So, I am scrubbing the idea of transforming her from a 2wd to 4wd. I just want to make her a one-of-a-kind street ride. She is a 2012 Limited Latitude 2wd black loaded with all the factory goodies. Now, I ask you all out there for some ideas. How can I make her look like the perfect monochrome black killer Liberty Limited Latitude 2wd. What wheels and tires, what suspension, etc should I go with? Help!
If you want a street ride, just keep it 2wd. If you wheeled it, then sure think about a 4wd swap. Even then, if you were to do a 4wd swap, take the plunge and do a solid axle swap. The electronics alone would make the swap difficult, so make it worth while lol
Start by getting the factory Jet wheels. They are 20" wheels on nice low profile street tires. They are a little big for my taste as I prefer the big tire small wheel ratio instead of the opposite, but they've grown on me. Ask board member LibertyRS (I think thats his handle) about the lowering kit he put on his. Other cosmetic goodies to consider are chrome mirror covers and maybe mud flaps and a rear bumper guard.
Good luck, and let us know how you mod your Liberty!
OK, last post on this subject of what to do with my Liberty. I ordered Nitto Terra Grapplers in 255/55-18 mounting on the factory limited 18" wheels that I am going to plasti dip black. Then Ill be looking at finding a totaled out in the rear Liberty 4x4, take all the front drive parts and whatever I need and put it all under mine. This is my summer job to get it ready for next fall and winter. Strip out the rest of the totaled out ride and sell the metal for scrap to recoup some of my funds. Sell the rest of the parts to recoup too and keep her. I really do love the Lib. Ill improve her over the years, keep her and see what I come up with in time. Sorry for the repeated threats on the same subject, I know it was getting old. All is well. Now if we can just get through this crappy winter weather season!
Good luck with the project! It sounds like it will be a good combination of fun and challenge. If you successfully convert yours to 4WD, document the process and post a write up! You will be the first to do so with the KK to my knowledge, and I know I've seen people asking about this 2 to 4WD conversion before.
