    "Might" be selling my 2002 Jeep liberty with only 24,000 miles on it. H&R 2" lift, new shocks, new brakes all 4 corners, new brake lines, new exhaust, $500 stereo w/android auto, backup camera, Cooper SST Pro 30x9.5/15 and separate studded snows on factory 16" wheel. Interior is like new. Exterior is also spotless, but does have some minor clear coat wear on the roof. Not visible, at least for a short guy like me. I added cruise control and overhead display. Just pasted the NH inspection. Needs absolutely nothing.

    I know I shouldn't sell it, but, honestly, just inherited some $$$ and a 2014 Caddy CTS. So I'm thinking about trading the caddy in on a new Chevy Colorado ZR2 Diesel.

    If I don't sell it I might just throw on an ARB, winch and lockers front and rear. Maybe front coil overs as well.

    This is the one I bought last year with only 11,000 miles. Only one prior owner. Mileage was confirmed on Carfax. They only drove approx. 700 miles per year. Guessing it was pretty much only driven to the grocery store and church and it was regularly serviced.

    They're Cragar 15" Silver D Widows with 30x9.5/15 Cooper SST Pros. Just threw on my studded snows on factory steel rims and I miss those wheels already. Makes the vehicle look soooo different with them on. Even though my 16" studded snows are pretty much brand new I think I'm going to buy some studded 30x9.5/15 Grabber AT2's this week and get those rims back on.

    I like that look. When I finally get around to getting real snows, that might be a route I'll go. Although I still have the crappy steel stockers here with peeling paint I was planning on using.

    I'm retired, primarily due to health issues, and really can't justify keeping it if I buy a new truck. I'm picking up the Caddy tomorrow. If I like it at all, not really a caddy man, I might keep it as a back up for the Liberty. We'll see.

    Had a chance to buy an ARB bumper for $900 shipped yesterday, but figured I better make up my mind which way I'm gonna go before laying out that kind of cash.

    Yeah, I have my snows on the steel rims now and hate the look. They're going ASAP even if I do decide to sell it.

    Plus, something else to think about, would have to upgrade the front springs to run that ARB, H&Rs would last a while but not long since you'd be adding another 100 lbs to the front

    I agree. If I keep it here's my to do list. On top of new 30x9.5/15 studded snows ASAP. Also, goes in for it's 2nd coat of NH Oil Coat(black) Thursday morning. Planning to swap out the SST Pros for a set of Falken Wildpeak AT3W in the Spring. Not doing justice to the SST Pros. Thought I'd be spending a little more time off-road.

    ARB Bumper - $1,000
    Warn Winch - $700-$800
    Rear OX Locker - $1,000-$1,250
    Front Coilovers* - $1,500

    *Might consider heavier rate OME springs instead, but I really like the comfort and capability of variable rate springs like the H&R and the coilovers. Probably just start with a JBA top plate initially and see how the variable rate springs do with the extra weight.

    Hey now... it was either the silver KJ or a Ford Escape... I still think I made the better choice!

    Plus, I blend in... no one notices a silver Liberty.

    If you're going with coilovers might I suggest the JBA system? I ran those with the ARB and it was a sweeeeet ride - amazingly smooth and controlled with the ability to adjust the front up or down depending on my mood. And you'd pay a bit less than $1500 - of course I did buy a set of JBA UCA's when I put the OME/Bilstein spring/shock combo on when I first lifted it. Also had a Smittybilt winch with the synthetic rope, Skid Row engine skid and 4X Guard tranny skid so kinda heavy up front.

    Dang, I would LOVE to have a KJ with 24,000 miles. Bloody Jeep isn't even broken in yet :shrug:

    Thanks for the advice. I appreciate all the help and guidance I've received on this forum.

    Yeah, I was happier than a pig in you know what to find this Jeep. Only had 11,000 on it when I bought it just over a year ago.
