    Look for the owners manual behind the dash grab bar if you haven't already. The 2005 2.4 with 6 speed gets better fuel economy than any other 4x4 Liberty. If it hat ESP I would consider getting one for my daughter.

    My son has the 2.4. He likes it fine -- has had no problems. I've driven it also and like the way it runs and handles. Only difference -- not quite as fast or throaty sounding. I would have no issues with having one.

    You are rated to tow 2000#. Your gas mileage is (according to the EPA) 2MPG better than if you were driving the 3.6L, 6-speed.

    Those engines are used in other DC products so you should have no problem if you need parts. The only major difference is that you will have a timing belt replacement -- check your manual when you get it.

    I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

    thanks for the info guys. more than likely i'm not going to be towing my motorcycle. i haven't yet. i don't even own a trailer. i was just wondering in case i ever needed to. but that's a good point with having the liberty full of gear and people if that would be any different from towing a motorcycle. i play drums in a band, and even though i haven't had any gigs since i purchased the liberty you can bet that all of my drums including hardware will be in the back along with a passenger or two. i'm sure it's going to handle great even with a few hundred pounds if weight in it.
