If you have the Selec-trac transfer case, it won't hurt a thing to use 4wd high on a hard paved road because it is a full-time system with a differential in the t-case. If you have Command-trac, you can damage driveline components by using 4wd on hard surfaces because there's no differential between the front and rear axles, causing them to "bind" whenever they can't slip the tires enough to relieve the stress.
Just my .02 on the CRD; I wish they were still available in the Liberty. A diesel is the perfect powerplant for a truck or SUV in my opinion.
My 2010 Liberty is not getting very good mileage; only about 18 mpg, but it sure is a nice vehicle and built so much sturdier than the competition (Escape, CRV, etc.).

After 2.5 years ownership, our 08 Libby is pulling down about 22.3 combined mpg. Not terrible, but not great either.

Welcome to the forum. To find out your MPGs fill your tank all the way up and then reset your Tripometer on the dashboard by clicking the knob until you find the miles you have driven then pressing it again and holding it down. It should change to zero. Now with the tripometer at 0 and the gas tank full drive until your next fill up, when you get to the station, make note of how many miles you have driven on the tripometer and make note of how many gallons the pump says you put in. Now take the miles driven and divide them by the gallons put in the tank. Thats your MPGs

My first tank fill up I got 19mpg. She only has 600 total miles on her so I only expect it to get better with a nice break-in period and starting full synthetic @ 3k.

^^ The moment you call your Jeep a Car, it starts having mechanical issues. They don't like being called cars

We drove from Northern Cincinnati area to North Carolina to near the South Carolina state line.. 385 miles which was 22.5 mpg. So the second fill up from North Carolina to Savanna Georgia. We did about an hour worth of stop-go traffic in Charleston SC to visit a lighthouse YouTube - South Carolina 2010 018.MOV
we did 405 miles with a little over 1/8 tank (2.5 gal) still to spare! 23.3MPG I was impressed since the traffic we hit but on the highway we did rather well.

I had been driving around a hemi until this past august. Then I got my '10 Liberty and going from lots of power to maybe half of that, means I have to compensate with a heavy foot. Consequently, Im getting around 11 mpg.

Or, you could just pull away from each stop sign and not have to try and impress the girls by barking the tires?
