Very nice and clean. Looks great and I actually like the tire cover.

Hello all. Newbie to the forum. Looking at all of these wonderful pics of some wicked looking Liberty's here. Love the off road pics. I have a new to me 2005 Liberty Sport 3.7 that is probably 100% stock. Stock tires, rims, no tow hitch or hooks. Nothing. Just a base Jeep Liberty. I intend to lift her slightly once I can convince the wife. I'm interested in some off roading but you have to know, I'm a wuss. I have never been off road beyond a dirt road or 2. After Sandy, my home area is still a little beat up so there are some dirt roads still a little flooded out, thats really all. I want to take it on some easy trails but I'm super nervous. The question I have is, considering the stock nature of Lady Liberty (I'm a romantic), where can I go and where cant I go. I'm hoping beach running will be possible but I'm not sure if I should let the air out. I have seen others on the beach with full tire pressure. Also, thinking about some wooded trails where the biggest issue might be deep puddles and swamping out. Perhaps even some carriage wheel ruts and stuff. I dont intend to climb rocks, not in stock mode anyway, but I'm sure to hit s a few in the wooded trails. I'm on Long Island so there is not much to do here, but upstate NY is not out of the question. I see some of the pics here seem to be stock Liberty's and they look like they are doing amazing things. I want an honest opinion. How off road capable are these things, really. In stock mode. I'm a scuba diver and I have to occasionally have to run small trails to get to the dive site but again, nothing more than a dirt road. I have seen some of the pictures where it looks like the rear wheels are moving at different angles (is this possible on a stock Liberty?). Sorry for the Noob questions. Gotta learn somehow, right. Thanks for the time. Oh, not sure if it matters but the old girl has 162k miles on her. Maybe that will mean I shouldnt even try. Again. New to Jeeps.

Steve

Flooded out dirt roads sound like a good place to start. I also have an 05. Take it slow at first, and don't take any chances. Independent suspensions (like the Liberty) are more fragile than solid axles (like the Wrangler) so you need to take it easy, but Libbies can do just fine. Don't go alone, though, in case you get stuck and need a push/pull, at least until you have a winch. Until then, you might want to bring some of the stuff you'd keep in the car in winter, like a bag of sand or rock salt, and maybe a couple of pieces of plywood to wedge under stuck tires.

Gradually you'll learn where you can and can't go. Oh, BTW, regarding waiting for your wife to approve the lift, it's easier to ask forgiveness than permission.

I know. What are the odds that I would be shopping for a used vehicle in New York and I would find a Jeep with stickers from dive shops that I used to rent from on it. I lived in Hawaii for 12 years and I would have loved doing some off road on the North Shore.

The stickers were really the deciding factor when I bought this. I was looking at a Dodge Ram 1500 (red one next to mine in the pic) but once I saw the Dive logos, I knew this bruddah was Da kine. Gotta love my little Android shaka on the other side...lol

Just picked up this 2006

Started by painting the wheels and AVS tail lights. Getting intake, hitch, mud mats, spare tire cover and other little goodies.

Added a roof basket, hitch, short rubber antenna, snazzer wheel cover to start. Mechanically, she runs amazing. Flushed out the tranny, front and rear diff., t-case, and synthetic motor oil.

I love this beast!
Where did you get the shorty antenna? Been wanting to put one on mine. I hate the long one.

A roof rack or roof rails, depending on if you have the cross members or not.

Everything is stock, this was my first time "off roading" it was really just a kind of rocky dirt trail with a few fairly steep hills. It was fun!

Hi guys! First time Jeep owner. Here's my '07 Liberty Sport 4X4, three days old (to me) only 64k miles. So far I love it! I have a few mods in mind but nothing significant for a while... I have a baby on the way so this is our new family vehicle.
