Default Wife is happy now

She has been begging me to do some work to her 03 Liberty so last week I got some parts and started.

Before.Bone stock with 235/70-16 street tires on steel wheels.


After. Daystar 2.5" BB,extended shocks,245/75-16 MTR Treadwrights on Aluminum wheels.And I installed a Sirius radio setup.



She is in heaven now! Never seen a woman get so excited about tire hum.We took it out in a deep field behind the house and it did surprisingly well. Next up in front and rear recovery points and some extra lights.

Must say this was a pretty fun project because she spent two days out in the garage with me turning wrenches and busting her knuckles with me.Matter of fact she replaced the upper A-arms/ball joints while I was taking the struts apart and installing the spacers.

I just went to add pull points on my `09 and they left out the nut certs to save pennies. so you'll have to add them to use the stock points. left off the ones on the skids too

I dont think I using any of the stock stuff. Going to Tractor Supply to get two 2" straight recievers and two d-rings then drilling them to mount to the framerail so the end where the ball would bolt sticks thru the bumper cover and thread d-rings thru the holes.
