Why does the KK make use of a 5link rear suspenion, besides wanting a better ride. It doesnt seem like it flexes any better and would require more mods to make it flex more where the 3link on the kj just needed longer shocks.

Well could ya speculate? What reasons does a transmission do this? Is it about to die? Ironically it happened right after it spent a week at the dealer. This is EGR valve #3 in 26000 miles.

There is a newly formed Jeep Performance / Dodge Off-Road Performance group within Mopar to develop REAL off-road parts. There are no parts for the Liberty yet, but stay tuned.

Obviously the aftermarket focuses on where the volume is, so the Wrangler is bound to have more competion and product offerings. There are a few companies working on 2008 Liberty parts so you should start to see those coming also.

Thanks for your interest!

Without seeing the fault codes it really isn't possible to comment. The fault codes will store for a couple of start sequences following the event, so if you are able to get into a dealership if it occurs again, that would give them an opportunity to read the codes and diagnose the issue.

I own a base model 2008 Libby and have a few questions

Can the headlights be programed NOT to come on when I unlock the vehicle?

Can the anti-sway program be reflashed onto the ECU when you add an aftermarket hitch?

Did Jeep pre-release any KKs to aftermarket parts companies in order for them to get parts out faster? ie rock sliders, roof baskets, HD bumpers

Why locate the wheel under the vehicle?

What is Jeeps recommended max tire size for the KK?


Thanks for all your help and I love my KK

Oh and another question is the "Change oil" light based on oil duty cycle or by mileage?

All suspension designs have advantages and disadvantages. The rear suspension on the KK was designed to offer better ride quality, improved steering precision and better NVH (isolation) over the KJ. This design has also been used on the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee so it has some level of proven off-road performance. While articulation is an important element of off-roading, the slight differences in the design has been more than offset by the above elements as well as enhanced tractive effort from the 4WD and brake traction control systems for off-roading.


Thanks for your question

It's after 7:00, so we're going to close it for tonight. We will try to answer any open posts in the next several days.

Thanks for participating!

We are glad you love your Liberty!

On vehicles equipped with the ELECTRONIC VEHICLE INFORMATION CENTER (EVIC) it is possible to turn off the headlight on feature with remote unlock (or set it to 30, 60, or 90 second on-time).

Currently, Trailer Sway Control is linked to the trailer tow package and is not a simple reflash when adding an aftermarket hitch.

Vehicle were made avalable to measure during aftermarket supplier event sponsored by Jeep. No "early" vehicles given out.

The spare is underneath because our Design Office preferred it there for aesthetic reasons. Also, there were some KJ customer issues with the spare on the back. The decision for cargo area and overall vehicle length contributed as well as keeping the vehicle CG as low as possible. Honestly, this is one of the toughest packaging issues when discussing new Jeep vehicles because everyone has a different preference.

The maximum recommended tire is the stock tire available from the factory.

Change oil light is based on mileage.

And you guessed right - power steering cooler is in the lower grille area.
