Junk Yard Jeep Liberty Keeps Rolling

(Birmingham, AL)

I was on the hunt for a cheap vehicle I could take my daughter off roading in. I found my 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited in a salvage yard with 200,000 miles on it. It ran like garbage, and was nasty inside but I saw potential.

I paid $1500.00 for the vehicle and drove it home. I then began the work to make it a reliable vehicle for me and my daughter. I spent about $600.00 doing basic maintenance, replacing some sensors, replacing window regulators, and getting the front end fixed. I then took it on a 2000 mile road trip and had a blast. My Liberty took good care of me.

Recently I took my Liberty on an off road adventure. I met up with a Wrangler owner and an XJ owner and we hit the trails. They all had bigger tires solid front axles, and more clearance than I did. They decided it was rock climbing day. My Liberty faithfully drove over and through everything the other Jeep owners did. The other Jeep owners were quite impressed. I dragged my Liberty over many a rock that day. The skid plates held up and she never failed me.

I have a Cadillac as well as my Jeep and when I walk outside I always pick the Jeep. What a fun vehicle to drive. Best $1500 I ever spent. I am quite pleased with my purchase.

Editor's Comment: Great story Ernie. I love taking something beat up, old, and/or different, and having fun doing what others do in their expensive rigs.

Nice to hear about your outings after the make over you did on your Liberty. I wish you many more such happy Offroadings for the future. The off-roading experience gets its boost when you have your partner by your side enjoying the experience more than you.
