eh, pretty sure that was filmed at RC. I think dave has done everything that they showed with a 2.5'' lift.

That's pretty cool. Looks like it has some good articulation too.

Yea, but I think it would be awesome for him to be able to show you guys up with his Liberty. It would make me chuckle.... hahahaha

Hey, I didn't tear up anything that can't be repainted, rebent, or replaced! :mrgreen: This kit is way out of my price range, though. At $3,717.50 for the lift, $625.25 for front axles with cut down CV joints, and $150 for new brake lines I'd rather put that kind of funds into the TJ and build an insane trail rig. I might consider a bigger lift for the Libby in the future, but the real limiting factor is the tire sized you can fit in the wheel wells without doing some major trimming. Since it's still a DD I'm stuck at 31" tires, so for now I'll be happy with the 2.5" lift and extra inch or so I've given her with spacers. And yeah, I've run the trail 2 and trail 1c sections that guy ran without the help of the extra lift, mud tires, and lockers he has on his Libby.

That is why I suggested a "Dave needs a bigger lift" charity ride....

I agree.


We should instead have a "Kidnap the guys who used to wheel" trip and take Jonny and Chuck out and get them muddy. :badgrin:

I am working on Chuck right now!!!! I tell him he is wasting two jeeps in his driveway. I am trying to get him to come out the next trip...

He keeps saying something about his bike... Not sure.

Hey Dave, are you any closer to doing this? And 1 guest was asking me about this last night.
