Hey guys, I bought my liberty brand new last may /12. I put a 2" revtec lift and new Goodyear duratrack tires ( 245/75-16)
I'm not sure what to do next. Any suggestions ?

Fellow forum member Atthehelm makes really nice front/rear bumpers and roof racks.

More lights always a good way to start.

Welcome. First person I've heard of with that lift. I'd recommend taking the air dam off.

But if going aftermarket bumpers he'd need a real lift

Do you have the full set of factory skid plates?
Cargo liner and footwell protection?

Your stowage cubby is already full of stuff you need, right?

If so, Just wheel it a few times and see what you need.

Need at least 400 lb springs in front
