So I have a 2012 2WD Liberty Limited Latitude. I love everything about it BUT ITS A 2WD! So, what can I do to it to make it more off road capable and something I want to keep and not trade for a Wrangler! Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well unless you change the fact that it's RWD, the only things would be more for looks. Either way, a lift and tires. Seeing how you don't have to deal with the front diff you could probably go even higher than the 4" that 4x4s are more or less limited to. With a nice lift and larger more aggressive tires you can be both more capable and still get the aggressive look. As for not trading it in.....taking a look at the bill and how much you still owe might possibly help lol
The first pic is one from a dealer, but the second on is mine. I like the looks but I just dont like the Goodyear tires. The fact that it is 2WD i sjust something I will have to live with for a few years!
Well its funny you ask about the 2WD issue. I was on my way back to Fort Sill, OK (I was deployed there) from Missouri in the hot summer. My Bimmer died on me, so I went to the Jeep Dealer originally looking at Wranglers (which I Kick myself in the A#@ for not staying with) and the sales person showed me this Liberty Limited Latitude. I didnt know it was a 2WD when I bought it, and being the stupid idiot I am sometimes, I talked myself into keeping the Liberty and just roll with it. And I really do like it, I dont really get off road that much but I liked the idea of having 4x4 when I need it. But Ill get an old Wrangler or CJ or something for a project toy this summer. I do like the idea of getting that front end up level Benjamin. Clevis Lift? Give me more info about this. I do plan on getting some better tires (some all terrains) very soon. It really is a nice looking and very well equipped ride!
I think that has some info on the clevis. It might be the KJ, but the front is the same as the KK so it would work. Just remember the nice thing about 2wd is you don't have to worry about cvs when lifting. You can go sky high! I think the steering might end up limiting you eventually, I'm not sure. Tommudd or someone will probably correct me if I'm wrong or give more insight lol
