For clearance on your Libby either a Rusty's Offroad 2.4" spring lift with an extra 3 2" conduit nuts on top of the front cleavis brackets or a Frankenlift. I went with the Rusty's becaue it was half the price on a group buy, but with your ARB bumper you'll probablt want to do the Frankenlift with the heavy front struts. Either way, you won't believe the difference it makes After that, some good 245/75R16 tires to round out the lift.

Skink Sliders from http://www.rocklizardfabrications.com/ are the way to go for rock rails, as far as I'm concerned. :)

Geez, I should not post while the GFU's distracting me! That's a Rusty's 2.5" lift and heavy duty front springs on the Frankenlift.

Thanks for the feedback! Am doing my homework now on what to do with the lift issue and both Rustys and Frankenlift get good marks from folks that have used them - am leaning towards the Frankenlift at this point. looking like I am going to want the heavyer springs since next up is a front receiver so I can rig up my wench.

My girlfriend wants to know where she can buy Jeep-scented perfume, so I will pay more attention to her.

God grant me the serenity to accept the impossible trails I cannot crawl, courage to crawl the twisted trails I can and the wisdom to keep tire side down.

Thanks guys. I tell ya, part of the fun is watching the double-takes some of the folks in other groups did as a Liberty pulled up the trail. Priceless! I couldn't have done it without all the help spotting, and following Steve in the morning definitely helped by showing me how to pick out the right lines for fun and success over any obstacle he could find.

Plus, you did pull Gonzo out, twice. I am impresed. I cant say that enough. KJ and CJ are the only way to go. Johnny and Dave put on a great show.
