    I've been seeing and hearing a lot of bad things about the Jeep Liberty. I guess they just aren't made for offroad travel anymore.

    Here's a little clip of a Liberty wheeling ... or breaking .... it really didn't make it very far.

    It looked to me like he bottomed out and broke the T-case when his front wheels crested the hill. They sure are a lousy replacement for the cherokee. My ex-girlfriend got one after her Ford Bronco got wrecked (what a waste). Liberty's fall into the cute-ute category, its an oversized station wagon.

    Come to think of Chevy made station wagon's with big blocks in them back in the day :)

    Not the Jeeps fault. High center any Cheby truck on an np208/241 with that kind of force and you'll get the same result. No they are not rock buggies, but in their own environment with a good driver, you could have fun in a KJ>

    Looks like I would have made that hill in 2wd.:haha:


    Oh, and I have a 208 t-case with a skid, and I have high-centered it many times pretty hard on it on pure rocks, and have never had that happen. Looks like just small/weak components to me....
