Liberty Diesel, 2005 or 2006?

The Liberty Diesel has captured my imagination. Apparently, they were built in 2005 and 2006. Any reason to prefer one year over the other? The general rule of thumb is not to buy the first year, but it does not always hold.

There are many that like one or the other better. I preferred going for the 05 for 2 reasons. One was the 7/70 powertrain warranty that was available to be transfered to the second owner. 06's had 3/36 only. The other was that the 05 has a few less computer nanny's that regulate traction.

With those criteria, went searching for the cleanest low mileage one for the best price.

Many owners seem to prefer the 06 with the extra traction control.
Personnel preferences mostly.

05"s provide better fuel economy, especially after the GDE flash.

We have an 06 CRD, and we are getting better mileage than my buddy with his 05. He is running the Suncoast tc kit, about every lilttle mod you can do to the crd engine, like boost hoses, egr/segr box, but no chip yet. All we have done on my girls is deleted the muffler 2.5''' pipe out from cat, egr/segr mod, custom air intake(i mean custom), and thats it. Even running 32'' tires while he was on like 30's or 31's. Also has per the tranny, the 06 has had less problems with tc shutter than my buddies did, reason being why he upgraded as well. Also we wheel are libby, and his is a street queen for now.

And the GDE i cannot wait to get are ecm in for them to tinker with. I have seen and hear so many good things about them guys from Lostkjs, and from talking with them

Green diesel engineering. Google it and go to their site. Much to learn. Makes the crd run lika a striped ape with much better fuel economy.

Do you have any pics of your custom air intake. Curious to see what it looks like.
