Lets see some IFS libbys for some future inspiration, after all our vehicles arent getting any younger.



Now I would be a proud owner of that vehicle.
Don't you guys call this "polishing a turd"?

I don't like the Liberty. Never have, never will. Now the newer one looks more like a Cherokee, so from a styling stand point I like it better.

I think this one should be painted with a big ol'e rainbow on it. :D

Ford still makes Mustangs, but which would you rather have?

1965/2008 or a 1975. Most people would pick the really old one's, or the newest one. As long as they keep making parts for the XJ I can have a "like new" go anywhere vehicle.

Update: Looks like a Liberty with axle swap and a TrailReady front and rear bumpers.

I wouldnt mind a straight axle libby at all, but I would never run a IFS one.
On the plus side, I think I found the front bumper I want for my XJ. I'll have to design it, but this is the style I was looking for. Thanks!

You are going for a custom build?
Yes. Well I'm going to design it, shoot it over to Mark at DetoursUSA. Same company that built my rear bumper. I'm sure he'd build it for me, I just have no idea how much. That will be the real limiting factor on having the custom done.

I could go for a Libby if it had a solid axle. But an IFS front end just SUX in the dirt.
Exactly, boy I wish it has a solid axle from the factory.
Wonder how much fab work needs to be done to convert one??

I have seen IFS Chevys converted but they have a very solid frame and used D60s to do the conversion. What do you know about the unibody under a Libby?

Not a whole lot.

But people swap in solid axles all the time, there really isnt as much fab work as one would think. You just need to know how to weld well enough to trust your life on your welds:thumbsup:

i think the only thing that turns me off about the libby is that small v6 engine it has

I would have to agree, I wish the 4.0 was still around.

When I was looking for a new vehicle 3 years ago my dealer offered me a sweet deal on a brand new Libby,this thing was fully loaded every opition checked the color I wanted and everything...but I walked away with a Dakota,the Libby is nice but at that time I saw Jeep as either a Cherokee or Wrangler anything else wasn't a real Jeep.

I like the KJ's its what i learned to drive on and i say it does a pretty good job of replacing the cherokee how ever nothing can live up to the cherokee's legacy. But the IFS actually flexes quite a bit and they ride nice and chrysler did take some hints so you can get the renegade. which is pretty cool. so all in all im hapy to wheel with my buddy's KJ and kinda wish my mom still had hers.

As for the minvans those things are sweet did the RAAM race (race across america, bicycle race 3000 miles) and one of those vans was one of our chase vehicles and that thing was awesome
