Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is a KJ?
Each new unique model of vehicle that Jeep makes is given a two letter model code. For the new Jeep Liberty (starting 2001), that model code is "KJ". Modern Jeeps all have model codes ending in "J". For instance, the latest Jeep Wrangler (97-current) is a TJ and the Jeep Wrangler prior to that (years 1987-1995) are YJs. Cherokees are XJ's while Grand Cherokees are ZJs.
What tires sizes will fit on my Liberty with and without a lift?

Good question! Research is being done right now to answer that and you can be sure that the major aftermarket lift companies are working on their lift kits for the Liberty right now. So far, all I can offer you the following table for Wranglers. Note that Jeep Wrangler YJ and TJ are different. Also, tires sizes between manufacturers are not the same size. Some tires have a thicker lug and are thus a little taller than the indicated size and vice versa.

Don't forget that tire WIDTH also matters. The tires might fit under your rig but may rub when you turn. You might also need to modify the width of your fender flares if your tires extend past the ones you have on there now. Some states require that your tires be covered completely by fender wells or flares to prevent debris from flying.

Is this really a club? How do I join?
This is a virtual club of Jeep Liberty owners and enthusiasts but we don't meet physically anywhere. We will, however, be adding forums and such so that we can all communicate and share information. We feel that since you own a Wrangler, you're already part of the "club." All Jeep Liberty owners/enthusiasts can join and those who would like to be owners can be our guests.
Where can I find more information about Jeep Libertys, in particular?
Check out www.jeepsonly.com. It's intended to be a Yahoo! style directory for information specifically for Jeep owners and/or enthusiasts. You're likely to find much Jeep Liberty information there.
What's New

Just launching this site. Don't worry, although this version is infomative and functional, we're planning on automating some features such as letting you add yourself to the club.

Members

An automated form is coming soon but for now, just email me to ask to be a part of the Jeep Liberty club. Tell me what kind of Jeep you own and either email me a picture or a link to a picture.
