Just bought a 2012 Jeep Liberty Toad

That was yesterday. Today...insurance and getting the extra car ready to sell. Then it's time to enter the world of tow plates, A-arms, braking systems, rear hitch. I hope for smooth sailing on all of it.

Congrats! Very cool. I'm trying to decide between a Wrangler and a Liberty. Tough choice so far!

I just got the deal on the Liberty. There were no Wranglers I wanted at the time. This is our 3rd Liberty and they are very nice. Depending on the Wrangler, they are noisier than the Liberty as all Liberties are hard tops whereas many Wranglers are not.

I already have a Roadmaster Stowmaster 5000 that came with my coach. I will be getting a Roadmaster baseplate installed sometime in the near future. The Liberty is around 4500 ponds, so should tow easily behind my large coach.

The Liberty is a nice toad. Much more pleasant to drive than a Wrangler (on real roads, off-road is something else).

You guys made a great case for the Liberty, so after a lot of looking, I found an '06, with about 75,000 miles, a 3.7, and AT. If it checks out, I'll make an offer on it today! Anything I should ask the dealer about (like the windows that fall down, the timing belt that seems to break at 90,000 miles, etc.)?

Well, it didn't check out. Dealer said it needs about $4,500 just in parts, so they wholesaled it. I'm back to square one.
