[SIZE=medium]Liberty production ceased some time ago, but the company website, when I checked it today, just replaced its front page Liberty info with that of the upcoming Cherokee. [Oops! Correction: Liberty info as of this edit is still available from a link farther down the front page.][/SIZE]

[SIZE=medium]I know it has its detractors (what doesn’t?) but: I am really enjoying the leather scent, silver-grey woodgrain interior accents, relative quietude and tighter handling of my brand new Jeep Liberty Jet Limited. The blacked-out headlight surrounds make a sexy contrast with the chrome grill. The 9-speaker Infinity sound system with sub-woofer is impressive. And my Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl has a lot of other great stuff too numerous to mention here. [/SIZE]

[SIZE=medium]What a load of features for the money! I’m kind of sad to see Jeep stop making the Liberty. Especially as I grow older, I’m concerned that the new models will not retain this, MY PREFERRED BALANCE of affordability, towing-, relative ride/creature comfort-, cargo-hauling (including reasonable fold-flat rear-compartment 2-person sleeping), and off-road- (though admittedly limited), capability. That’s why I bought my Liberty![/SIZE]

We have a Liberty Jet in the area with the dark bezels and big wheels, and it is definitely a looker... I would like to test-drive one and see if I could add it to the stable as my weekend hauler/tower.

Hey, Bajanbuoy! My wife really loves those dark bezels, too! Liberty max towing shows 5,000 lbs, while what I saw on the Cherokee was 4500 lbs. Also we know that rear cargo is gonna be significantly less with Cherokee. Do the test drive!

The black headlight bezels really make just about every vehicle look better IMO.

(But I may be biased)

Another thing I'm pleased with on my new Liberty is how well it fits into today's smaller parking spaces. It looks longer than it is---maybe it's the tall profile. But, UN4GTBL, I guess it doesn't fit into parking spaces as well as a Caliber; fine looking black bezesls! I have a dark hood deflector like you do; in addition to good looks, I find the deflectors can help with bugs and in reducing stone pitting!

I don't see what the big deal is... It was inevitable that the Liberty would disappear from the website.

Yeah, the Caliber is tiny, and can fit just about anywhere.

The LIberty is nice and tall (which I like) and seems to have lots of cargo room inside. My only space complaint was the driver's footwell.

Thanks! They are a constant work in progress lol. I don't care for the appearance of bug deflectors, but I can't argue with the results. My windshield is not cracked, and my hood is not all chipped.
