    You wouldn't want a bull bar with drings on it anyways unless it was mounted securely like the matrix. Otherwise you will just either end up bending the tubing of the bull bar or it could snap off. Is you want drings up front get a good full bumper or there is the drop hitch and dring mod that works good for about 60 bucks.

    You hit the nail on the head I will say it looks good. BUT for the price and what it is I would save a little extra cash and buy a ARB. And if you have a ton of dumbass drivers around you that don't know how to drive it will pay for its self

    This is from a dumbass driver that thought that he would pass me will crossing the double yellow as I am merging into a left turn lane he had to be towed to the junk yard all I had was that.

    so it looks like this mod goes straight into the frame and you dont need a front hitch? (i was thinking there was welding onto the hitch itself)

    They do make a front hitch for the Liberty, pretty sure Curt makes it. Also that hitch mod isn't as hard as it sounds there is no welding involved.
    [​IMG]
    1 - Buy two hitches, decide what drop you want, the more drop the closer to the center they will sit. I went with a 2" drop.
    2 - Drill second hole with 5/8 drill bit in both hitches. I made a template of where it will connect to frame so I could get an exact hole.
    3 - Get four grade 8 Bolts nuts washers and lock washer
    4 - Install where factory tow hooks go(may have to trim bumper where hitches protrude out depending on year, mine stuck out where the tow hook cut outs are)
    5 - Get D Shackles for the hitches
    6 - Enjoy having two front recovery points :icon_cool:

    Forgot to mention you should have a steel plate inside the frame rail to run the bolts through to strengthen and tie it all together

    I dont see any washers on your setup..
    so, after drilling the holes through the ball mount, i put the bolt through the washer then mount hole, and it will catch the threads of the hole where my tow hooks should be? you mentioned nuts, not sure where those go. and where does this steel plate go?
