Starting Her right
Purchased a 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited for my 15 year old Daughter.
She loves Jeeps and a Straight "A" Student, on Varsity Gymnastics and I could not pass up this awesome deal on this Jeep for her, I have 13 Months to do the Tires/ Brakes/ Exhaust and Shocks for her before she get's her License and can Drive on her own, I do all my own on this stuff so it's no problem for Daddy to "fix'er up" for my little Girl, Mommy was happy too. It's Loaded with everything.
Bought her 16 year old Brother a 2003 S10 ZR-2 this past March and he did his own Shocks/ Brakes and Exhaust, just put the Upgraded Wheel/ Mud Tires he wanted, and a 1100 watt, dual 12' woofer sound system we Installed, sounds great.
Got both of them into 4 wheeling, Dad has a 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500HD Crew Cab.

Hello everbody,I am new to the site. This is my first post.Afew weeks ago we got some rain,so like some other folks I got out to enjoy the mud.My 04 is still stock,but I still enjoy getting it in the mud.
Well I have a YJ and my wife has a ZJ. I took my parents out on some trails in my wife's Grand Cherokee to do some geocaching and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The trails were relatively easy, maybe a rating of 2-2.5 but they got bitten by the Jeep bug. Dad had me keep a look out for different 4x4 suv's, and I naturally looked more at Jeep grand Cherokees than anything. I knew a wrangler would not be a really good choice for them, as it is hard for them to get in and out of with the high door sills. But I found them something that they ended up buying and they are extremely happy with it so far. Here you go,

It's interesting that 30x9.5 BFG All Terrains look to small on it...
Now they have a really neat geo cruiser (what they call their geocaching vehicle).
New to me 07. Took it for a little drive up the mountain. Libby handled herself a lot better than I imagined with stock. Time to save for that lift. End goals are pretty mild. I just want to be able to get where I'm going and not take the easiest trail. Suggestions?
Hey J, Glad to see you on here. Billy was telling me about how nice your Liberty was, and then when we saw it on the camp out at Patagonia, I was impressed. That was one of the factors that I had in mind when I was looking for something for my dad. They really like theirs and it already has a lift and 30x9.5 BFG AT's. Those tires look too small in my opinion. I posted a picture of it on this thread.
This is my 2007 Liberty...I plastidipped the wheels and moulding flat black. Right now it has BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain 265/75/r16s on it.
I am looking to get a 3.5" lift kit, cold air intake, dual exhaust, and different taillights/headlight bulbs eventually.
Hey, those look really good! Maybe I'll do that to mine. The silver paint is peeling on a couple of them.

Save your money
NO cold air intake, dual exhaust, tail lights, they do nothing
get a good full spring lift, and regear to 4.10s
Lift will be the next thing I do...Just trying to wait until I can save up some money, or until my shocks need replacing anyways. My tires still have lots of life left on them, but are they too small for a lift?
Does my Daughter Qualify as a New 15 year old KJ Owner

Always saying "Daddy, I want a Jeep", I kept telling her "your Not getting a Jeep - Too much Money"
I guess persistence Prevails
Straight A Student, Varsity Gymnastics and my little girl, Mommy saw it and said "buy it", what a steal.
Got a year to do the Exhaust, Brakes and Shake it down for her.
Happy to Start her out right.
