I am a tj driver and will never change. My wife has a 12 liberty and is thinking about getting a jk. I just want to know if they handle the same .
I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that all JKs are coming with d44 rears now.khende said:I have an 09 Liberty and a 89 YJ trail jeep. I love both of them. The Liberty rides well but with the trail package is still very trail worthy. It basically has the same axles set up as a JK, dana 30 and 35 but does not have the ground clearance. That said I have driven over 8" logs in the snow with absolutely no problems. I have driven in the snow extensively with it and have never had chains on. Three weeks ago I was in Clavares County trout fishing and I was driving on forest serives roads with the Liberty in the snow, mud and rocks and made every road I drove. There were a couple of times I spun one wheel or another but over all I had a ball. While not a Wrangler a trail rated Liberty will do more than one would think.
