I am picking up a 2008 KK today. Anyone got current FAQ info on these newer models. I will check out the LOST site too.

Thanks.

This forum is the wrong place to go for Liberty info. This is like the JP Magazine of Jeep forums as far as the Liberty is concerned (i.e. no coverage and lots of haters).

Go to xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx or xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx for information.

Also, I think maybe the Mods ought to add the Frankenlift by All J Products to the list of available lift kits on the first page. Thanks mods!

My response to that is "the members make the site". It's not up to the mods to perform every little nuance that there is. Get involved!

We are getting ready to re-do the FAQ and would like your input as to what and how you want it organized.

Things like specs, mods, build threads, wheeling links, it's up to you. What we do want is original material, what we don't want are links to LOST. LOST is a spin-off of JF, not the other way around and that is the ONLY reason that links to them are not deleted for "rule violation".

Don't worry about the "haters" having there way in this area, I've controlled them in the MK section pretty well (the Compass is probably the most hated Jeep ever built) and I can do it over here too. Using the Report Post (!) button down on the lower left also helps.

For some examples on the FAQ lay out and listings look these over and give me some feedback on what YOU think would be best.

My fav (because I did it) http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f98/q...s-more-519045/

Rusty's over in the YJ area: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/y...s-here-580536/

Balloo's in the Cherokee section: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/t...ks-tsbs-89273/

and ZJones's in the ZJ/WJ area http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/z...u-post-880249/

Look 'em over and give us some feedback.

Thanks!

I just found what I think are some neat write ups in Allpar.

2002 Jeep Liberty description and information

2005 2005 Jeep Liberty description and information

2008 2008 - 2011 Jeep Liberty - description, photos, details, specifications

Also lots of good links inside each of these links. Of particular interest to me was the diesel review in the 2005 listing. Jeep Liberty and Liberty Sport car reviews

Different bolt patterns,you will need spacer/adapters which require a lift then.

well if my idea is right i can do a 6 in ids lift on my liberty by buying longer struts the top brackets arent part of the strut so that and als a arms and for the rear i need longer springs longer arms and a longer driveshaft but at the moment i am going for a 4 in lift kit which will bring my rear arms all the way down and my driveshaft should fit i jacked it up 4 in from origional height and the tires still sat on the ground so i think i should be fine
