tjslaughter - what did the NJLR guys give you? The alignment specs or DIY how-to instructions? I checked the site but didn't see any threads on it. Wouldn't mind seeing a either as I will be needing it in a few weeks.

that method has limited value on a truck where the only adjustment available is front toe in. The You tube video is for a car where all four corners are adjustable.
The two screws and a tape measure method is more applicable to land rovers. I use drywall screws into the outer lugs and put the front of the truck on jackstands instead of rolling it back and forth but you get the idea.

My education on this I credit to Pendy the Rover Yota. He taught me this in my driveway years ago. On my truck @ the time with 3+ inches of lift he recommended a little toe out (1/16th) and the truck drove like a dream and tires wore very evenly.

Doug,

I will probably use a combination of both methods mentioned. I will update when done.
