Long...but please read and comments are appreciated...positive and negative.
Well...I don't know about the "ultimate" but I believe it may just be the most radical.
I am looking for some feedback on what ya'll think...still trying to formulate and calculate on what to do...here is the rough idea.
Take a KK and add as many MOPAR parts to it to build as close to a radical OEM type Liberty as possible-
Axles from a Power Wagon (lockers and 4.56 gears)
HEMI and 545RFE from a Durango/Aspen (oil pan gives great clearance for diff and the accesories are tucked in nice and tight).
Tcase from Rubicon (Rocktrack with 4.1:1)
Control arms from a JK (long and decently flexy)
Factory coils (perhaps some OME), maybe even some heavily modded struts.
Sway bar discos from a Rubion or Power Wagon.
And the not so factory...
Heavily cut firewal to fit the add'l 2 cylinders/ longer Hemi Length.
Custom front frame structure (maintain factory main rails only), hang fenders and custom bumper off of the tube frame.
Move rear axle back a few inches for clearance with tires and rear door.
Use only outer fenders and heavily clearance for TJ style aftermarket flat tube fenders.
Add winch, on board air, custom heater box due to modded firewall. Re-use factory dash but not the inner structure (again due to clearanced firewall).
37" tires max (sick of 40"+ builds and the lack of a good challenge with the big tires). Thinking a beadlock wheel and KM2's.
NO RADICAL SUSPENSIONS, NO CRAZY INTERIORS. Just some full width solid axles with full lockers and a low center of gravity.
Basically, as if Jeep had set out to use off the shelf parts to build the ultimate off road Liberty.
Feel free to tell me how stupid this is...it just fuels my desire to do it. I have already taken the basic measurements...and it is entirely doable!
