couple of rusty quick disconnects.. Grill.. best I can tell you is there are several jeep places in and around TN.. I want to say on the outskirts of Johnson City, been there just can't recall the names.. also.. the junk yard.. thou might be tight.. cause typically the most common parts are stripped early.. but you might have better luck if you hire out one of those that frequent the yard..
One thing those wheels have an extreme offset.. sticking way out beyond the point of no return.

You should take a look at how straight (or bent) the tierod is & look at the lower control arm mounts.

Congrats on the new jeep! I love these rebuild builds.

Edit: you need to turbo it, eventually

Your camber is off (negative). Have you had it aligned since you've done all of this work?

Toe and camber are two different things. If you are sitting in the drivers seat then the following is true:

Toe in is the front of the tires are pointed towards the middle of the vehicle. Camber is the top of the tires are leaned in towards the center of the vehicle.

Getting a professional alignment is ALMOST always required after you do suspension work. It is recommended that you ALWAYS do it.
