Frankenlifted Jeep Liberty
« on: July 26, 2010, 09:42:20 AM »
My weekend project that's been awhile in planning:

Drove 500 miles round trip for the Moab wheels on Friday night.


All of the pieces laid out


Jeep in ready position


Finished product


I'll get some better pics tonight.  My father and I spent awhile on this getting it all in and setup.  We were surprised at how tall it make the final product, not quite as tall as his 2010 Rubicon with 35's but kinda close :) 

I need to take it for an alignment tonight, but just to get it to drive down the road we had to adjust the lower Arms out so that they tires sat flat on the ground, they were tipped in bad at the bottom.  Then we had to go 5 full turns out on each of the tie rod ends to geth the toe in to an acceptable level. 

I have one more  rear isolater for the back, I'll be putting that in within a few weeks.  After the alignment tonight and some fender/pinch weld trimming up front tomorrow it will be ready for the new 245/75/16 Goodyear Dura Trac's later this week.

Now for a roof rack and saving for the ARB :)

That Jeep looks really good.   I like the mods you did to it.    Love the look of it.

I really want to take my Jeep up to Colorado and do the Alpine Loop, and eventually Moab.  I have an '02 Wrangler.  They are definitely a money pit.  Modifications always start out fun, but they end up being a PITA.  When I swapped out my rear axle, it took me forever to get all four rear control arms measured up correctly so my tires would wear evenly.
