Totally with you, Slolane, especially as a regular, street-use vehicle.

It is hard to see but it is just below and behind the roller fairlead and actually fastened to the crossmember that I fabricated for towing. It is located between the bumper and the crossmember so it is protected.


I hope that helps.

Got the plug for the MH electrical connection done. Mine ended up between the fairlead and the clevis. Painted it black to blend in with the bumper. It's pretty well protected so it's all ready to get hooked up to the MH and roll!

Jeep Liberty Question

Forgive me if this is not the right thread to ask this question, But with all the Jeepsters here to learn from, I have a limited budget so a Wrangler is out of the question but I want to do some moderate off roading in NV AZ NM also fire roads and trails in my home state of MI. Can I add a 2 in lift kit & larger tires to a 2006 Jeep Liberty Sport with auto trans. Thanks in advance for your replys.

Any 4x4 will be more than adequate for fire roads and light trails.


If it has a true 4x4 selector, then that's great AWD isn't as good off-road, but would still be fine.


Does it have 4-LO? Even better.


Some decent tires. Don't need to be mud tires, just some quality AT's that have a bit of toughness to them to handle a few rocks.


Try to plan on not getting stuck. Generally all vehicles get stuck at some point, 4x4 just lets you get further away from civilization before you do.


If you're going places where you might get stuck then there's a whole safety/recovery discussion and I don't want to Hijack the OP's thread.

If your just beginning to go offroad and have nobody else going then its wise to use 4wd to get out not in. Once you get a feel for what you and your vehicle are capable of then start going farther using 4wd.

Don't you love the full dress Jeeps that will hardly see dust let alone some good mud! They will never know the honor and pride of a good Arizona pinstripe!
