1. Check all fasteners for proper torque. Check to ensure there is adequate clearance between all rotating, mobile, fixed and heated members. Check steering for interference and proper working order. Test brake system.
2. Perform steering sweep. The distance between the tire sidewall and the brake hose must be checked closely. Cycle the steering from full turn to full turn to check for clearance. Failure to perform inspections may result in component failure.
3. The draglink must be adjusted to center the steering wheel BEFORE the vehicle is driven. Failure to do so will cause a computer error with the Jeeps traction control system and result in odd handling and poor performance.
4. Using an certified alignment professional with experience in aligning lifted vehicles, get an alignment done to factory specifications.
5. Readjust headlights to proper settings
It is the ultimate buyers responsibility to have all bolts/nuts checked for tightness after the first 500 miles and then every 1000 miles. Wheel alignment steering system, suspension and driveline systems must be inspected by a qualified professional mechanic at least every 3000 miles.
