Any more info would be great
Thanks !!
I have part number: X99128N.

I found that the width is 6.5, which was surprising. Might be why I though my 225 looked beefier than on the stock 7 mags. couldn't find the offset.

And the driver never stopped. So its all on my insurance.

I discovered that those crappy plastic fender wells are useless decorations. There are real metal fender wells underneath.

I discovered this because the concrete driveway is 8 inches high and ate my bumper and one of my 31" guard dog MTs, which then ate the fender. I must have gone slightly airborne for the bumper to bite that 8 inch lip at all.
Jeez man...remind me never to get into a car with you. You are an a$$hole magnet. Glad your ok. The truck will be fixed and the pain will go away.

It doesn't take anything extreme. I've hit my OEM receiver several times going over stuff. Fortunately it's tucked up pretty tight and hasn't been damaged, yet.

Wow, it hit even with the lift you have... crazy

I don't think I ever hit the tow receiver on anything with my KJ.... had it for 4 years with stock ride height....

I save the off road stuff for my Wrangler, which I have hit the receiver on the ground getting a trailer into my back yard which is a pretty steep hill..... took it like a champ...lol

The KK is pretty much the family transporter and the wife drives it most of the time, on paved roads...haha

Next up, 15% window tints, smoked tails & front blinkers, larger tires, possibly paint matched wheels in the future, and a 2" lift
Good quality time with the KK. Looking good.

Changed my transfer case fluid. Took about 30 mins. Also snapped a few pics for if anyone needed reference in the future. :BANANA:

Things you'll need: One Jeep Liberty KK,



A drain bucket, ATF+4, and a 10 mm allen wrench.

Check that the fill plug is able to loosen.


Now put your fill bucket underneath and loosen and remove the drain plug.



After it's drained, replace the drain plug, and add your fluids to the fill plug and finish.

I don't have accurate measurement, but I did NOT let any drain out of the fill plug.

Looked normal to me. Nothing out of the ordinary. I doubt the original owner did it, but ya never know.

Now I have some peace of mind knowing my front diff, transmission, transfer case, and rear diff fluid have all been dealt with finally.

There's good thread here on transfer cases and diffs swell. A few things to remember like take fill plug out first. Nothing worse than taking out the drain and letting it out only to soon discover you can't get the fill plug out!
On the diffs its a good idea to break the seal and let oil drain before popping cover. When it comes off you might experience an "explosion" of oil everywhere. And lastly make sure if you have limited slip diff that you get the gear oil with traction modifier or buy it and add it. It is required and it does matter or you'll get a "whine" from your diff.

I found that thread, but no pictures for the transfer case, unless I didn't look hard enough. Now we have more pictures for everyone to use.
