Traded in GTO for Liberty! Pics and ? inside

Traded in a 2004 GTO 6 speed the other day for a 2010 Jeep Liberty Limited with 17k Miles. (Selec trac II)(Cobalt ss before gto)I loved the gto but living in michigan i needed a more all around car. I love everything about the Jeep. Its Great! I have a few plans for her, maybe a mild lift and maybe some wheels and 31" tires. What are the top lift kits around 2-3"? Thanks!

Yep you don't want that lift
Go OME and be done
check out jeepinbyal for lifts from 750 on up
PLUS it really does help to read through the posts on here and LOSTJEEPS, then you'll learn what others have done and the best bang for your buck

Just about everyone runs the HD 927 front springs and MD 731s rear. Buy the whole kit with front shocks and the n132L rear shocks.
You'll need the teraflex extended front bumpstops and jba rear bumpstops or use hockey pucks.

Listen to Tom, he is the lift reverend. Anyways, if you use AtTheHelm's list, you can do a clevis lift and get the jba 1/4" strut spacer plate and get 3-3.5" of lift. Then for tires, most go with 245/75r16. It's pretty much the biggest you can go without rub and needing to regear.

Oh that was a pretty nice GTO you had there.
