I have a 22 Wagoneer series III with air ride. I use to have a repair shop and did alot of vibration issues. I am having the same issue with vibration as others.....however I had the alignment checked at 2500 miles and was shocked with the spec's when I picked it up. Thought either Jeep made a mistake or the air ride adjustments at different speed would adjust the toe in condition. With the adjustment that was just made to a positive .20 on each side I feel unless there is something I don't know, it will definitely wear tires and create a vibration at highway speeds. I have contacted Wagoneer engineers to see if this spec is right?

There is a setting on the Uconnect screen to allow the tech to perform an alignment. If that setting wasn't activated during the alignment, it is possible that the specs are off.

There is even a setting to safely jack up the car

Thanks, I am aware of that, however the alignment specs are ridiculous .....This is not a performance handling vehicle. With the recommended specs, I lost 5 mpg on the exact 300 mile trip. The big shocker was when we got out of the vehicle for a stop after 120 miles, you could literally smell rubber. I cannot believe these specs are best for the vehicle. I used to have a tire and alignment shop and am aware of aggressive alignment specs, for handling but along with that comes extreme tire wear and stress on all other steering and suspension components.

Kate, I appreciate your response, however nobody at Wagoneer Customer Care can explain or confirm that the posted specs are correct. I use to have a tire and alignment shop and am aware of aggressive specs for handling and performance. This vehicle handled and road very well when we first got it. However after 2300 miles you could see outside feathering on the front tires. I wanted to get it properly aligned before the tire wear became a problem. I took it in and when I picked it up I saw the sheet with the alignment readings and was floored. Since that date we have driven the Wagoneer on the exact same 300 mile trip and lost 5 mpg, and when we got out of the vehicle after approximately 120-130 miles you could literally smell rubber. Now we are only at 2800 miles and are waiting for some alignment answers. Can someone contact me and assist with a proper alignment?
