BDS Project KJ Update: Mock Ups
While we’ve been out playing in Moab all week, BDS R&D has been busy working on Project KJ, the 2005 Jeep Liberty (KJ) CRD we’re building to take on the 2013 Ultimate Adventure. If this is the first you’re reading about this build, check out Project KJ Blog for more info on this project and to get up to speed.
To make room for the massive tires we plan to run on this Liberty, we needed to make some room in the fenderwells. Starting with the front the inner fender was trimmed as we prepped a set of JK Rubicon Dana 44 axles with our mock up tires, 40” Maxxis Trepadors in place to get an idea of rides height, and full compression so we can begin designing the suspension for this little CRD powered Jeep. The plan is to keep the Jeep as low as possible, potentially running 3-4” of lift with plenty of droop from a multilink suspension and Fox coilovers. Stay tuned for more in the coming days as the guys continue to prep this KJ.
