If your wheel was straight, and now its off a bit, your alignmnet is mesed up wheather it pulls or not. Have it checked out.

I heard a horrible sound going into a driveway pretty fast. Couldn't replicate it, almost sounded like metal fan blades hitting something, or a sheet of metal smashing flat onto more metal. Wasn't prepared for it and was pretty pissed off at the time, hence the fast driveway.

I've been getting a small rotational sound when braking for the last week or so sounding like its coming from dead center below the engine but have wrote it off as me being paranoid. (Have to have the windows up and music off to hear it.) Wonder if it's related. I'm due for an oil change, could go to the dealer and use a $25 oil change and front end inspection email I got. (I don't know how they take it when they diagnose and you say "oh thanks I'll fix that" and leave.)

Sounds like you got lucky it only bent slightly. Normally they will bend a lot more. That is one of the spare parts I make sure I have in the Jeep when I off road! If it bends too much, you won't be driving it anywhere!

Lol, last winter, my brother drove the jeep 30 mph into a curb to avoid a sliding car and it messed up the front end pretty good. I wonder how bad that was messed up? Because he broke the wheel, and bent nameless parts under there.

Last night I got my Jeep pretty muddy on some trails, and stumbled across a JK stuck in some mud and had to pull him out, told him its probably a bad idea to go Mudding with bald tires

Finally got around to my Tinted Taillights. Now I have to wait for the rain to clear up so I can apply them.

My starter went, leaving me stranded in a parking lot. Got it manually started from beneath, drove it to the stealership, then told the mechanic NOT to turn it off....which he did. Now he knows whats wrong with it. lol
