    Last Saturday I put AVS vent shades on and new rear window lift supports. Did what I was supposed to do on Sunday, got up Monday and went trout fishing no luck. Got a brand new fuel tank skid plate in today. Will put it on this Saturday if it warms up a little. Have a new roof rack and two Hella 500FF's to put on the weekend after that. Mom's 91 and been sick so I haven't been able to get far from home since New Years.

    Added PS fluid again.
    Can't track down where it is leaking and haven't had any time to track it down. And with frigid temps and an unheated garage, it's not gonna be any fun looking tomorrow.:icon_mad:

    Made some L-pads a week ago and finally installed them. Regular component tweeters are not good for the ears installed in the dash. I hoped to pull them down about 2 db.

    Climbed a mountain with it! I have to say I am continually impressed by the Liberty. I got through rock climbing/mud/snow situations I never would have thought it could do. I'm DEFINITELY glad I bought those recovery points though- I had to get winched back onto the trail when I fell off once due to snow. Had I put on chains earlier, it probably wouldn't have been necessary though.

    Unfortunately, I will be selling the Liberty soon- I have a new project vehicle, a newer XTerra that is the Jeep's replacement (can't afford to keep both as much as I'd like to.) I will miss the Liberty, but I plan to find her a good home where she will be used to the full extent of her capability.

    I put my Jeep up for sale on THIS THREAD. (Click link)

    Selling the venerable Liberty makes me a little sad, but I've got a new project vehicle and can't afford to keep both.

    Regeared to 4.10's.
    Was going to wait till spring but the lift has settled and is due for another alignment.

    Just noticed also that the 3/8 clevis lift(no nuts) has slipped back to it's original position,going to have to stick the nuts in I guess.
    My clevis pinch bolt is only an [email protected]

    Saw some weeping tears of ATF from the jeep in -40C, trans cooler lines have started their semi annual drips. Power steering cooler hoses are having a rough go and are backing off their stops on the line in.

    Even my odyssey battery is having a rough go and had engine warning light turn on the way to work today.

    Square tires every morning for the last month FTL.

    If you've got a scrap yard nearby try for a clevis off a different year that isn't 06 or 07. The upper bolt is larger, but I'm sure you already know that.

    I'm told the KK's clevis also fits, no idea on bolt size. I'm am pretty sure the conduit nuts won't carry the weight of your jeep.

    Congrats on the 4.10's. When they did the pinion reset what tire size did they input for your setup?

    no liberty's in salvage yards in these parts.
    I'll just put the conduit nuts in and that should do.
    It's not going to pull out,just have to stop it from creeping down.
    I was expecting to have to do it after it settled some.
    It's only the drivers side anyway.(drivers side droop)
    No reset was done.
    Actually my speedo is/was 7-8km off(under speed,with 3.73 and 235's),when I put the 245/75/16's on it helped a bit and with this regear it feels even closer to actual.
    I have to test it in the next day or two.

    The conduit nuts don't carry any weight, they just act as "measuring spacers." The clevis clamp will hold the weight.

    I have never had a clevis slip down on all that I've done, tighten them up tight and they'll be good

    also got some 3X3 spot beam LEDs in today to test out and see if I like them
    threw them on the spare Matrix just to see how they look

    They are torqued to spec 45ft#.
    06-07 have a smaller clamp bolt,m10.

    This is the result of trying to put it at 100ft#.the torque for the larger bolt.
