Opinion needed
Hey guys i need some opinions on what to do. My friend is getting rid of his 2005 jeep liberty crd 78k and i can get it for 10,300.00. That also means i will have to get rid of my wj. Ive always wanted a diesel jeep but im not sure if it will be a right move. I can sell my wj for 5,000 and put out another 5300 from my pocket. He has been averaging 35-42 mpg with the green diesel mod but other then that its all stock. What do you guys think?

Re: Opinion needed
Depends on what you plan on doing with the Liberty if you decide to get it. Will it be your new toy, you gonna pay the money and mod it or leave it as it is if you get it, or look into getting something else for less money and have the money left over to mod it.

Re: Opinion needed
That's a hard question for me to answer. A Liberty CRD is quite enticing, especially since it averages double the WJ's MPG. With a few mods on a Libby, they can do a lot more than many think. Ultimately, I would probably keep the WJ, but that's me.

Re: Opinion needed
I actually like the first generation Libby way better than the new one. Just never liked the 3.7 because they run like crap and suck gas worse than a v8. With the crd it ought to be a lot of fun if you don't mind losing some space.

My buddy's wife had a liberty... within 8 months it was at the dealer 3 times getting the window regulator replaced... she no longer has that car for a reason..

Re: Opinion needed
I discussed it with my wife and the way i look at it is my wj is already modded to my liking and has no problems/leaks just regular maintance so instead of using another 5k to buy the liberty. we are going to look into other toys we can get more use out of we are thinking ethier some atvs, jet skis, or maybe a harley

Re: Opinion needed
Glad to hear you're keeping the WJ! There's nothing quite like a well-modded WJ.
