Looks like you need seat covers and a lot of time and spray paint!!

I'm not sure why there's spacers but it's a really stable jeep with them. And it does not even have a front sway bar.

I was told the spacers shouldn't hurt anything, was this wrong? I know there talk about poorly

The spacers are probably there so your tires don't rub the control arms or any other components when turned and compressed. They look fine to me. I'm runnin spacers too on 33x10.5

i also found about a mm of silty metetal coating my magnet in my oil pan. Is that a bad sign? Also i found a few metal chunks at the bottom of the pan none of them were bigger than the tip of a needle though.

The gauge itself wasn't too bad but getting off the oil pan and and getting the bung welded in and putting it back together with a new seal was a messy possess.

I would give it like 2 stars for difficulty and 4 for messiness

My shop who I had give my car a onece over a while back said I have a bad front driver wheel bearing. So I took it out and its not horribly loose but the bearing itself has one to two mm of movement. Does this mean time to replace?

The reason I'm even bothering with this is because when I am at highway speed and I let off the gas my front end wanders side to side.
Things I've tried...
Tightened up all the front end
Alignment
Checked bushings

I would appreciate anyones help
I've been reading old forums to find things to help but just thought there's somthing I'm missing

I am not running a front sway bar either but this is a recent problem and I have never had a front sway bar

My only out of speck alignment is 6.0 caster

YES if it moves at all it needs replacing. just go to autozone and get a new one they are really easy to fix. if you dont fix it the tire can fall off while your driving! haha and then someone can sue you cause your 33 inch tire went through there car and hurt them haha.
