|LOST member JSCRASH (Jason) has created a great new front bumper for '02-'04 and '05-'07 model KJs.
|NGK||NGK G-Power Platinum Spark Plug (7100)|
|Inexpensive platinum plug. According to a guy I know who is an excellent, knowledgeable mechanic, NGK is the most consistent manufacturer of spark plugs, and their platinum plugs are hard to beat.
Note: Some retailers (RockAuto.com included) specify Part #7094 for the Jeep Liberty, but NGK lists Part #7100. I'm inclined to believe NGK, but you may want to check.

|4Wheel Drive Hardware||4Wheel Drive Hardware 2" Lift Kit (493301)|
|This lift looks almost identical to Rusty's coil lift, except that it's branded for 4WD Hardware. I'd give it 5 stars, but I only know of one person who has the lift, although he seems to like it just fine.|
|All-J Products||Frankenlift I|
|Provides the best all-around offroad performance of any lift. Excellent choice if you have to have THE best lift, but may be excessive in price for most.
This lift is not actually manufactured by All-J...it is a combination of various parts, largely designed by LOST KJ West members.
The Standard Frankenlift Kit uses Pre-Assembled Rancho 17505 Front Struts, OME927 H/D Front and Rear OME948 H/D Coil Springs, Rear Rancho 17004 Shocks, All J Products Proprietary Poly Parts, Left and Right Daystar Upper Strut Plates, All Hardware and stem cushions needed, Rear Bump Stops.

|Moog Chassis Parts||Moog Lower Ball Joint (K3199)|
|The OEM lower ball joints on all KJs are notorious for failing, sometimes in under 20K miles. The Moog LBJ is serviceable and designed to overcome the inherent design flaws of the OEM joint.

|Rubicon Express||Rubicon Express Superflex LCA (RE3715)|
|"Super-Flex 2 adjustable lower control arms for TJ Wranglers and XJ/MJ/ZJ (front or rear) Cherokees. All Super-Flex Control Arms feature our rebuildable spherical bearing assembly. This assembly features a large 2.25" polymer race that encapsulates a 1.75" hard plated steel bearing. A threaded steel insert allows adjustable preload and easy maintenance. The unit is greasable and extremely quiet due to the non-metallic races. This bearing allows extra flex for off-road prowess, yet does not sacrifice on-road handling or long term durability."
(Also fits the KJ. Click here for a picture of it installed on CA Wally's Camo Edition.)

Be sure to shop around...some auto parts stores charge $50 or more for a pair.
NOTE: SilverStars will NOT last as long as OEM or standard aftermarket halogen bulbs! Most users report a life of 6 months to 2 years.

|Switching from the 3.73 to 4.10 gears after you lift and put bigger tires on can help restore the original acceleration and fuel economy.|
