    I have 4 tires that are less than a year old. The front tires still look fantastic, but the rear tires have gone almost completely bald. I'm off to get new tires, but what could be making them bald so fast, when they're so new?

No it doesn't, but something happened to your rear end. It must have too much weight in the trunk, or the bolts have come loose and let the rear end slip down, I know they can be brought back up, there are shims that slide in and out to get it aligned, but usually, they stay put because of the weight difference, I would take it to a different garage and have them look at it and make sure nobody messed with it. Then get it shimmed back up. A lot of cars come off the line like that, VW's, BMW's, How would like to pay $30,000 for a car with the rear wheels leaning in at the top? I wouldn't. Check it out, Hope this helps.

I suggest returning to the shop were the repairs were done. A quality shop should supply you with solutions to your concerns. No one is perfect, without customer feedback shops can't improve.

I have a 2000dodge Dakota quad cab 2whl DRV. 5.9ltr v-8 within last 9 months replaced fuel pump, filler cap, injectors, map sensor, tps, coil, plugs, wires, transmission filter, rear end fluid and cover,...

It's possible the fuel pressure regulator is not operating properly, or the fuel pump relay is an issue. Slim possibility the fuel pump
wiring you did is a little off. I don't see that you replaced the fuel filter or filters, could be blocking fuel flow to or from fuel pump.

Rear Tires: Balding

if it has independent rear suspension then have the suspension rubbers checked and replace if necessary. Next for all wheel alignments it is essential that the rear end is aligned first to stop this tyre wear before the front wheels are aligned . IF you have leaf springs at the rear check for axle alignment and broken centre bolts or worn rubbers at the centre bolt mounts.

You should make the front end repairs and then get new tires. An alignment won't help until you replace the bad parts.

What could be causeing my 1993 jeep grand cherokee 4wheel drive to be makeing my tires lean out and when the roads are wet its hard to keep it on the road it feels like I'm slideing all over the place...

It appears the you have a problem in either the connecting rod between the tyres . If that is bent then the tyres will be facing out and steering will be difficult. An indication of this will be excessive tyre wear on the inside of the tread. Best have a wheel alignment check done as you have a serious safety fault
