Welcome to the site
What are your plans for your ride ?
Welcome to the forums as well.
What color is it? Got a photo of your 06 Renegade?
Can I borrow your Jeep this weekend?
The Liberty is my daily driver so not looking to go too nuts. 2 1/2 spacer lift and a little larger tires for now. It needs a clock spring and I'm looking to do armor as she doesn't have any. I want to get a gas tank skid first.
No you can't borrow it ;-)
It's a goldish color and I can't load a picture as the "file is too large"
Welcome, Spacers are no good. Take some time and do some reading on this site. If you want cheap, sure Spacers, but you get what you pay for.
Be carefull installing a new clockspring. The factory service manual has an error advising one extra turn before installation, don't do that. Just point the wheels straight ahead and center the clockspring by gently counting turns.
If you go spacer lift you will end up with lots of worn out front suspension parts in no time
Do it right the first time and be done
Then if going much larger than a 30 inch tire, going to 4.10 gearing helps a ton as far as power and mileage
engine, transmission first skids first , they are mostly what hits first thing
If you want a gas tank skid get a Kilby, stocker are just thin metal
Is Kilby still around?
Just installed a Skid Row Off Road Gas Tank Skid Plate couple of weeks ago for a customer Part number - JP-4002, I think was the number
It was not a one piece like a Kilby but was bolt together and strong, much better than stock
I run a Skid row engine and transmission skid on one of mine ( the 03 ) they are really good IMO
I am even on or was at one time on their fakebook page when I pictured their engine skid with JBAs front bumper skid bolted together
Your other skid plates ( engine, transmission etc are much more important than the gas tank one
