Alignment help on 4" lifted WJ

I recently purchased new 32"A/T tires, 17x9 inch rims and a 4" rough country x series suspension lift for my wj. I don't know if I should buy a lifetime alignment from Firestone or not. How often should I get an alignment? Is it the lifetime worth it? If not what are the price ranges for a normal one and where should I get it? Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

How long to you plan on keeping it?
I do work for Firestone, but not at a tire dealership, so I get a pretty good discount.
Something I have noticed though.
I have two stores within 10 miles of me.
One store, everytime I take a vehicle in to have it aligned they say this or that needs to be replaced.
Second store, just does the alignment.
Ok so your first thought would be the first store just wants to get more work and money.
Here is the thing though, I have been going there for 25 years, they know me, they also know if something is wrong I will be replacing it and then bring it back for the alignment.
I think the tech at the first store is just more picky than the second store. He wants everything right.
It is a pain in the rear though.
My point though, if you plan on keeping the vehicle. Eventually your tie rod ends and ball joints are going to have to be replaced.
At which you will need a front end alignment.
Pay once or pay twice.
That is if you plan on keeping the vehicle for 10 years or more.

Thank you! I think I ended up just doing a one time alight meant for $60. The lifetime was $180 at Firestone so is rather just pay $60 3 times because I do not think I will be needing that many alignments any time soon
