    My caster (measured on the kingpin cap) was essentially zero before the shims. Consensus on this forum seems to be a target of 5-6 degrees. In your case, 4 degree shims are probably the way to go.

    A couple of random things.

    The jeep currently has a return styl fuel pump on it, but it is a non-return tank. The return port is simply capped on the pump. I ordered a non-return pump so I could get rid of the cap, didn't have time to swap it out and threw it in the spares kit for the Colorado trip. When the pump on the Jeep failed, I was proud of myseld to have a spare, but when we went to swap it on, the fittings are completely different. The non-return pump had 1/8" pipe thread fittings. The return style has 1/4" flair fittings. I did not have enough fittings to make my spare pump work, but luckily FinoCJ had a spare pump and we were up and running.

    I *finally* got around to getting the needed fittings for the non-return pump to make it a viable spare and threw it back in the spares kit:

    I was looking at the frame on the Jeep tonight and noticed both from frame rail are cracked in front of the front spring hanger. Both end short of the bumper, so I'm going to stop drill them, V-notch them from the top and weld them up when I get a chance. I'll probably weld up the lovely torched holes in the frame rail while I'm at it.

    It will be a while 'til I get to it though. Have to weld up the moweer deck and finish the last room in the house first.
