Now that is darn out right UGLY!!!!!

NOT!!! I am impressed, you picked all the right aftermarket add to enhance the Liberty perfect. Looks like you also have a great place on the cross bar of the grill guard if you ever want to add additional lighting.

Again, great job!!!

Thanks! I'm planning on adding a set of PIAA HID fog lights on the front bar. Plus I am swapping out the headlights for some with fogs. And changing them to HID as well. And my finally light add on will be a KJ light bar on the roof converted to HID.

Where did you get the light guards? I've been looking at the same brush guard, but in stainless and was also thinking about the tail light guards.

The taillight guards are by far the hardest to find. They are BlackHorse, but everything else is SteelCraft. I actually found the guards on eBay, because everyone had them on backordered.

You might want to try the PIAA lights before investing in the OEM fog lights. Don't get me wrong the OEM lights are good, but there are better lights offered aftermarket.

I'm not going aftermarket. I ordered the switch over kit from Mopar. It consists of new headlamps, wiring harness, and control switch. Then I'll be adding HID kits to both the fog lights and headlights. Plus the 2" PIAA HID cross country lights. Then a KJ roof light bar converted to HID. ( I like to light up the road at night ). LOL

If you don't mind my asking, what is the cost to change over to the OEM fog lights with the use of the kit....I am just curious.

Make sure you post photos of the KJ roof light bar when you get it installed. If you think of it take photos along the installation process and give us a good write up.

I would love to do the front grill guard on mine, but with the Blue Ox tow bar brackets in place, that is out of the question.

I'll do my best to document the process. May be until the beginning of the year to get everything finished, hectic time of the year right now.

Where did you find the fog kit? I was thinking about doing it for my truck. I regret not getting fogs, but thw skyslider was worth losing them lol. Any idea if the kits works with the 2011s?

I ordered it from a local dealership. It runs a little less than $300. And according to them, it only works on '08 & '09 models. Not sure why, but that's what they said.

Dang, I'm thinking of just ordering headlights with fogs built in, then just make an aux switch for them. Would have been nice to just have the factory switch though.

not a huge fan of the tail light guards but everything else is nice. I do like the half front guards a litttle better but yours is ok. Nice work!
