2008 with a little Bling...

Just added a little Bling to the Liberty..

Chrome Mirror and Handle covers from ebay, Vent Visors and Hood Deflector from 4wheel drive.

Wasn't too sure about the chrome covers when I bought them, but I think they look really good…Before and After pix..

It looks great!, it helps bring out the paint - only downside with chrome is that you have to stay on top of it as far cleaning and waxing. I remember doing that with my 70' Chevelle.

Not near the same as the chrome from days of old. Todays over lay chrome appearance packages are actually a plastic over lay with a bright polished finish. Pretty much maintance free.

What seller on Ebay did you use? I have noticed a number of listing with a ship from location in Taiwan or China that list these at a bargain basement price. But sure question buying from them for the same reason/concerns.

I bought from the guy in taiwan corseautosports (11921)

He has a lot of positive feedback. It was $50 for everything shipping included. I tried to buy from the guy in NJ since not too far away from me. But he wants over $100 I think it is $112 for the exact same thing, the descriptions read the same. I made him a best offer and he came back at $100, plus since I am in NJ I would have to pay taxes too...

The guy in taiwan shipped them out as I paid with paypal, and everything arrived 3 days later. I was surprised at how quickly it arrived. Fit is good...look is awesome. Only time will tell how they hold up.

Future mods, will be a push bar in the front with a couple of lights, a tow hitch, 2" lift new tires and wheels...hope to have all done by winter...

I am also looking at adding a 2" lift, what lift were you thinking of going with?

jonrjen, My Hubby said Daystar...will need new set of tires on the jeep come winter, so we figured it would be the best time to do the lift get new wheels and tires same time.

He wants to change the springs out with the daystar lift, I think because we have read on a number of post that the stock springs might end up sagging...

someone mentioned teraflex on another thread..I haven't researched that one yet...but that might be another option. All comes down to $$$, not necessarily the cheapest, but the best bang for the buck...

Have you looked in to any lifts yet..

I have just begun to do my homework on lifts. I had also been following the other post on which lift kit to choose. I will be going with a full spring kit. I would like a 2" lift that also give a good ride at the same time.
I don't have a problem spending in the $1,300 to $1,600 range for the right solution.

-- I know, I found that Noxon though works really good for chrome helps keep it stain free :]

How do you feel about the quality of the chrome door handle covers? I'm thinking about adding these too. Can you tell up close that they are "covers" over the handles?

As for the lift,
I've been doing a lot of research on it and I think I've decided on OME spring lift. It's more expensive that say the daystar spacer lift and doesn't get quite as much lift, but I think the benefits of improved ride and flex would out-way the cost. I don't want to spend the money on a JBA lift, so I think the OME would be the best fit for me. Not sure if that's what you're looking for, but it's a thought.
