Just curious how many of you guys that own a Liberty have front tow hooks? I'm going to be fabricating a front hoop/light bar and was thinking of having it tie into the tow hooks mount. Just trying to get an idea of how many out there get tow hooks from the start.
Oh and this isn't going to be a thin wall piece of crap chrom job either. It will be strong.
Tow hooks? Oh, I suppose they would need them so they could get pulled along lightly snow covered streets, since they certainly are not true four wheelers! LOL!----------------------------------------(just kidding a little.)[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
went for a ride in one of these the other day krabysniper, really suprised the he-- out of me.
Not sure wy Jeep went the route of IFS on this one, espesially since this is an XJ replacement but they did....
Four Wheeler mag. rated it right behind te GC...
course look at what they tested, even a jeep with IFS is better than a furd...lol
I think they were just trying to appeal to the yuppies and white collar people, basically all their doing is using the jeep name to sell crap(my opinion). I know from what I've read on this and other boards and in talking to alot of other Jeep owners, they alienated alot of people. I'll just drive the ones I've got till I die even if I have to use bailing wire and bubble gum to hold it together. I will not buy any of the new JUNK being passed off in the Jeep name. Personaly I think they have effectively destroyed another AMERICAN icon. That's my 2 cents.
I'm curious how many people (making negative comments) have actually ever driven one? And how many have driven one off road?
I'm thinking of getting one for my wife to replace the intrepid. I want something not too big, but safe and with 4WD for the occasionally snow and trip to the mountains. I like the interior, my only complaint is the cargo area is a little small. I like the V6 for power and economy even though the majority of my engine experience is with the I6. And get this, I don't mind the IFS. I've looked at it carefully. My father-in-law (who has 30 years in the automotive industry experience) has looked at it up close and carefully. It's pretty beefy. I doubt highly that it would break easily. I also doubt highly that it would break after a lot of abuse. Let's not forget that Jeep is a quality company that puts out quality rigs.
Any Liberty owners with positive things to say? Better yet, any Liberty owners that have taken it out on the trail and enjoyed it?
'95 Cherokee Sport
'00 Wrangler - sold
Liberty after following a Cherokee down a trail.clickyBTW I have test drove one and don't like them, also it was just my opinion, not trying to be a Liberty basher. Just not happy with what the new owners of Jeep are doing to the name. Once again just an opinion.
