    Ok so I have been trying to find a set of skid out of a local junk yard but no one seems to have any 02- 07 liberty's. But one place has an 08 and a 09 kk, are the skids (engine and transmission) compatible our close enough at least for my 03?

    Gas tank and xfer case is different, tranny and engine are probably close.

    I feel your frustration. I've aslo been searching salvage yards for an engine skid for my '04. No luck here either:shrug:
    I've heard that 05-07 OEM engine skids can be modified to fit, but don't know what is needed. Local dealer gets $65 for them

    $80? Ouch.
    I may be having an engine skid built for my '04. I'm going to get measurements from my buddies' step daughter's Rennie in a few weeks. If I get one made, I'll post the specs for anyone else who wnats to make one.
