We had an '05 Liberty Limited that we bought used. Was fully loaded. Was a good jeep, had an NV242 t-case, so was great in snow. Fuel economy was not great. We got around 14 up here in the mountains for daily driving, but go 21-22 out on the freeway.

I had an 06 KJ Renegade 6 speed. Loved that thing. It was a great daily driver and still really good offroad. Upgraded to some 245/70R16 BFG AT's and she'd go anywhere. Tons of fun, enjoy!

Great little Jeeps! I like the later boxy style a little better but that's minor. Typical Jeep not good mileage but good practicality. Have fun!
