Hey all, I recently inherited my wife's 2009 jeep liberty, my first jeep, however i am quite mechanically inclined.I always wanted a trail vehicle that will double as a dd. now a couple of questions. I have read, read, read, and re read many threads on it, I've also researched a boat load. My questions are what is some good links to aftermarket parts such as lifts, roof racks, bumpers, etc... Googling doesn't seem to bring anything up. I would really like a lift and some beefier meaty tires first and foremost. After reading a spacer lift seems to be wasteful so I'd like to do it right the first time. I have awhile to acquire all the parts though due to being stationed in Okinawa, Japan, and the jeeps back home. I would really like to make this dd trail capable, not necessarily rock climbing as much as trails in the woods, light mud, and all around fun times. Thanks in advance. I'm also in awe at all of these liberty's.
Welcome! Not too sure what to recommend for a lift, I only have the spacers (for now!). But for bumpers and a roof rack, I would either check out AtTheHelm(on JeepForums), or Rock Lizard. For a dd and not so hard core off roading, I would recommend the Hankook Dynapro ATM's, had them on for three years almost(2 sets - 1st set slashed
) and they have gotten me through anything I've gone through/over... Snow, mud, fairly steep hills, etc. Also a very quiet tire for the tread they have imo. There's a lot to do, most of which you should be able to find somewhere in this forum, from big to small!
If you can't find it already posted, I'm sure someone will point you in the right direction, or help you out themselves!
Hope things are going well for you in Japan, looking forward to seeing your Jeep and watching how it progresses! Once again, welcome!!
