Very nice. I'm not sure I like that spare tire tank - are you sure it can hold the weight of a full tank - but it looks beautiful. Hope you prove me wrong.

Any closeups of the engine work?

I do not open the door when more than 1/2 full. But you would be suprised how much the spare tire wieght is. The mount for the spare was more than the empty spare tire tank! Think of it as the spare tire with a two bike bike rack mounted to the spare tire and two bikes mounted on that. This is a common accessary for the Libby.

I will work on a new close up picture(s).

Engine pictures with a view of the heater. You can see the heater hose attaches in front on top of the engine.

Nice work. You fit everything in there - it's a tight engine compartment.

Update on the Liberty is that it is running great! And it really is a good grease vehicle. There are very few 4 wheel drive vehicles that are diesel, drive down the highway nice, are easy to park, and carry 5 people and stuff. The spare tire tank is working out well. We limit opening it when full and close it carefully. But it really is not an issue at all. We took five people on a 200 mile trip with suitcases in the back. The spare tire tank seems to work great.
But the truck does not have as much zip went there is 24 gallons of grease in the rear tank plus 5 under the vehicle 5 bags in the back and 5 people in the seats.
I changed the oil in the engine after about 1000 miles on grease (4000 miles on the oil) and it looked like used diesel engine oil. I also filled the diesel tank and was averaging 95 miles for every gallon of diesel fuel which was low because 1/4 of the usage was before the conversion. After two thousand miles I filled the diesel tank again and got 137 miles for every gallon of diesel purchased. After 3000 miles which included 2 trips of 200 miles and a few days of driving to work and back it was right at the 140 mpgodp. At the end of the month I am going to change the veg oil filter if it does not die before that just to be safe.

Default modifications are required on the CRD

I did a few mods that were recommended on the lostjeep.com website. I think they go a long way in the conversion of a Liberty CRD to grease. The most obvious one is to unplug the electric connector on top of the air filter. 2nd is to clean the sensor on the back right of the intake manifold. 3rd is a so called Elephant Hose modification. Where the engine venting CCV is rerouted. In all these took about 20 minutes and $20 in part for hose and clamps but was easy to do and makes a huge diffence in the running of the vehicle except that the Check engine light is always on.

This liberty now has 9000 miles on grease without a problem, it runs better now than when I purchased it.

Default A great grease vehicle

I have probably mentioned this. But this Jeep Liberty is a great great vehicle. My 1995 Dodge CTD sucked next to this thing. I know the Dodge was old but I was fixing things all the time.

I just drove the Jeep to NC from Florida and carried all of my own grease on a cargo carrier that is mounted to the reciever hitch. I loaded 60 gallons of grease (500 pounds give or take a little.) Never even noticed it was there. Made if 2440 miles on that tank of diesel 1800 miles was the trip. And I used 10 gallons of diesel. That Jeep rides nice at 75-80 mph. I must have been getting 25-28 mpg also because I calculated for 20 mpg and I should have run out. But I only used 65-75 gallons of grease.
