I think my tires are cambered a little bit. I just got an alignment done, and the angle isn't bad enough to cause tire wear problems.

Really? Looks bad enough to me. Its pretty noticeable considering thats the first thing that caught my eye. It may not seem like its causing tire wear now (and it probably isn't causing bad tire wear), but you will notice it in 6 months. Trust me, my camber is off a bit the other direction due to my leveling kit, and not being able to get an alignment yet due to bad upper and lower ball joints. Its at about the same angle you're at (maybe even less), and I am seeing some wear on the outside of the tire tread after only having the tires for 6 months. Like I said, it isn't bad but it isn't good.

When it rains out here in the desert, most of you guys are hell bent on getting everything dirty.

For me, the ranger doesn't leave the garage until the sky is crystal clear. HAHA! I'll come out there and play in the mud with you, but the ranger is staying home until the weather clears.

Sweet truck BTW.

we did last summer, the biggest problem was that we are all so spread out and we don't really have a central place to meet. (2) suspension discrimination, we either have bagged and BD guys or 4x4 dirt and mud guys.
