    Hey all, I recently got a 2006 Liberty Sport and this thing is in immaculate condition, I dont plan on going hardcore off-roading in it but would like to get either a LSD or lockers front or rear, im not really looking to spend more than $500 so if I can only do one or neither thats alright, I'm just wondering what your guys' opinions were

    Your totally SOL for "only $500",sorry.

    A good locker will run you $1000 before install,and a good LSD will run you about $600 before install and both prices are per axle.

    ... Picked the wrong Jeep for doing mods on a reasonable budget.

    KJ is either DIY, pay up, or both.

    Leave it stock, and go drive it. It's a great rig stock once you replace the sacked out suspension with stock height parts. I think mine came up 1-1.5' with stock replacement moog springs and new kyb shocks. It will never be a monster truck.
    Hell when traction control kicks in it ain't going to spin :)
