I was thinking of what a 2.5" lift would look like on my 2009 Liberty limited. Any one have a few pictures?
The kit is complete with struts, coils and shocks to give the jeep a 2.5" lift but its not cheap. I found a local dealer who sells the kit for $900.
After looking at some pictures of the lift installed, I am not sure it's what I'm after. I like the liberty for the retractable roof but as a daily driver it's kinda gutless and really sucks gas. With the lift and maybe new tires and rims would make me want to appreciate it more but I'm no so sure.
I was in the same boat as you. Lift or not to lift. Even though it will be a bit of a dog I decided that as much as I like it now, I'll really like it after the lift. The front kinda rides like a brick now and the spring change out will be a vast improvement.
I ended up getting the 250k Kit from Skyjacker and it did sag a bit after a couple thousand miles. I put on a set of JBA ½” clevis spacers in the front to level it back out. It looks just about right now. I have a set of JBA strut spring spacers that may end up going in over the summer. All of which are just band aids for now. Since the kit came with Nitro shocks I might just swap in a set of JBA springs at some point in the future? I am also running 245/75/R16 Duratracs with a cat back Dynomax exhaust and the Hypertech tuner. I am happy so far, but this thing is still pretty gutless and I could not imagine living above sea level or towing anything, geezzz.
That's 3.5" on 245/75-16s(31s). Sure there's a power loss, but it isn't too bad. It kicks down a bit more in the mountains. Mpg dropped a bit, I'm averaging 14-15 instead of the 16-17 I was getting. It's a OME/Bilstein lift. 927 front springs, 731 rear springs, bilstein shocks, 1/4" top plate, 3/8" clevis, and 2 extra rear isolators. Also al's a-arms are pretty much a must at this height. Rides great on and offroad.
