So much easier than my 2004.
I have to say of all the KJ things you could make a how-to video about removing the grille on an 05-07 would seem the least necessary
I forget exactly where I saw it but I came across this grille insert that went between the outide casing and the radiator itself. I think it was meant to add more bling bling but its honeycomb pattern would be useful for at lease deflecting some road debris. But then your shiney honeycomb grille thingy would just get all marred up.
I guess you could drive backwards Steve to protect the radiator but thats not the best idea. I have AC in my liberty which puts the condenser in front of the radiator on mine. To protect it from stones and bugs I installed a screen between the grill insert. It seems to work pretty well and is an easy install. If you would like me to send some pictures of what it looks like just email me. A little time and about 6.00 is what your looking at. Later Brad IN 03 liberty
First off does your factory engine temperature gauge show a normal temp reading ( temp needle in the middle) Also when in all honesty have you had your liberty in a real shop to have the cooling system flushed and re-filled with the correct coolant (No I didnt read all the comments to this thread.) You can buy chrome grille trim incerts that restrict the air flow through the grille. That will help.

Im going to have to take another look under the bonnet and check those hoses as I was sure they went into one of the end tanks on the radiator however the text below is taken from the shop manual (3) Remove the front grill (Refer to 23 - BODYEX- TERIORgrille
i dont remember pulling the fan off to replace mine but i replaced the condenser at the same time. we were in a fender bender the ins co paid us then the ac went out no biggie then the radiator had a hairline crack a few months later. i pulled the grille and bumper cover out and did it all from the front as i recall. i also made it a point to bring my wife out when i had it all apart just to see the look on her face when her jeep had no face while she looked at the skeleton she almost cried.......
Well did not get a bull bar soon enough. On trip 600 miles from home hit deer on I-90 in Minnesota take out radiator everything in that open hole in front. Rental car back home car trailer next day to get liberty will need all front parts radiator trans cooler lights hood etc. Going to replace all with the ARB bull bar for KJ. Suggest you do the same before it happens to you. Easily spent over what
Dude do you live in a Starship Troopers planet What kind of bugs are there in your area... Kidding aside I have seen people sliding cardboard in front of the grille but another set uf windows screens could help as well..
Obviously not. It sounds scary. They are also selling those shiny grille inserts that are tighter than the other ones check them on ebay they look like someone just cut them and ship them to you doesnt look touched up much but they may serve the purpose.
Its under the battery tray newer relays have a big heat sink on them so possibly look different from the one fitted at the moment. Easiest way I found was to take off the grille battery and tray and then you can even easily remove the headlamp assy to give you more room.
radiator. It is a smaller vertical cooler in front of the radiator. I would suggest the factory 7-pin wiring harness. Makes it easy to install a brake controller if you determine you need it in the future (I would personally but thats your call. Its not the going but the slowing when towing...) Go to this page and scroll down to the 7-pin harness. Below it is the supplemental harness. If your jeep

Its a 2005 or 2006.
Sorry to see that hope it doesnt affect her insurance much - I worry about that more than a jeep. If going the self-repair route instead of a full claim and body shop estimates there are lots of liberty folks here that might chime in with help. Liberties are usually pretty sturdy and as long as no airbag deployment shouldnt be too awful... looks like the plastic fascia pieces are toast at least one
httpwww.jeepforum.comforumf28possible-air-conditioning-problem-wont-cool-off-816032 FYI When you turn on the AC the fan needs to kick on and pull cool air over the condensor. This is located right behind your grille and looks like a radiator. If the fan is not working the AC will still cool when you are driving because air is being forced through the condensor. When you stop at a light the condensor has no air and the AC gets hot. Good Luck.

with the crossmember contact can be eliminated. 1990s 1996 The cherokee is of monocoque construction - no separate chassis - which permits a much lower car-like stance. The current cherokee shape dates from 1979 with an update in 1984. In 1997 the cherokee was revised getting a slightly more rounded shape and revised interior. The VM 2.5L turbo charged diesel was also offered in Australia. jeep
