With the toyota axle swap complete I managed to drive the Jeep down for an alignment last week. Caster came in at 2deg (R) and 2.2deg (L). It's what I expected as the toyota's came with between 1 and 2 deg from the factory. When I upgrade the front axle shafts I'll cut and turn the knuckles but for now I'm just going to correct it with shims so I can drive the thing.
So, I can get 4 deg shims that puts the caster in the mid range of spec or I can go with 6 deg shims to put it around 8 deg. I've read several people suggest to go with a higher caster angle when running 35's or larger. Just wondering what the consensus is on that.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.
