Nothing but red X's. You need to sign up for a www.photobucket.com account (it's free, and allow's hot-linking) so ppl can see your pictures, either that or just link to them. I had to right click and go to properties copy the link and paste it to see the pictures.

Your Liberty looks good, congrats on the lift, keep us updated.

I didn't have a digital camera so I went to Walmart at lunch time today, bought one, took pictures, and returned it. It was actually broken anyways, but the pictures took.

And yes, I'll wash the blue junk off my tires... tonight.

Lemme know what you guys think.

Okay

Big Tires. Cool.

Now that kit. It's front coil overs and rear springs. Rear shocks are extra, right?

You are correct. I didn't have a retailer around me that sold Rancho so I went with Skyjacker H7088 shocks. They ride nice. No more body roll than with stock suspension. Steering seems to be more responsive and tighter, which is nice. The only problem I have with the lift, which I was expecting from reading about it on here, was that my ball joint makes contact with the front spring when fully extended downward. Other than that, I love it.

Sorry about taking so long to reply.... The lift was the Skyjacker 2.5" Platinum spring lift. Comes with coil overs for the front and springs for the rear. Had to purchase shocks separately and went with Skyjacker's H7088 shocks.

The installation took a little over 4 hours. That was including replacing all 4 rotors and pads.

The fender flares are stock. They're the '03 Freedom Edition flares.

The only problem I have now is still having the stock tire on my spare carrier. The bumper is in the way when trying to install a larger tire so I'll have to rig something up to extend the carrier.

Thanks, glad you guys like it. I sure do. Just put 1500 miles on it without any problems this week.
