lifting my 2003 liberty

I want to lift my 2003 Liberty Renegade. I was looking at the 2.5" frankenlift, which seems like a good lift, but i want to go higher. Would it be possible to buy the frankenlift, put it on and get the rock krawler 3.5" X Factor System and use the front strut forksin the rock krawler kit, replacing the original ones and then putting the spring spacers in the rock krawler kit under the rear coil springs that come in the frankenlift kit? Would the 2 lifts work together? Just an idea

No!! The Frankenlift is the biggest you can get, Jeepin By Al sells a 4" and a 6" but really you cant go past 32" tires on the KJ bc the front diff is aluminum any bigger and you bust it, if you really want bigger you need to do a SFA which will run you about $5000 atleast.

The Frankenlift and the OME lift are the best 2 lifts u can get. 2.5" is enough to do some "hardcore" wheelin with a Liberty. Trust me

One thing, many KJ's have a good amount of front and rear suspension sag after a few years. When you do something like the Franky lift (nice lift by the way) - you will most likely yield more than the 2.5". Thier lift brings you to 2.5 over stock highth. There is a good chance you could be at 3 to 4" - depending at where your saggy suspension is at now. FWIW

The Frankenlift uses OME parts but they just add a spacer to make it a little high then just OME coils but you can make your own Frankenlift by add a clevis lift and strut plate but then you have to add your longer bumpstops and if you go real high like that its best to also get some JBA upper arms bc they are made for KJs with a lift and are greaseable and replaceable whereas the stock ones arent
