Good luck in your decision
This doesn't match your post in the classifieds thread

Decided to go out and explore a bit. I took my puppy out to Antelope Island and after realizing you really can't see much of the island decided to go up to the Spiral Jetty. I didn't realize that Golden Spike was right there so I stopped in the visitor center for a minute since I was already there. Then, I had remembered seeing a sign for Locomotive Springs so I decided to head out and try and find that. Not realizing how far it was from Golden Spike and Corrine, and not having a real GPS (was just using my Nexus 4) I got pretty close but turned around when someone I flagged down said I had passed it already. I was bummed to see that when I got home I was on the right road, was going the right direction and was probably only a few miles from the springs. I basically drove halfway around the GSL today and had a really great time.

The last time I was out at Antelope Island I was in Scouts on an overnight camp and I had never been to the Golden Spike area. I loved how wide open it was up there and how pretty the valleys were between the peaks. I will definitely have to go back out and explore that area some more but have now added a GPS to my gadgets list.

Here is a pic of the JK and my puppy Charlie at the Spiral Getty. Not a great pic, I know, but its still a pic of me out and about.

I got the uber limited "Mary Poppins" edition JK. You didn't hear about that one? Lol.

I actually pulled the back seat almost as soon as I got it and bought some Trek Armor seat covers to keep the boogers and hair off the upholstery. I was happy to find that one of his Costco rectangle dog beds fits perfect in the back. He lays down and rests his chin on the arm rest. He fits perfect.

I've still got it but think I ought to hold on to it. I haven't any little humans running around yet but will when the wife finally finishes school.

Do you have a sleeve and gusset kit on your front axle? You could have bent your inner C's or your axle, but I would bet it is Ball Joints.

If they aren't adjusted correctly, it could certainly have an effect on a lot of things. If I had an alignment done, and they adjusted them, I would rule them out. If you don't trust the alignment you had done recently, I would have it done again by a shop or person you trust to do it right and let you know what issues they find with the front end.
