Out of alignment.

I have less than 3k miles and no serious off-road yet and my front end is already out of alignment.

I haven't had time to investigate yet as I just noticed this morning on the way into work, but it pulls hard to the right and would go right off the side of the road in a matter of seconds if I were to let go of the wheel.

That could be a lot of things - maybe not the alignment - tire pressure, ball joint going bad, crown in road, severe semi-driven groove, bolts wallowed out, etc.

Is your steering wheel still centered? There's really only 2 adjustments (well, other than castor - but that requires more lift to come into play usually).

Would be curious what your findings locate...

toe and sterring wheel center are the only things adjustable. I would check your air pressure.

I have a jeep and it goes over shit.

Should've put a Rubicon sticker on it. Then, it'll always be aligned.

The Rubicon sticker didn't help.

The factory alignemt isn't very good. Some brand new ones need to be adjusted. Once you have it dialed it should be solid till you hit rocks with your tierod.
