Jeep uses a lot of great American names like the Patriot and the Liberty. The Liberty first started in 2002 and was a slimmed down SUV model that kind of got a bad rap by true off-roaders. But for some reason it maintained a loyal following for SUV owners who wanted a small but capable SUV with the Jeep name on it.
The first generation Liberty went from 2002-2007 as the KJ model and the from second generation models from 2008 to 2012 for the KK model. It has been replaced by the new Cherokee KL and other newer models. So read on about the Jeep Liberty KJ and KK 2002-2012 models.
