Lifted Liberty

Does anyone here actually have a lifted liberty?

If so... how is the ride, and how big of a tire do you run?

I'm guessing a 2.5" spacer lift would fit 31's, and the ride should be the same since it's just a spacer.

Does anyone make an actual lift without using spacers? I can't find much out there.

I'm not looking for a serious off roader, but just possibly a new look. If not this, I'll at least get MT/R's of factory size on it soon(tax return).

Something like this (okay, so it's a 10 min. chop job, but it's the general idea)

Skyjacker makes a 2.5" lift that replaces springs. I beleive you can run 32" tires (265 x16) with a 2.5 lift.

My 2003, Lifted, Locked, Loaded


The basic mods are listed in the link. Running 2.5" Daystar lift w/ 245/75-16 MT/R's. Rides and handles well for a 4000+ Lb. suv.
And is fun on the rocks.

Very nice! How do you like the flomaster on it? does it sound decent? is it overpoweringly loud, or just when you get on it?

I run 32" BFG Muds..
I love the ride..! I use the Rocky Road Outfitters COMBO lift..
It rides as if it were a factory option..
Nice and tight, quiet, and with a little trimming, allows me to use the 32" tires..
and contrary to some posts, I have never had a problem getting what I order from RRO..

If you go to my website, I have a link to the video of this obstacle..
