Transmission Cooler Installation - 2005 Jeep Liberty

Today on our 2005 Jeep Liberty we're going to review an install of the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit, part number D13502. Here's what our cooler will look like once it's installed. These coolers are typically installed when hauling heavy loads, or possibly even towing a heavy load, to keep the transmission temperature down to prevent the excessive heat-related transmission failures. The cooler itself is approximately 11" long, and 7" tall. It's about 1" thick, so it's compact enough that it'll fit here behind the manufacturer's grill in the air flow for optimum cooling. One of the really nice features about this cooler is it can be an add-on to a system that already has a manufacturer's cooler, or added to a system that doesn't have a cooler for additional protection for your transmission. Making it an ideal use, as in this application, for an add-on system.

Flip it over, remove the cap off the end by swiveling out, pressing in the little tab there, and pulling out. Next take your foot pack, remove the end cap with the tool built into it.

WeatherTech 2nd Row Rear Floor Mat Review - 2005 Jeep Liberty

Today on our 2005 Jeep Liberty, we're going to review an install, the WeatherTech 2nd Row Custom Floor Liner, part number WT460322 gray in color. This application is also available in black part number WT440322 or tan part number WT450322. To begin our install, we need to remove the old or manufacturer's floor mat. As we can see, the floor mat has been shifted around and the dirt is falling right off of it. We will go ahead and remove the floor mat on both sides. With the old mats out of the way we're ready to install the new WeatherTech liner.



WeatherTech Front Floor Mats Review - 2005 Jeep Liberty

Today on our 2005 Jeep Liberty, we're going to review and install the WeatherTech Custom Fit Auto Floor Liner, part number WT460321, gray in color. This application is also available in tan, part number WT450321, or black, part number WT440321. To begin our install, we first need to remove the older manufacturer's floor mat. As we remove the floor mat, we'll also take note of all the dirt and debris that's fallen off the floor mat, and we really could have benefited for a little more protection of our carpeting. Now let's go ahead and install the new WeatherTech liner. The liner itself is made of a high-density advanced material, so it can be molded to fit the shape and contour of the vehicle, while still being pliable enough to get in and out of the vehicle easily. Now with our liner in place, we can see the custom molding going over the manufacturer's attachment point, coverage nicely up to the threshold, going down below our hood release latch, but then extending up underneath both the gas and brake pedal, with additional coverage for the driver's side footrest.

Now once you get it up on your rack you'll place in your spacers before you'll place any of the other fasteners on, but we put our spacer on. That way we wouldn't have to contort the rack after we tighten down the other sides.

Now here's what our base plate is going to look like once it's installed. Currently, our base plate is set up not to be used, as we have the cups that are installed into the base plate openings. We can remove the cup and install the removable tab or arm. The tab will slide into the opening, rotate, push in, which you'll notice, pushes out on the pin that's spring loaded, will rotate, and it locks into position, holding the removable arm or tab into the base plate.

Jeep Liberty Questions

  • The replacement size for the A78x13ST original tire is the ST175/80-13. The overall diameter is 24.1 inches and the overall width is 7 inches. You might want to measure on your trailer to make sure you have the clearance for the ST175/80-13 size. The Loadstar ST175/80D13 Bias Trailer Tire with 13 inch White Wheel, # AM3S030, you have referenced is a bias tire on a 13 X 4-1/2 white wheel. The tire is a Load Range B, which means it is a 4-ply rated and has a maximum load of 1,100...

  • I believe I can help you. The rim size you have does not seem odd. We have numerous rims with the 4 on 4 bolt pattern for 13 inch tires. The center hole or pilot diameter is smaller than the ones on the wheels we carry. The only reason this would be a factor is if the wheels center on the hub using the pilot hole OR if the axle diameter is larger than the pilot hole. If the wheel is centered on the hub using the lug nuts, then having a larger pilot diameter is not a problem. In...

  • It sounds like you may need to install a fuse in the fuse block under the hood on your 2002 Jeep Liberty to get the 12 volt power circuit at the OEM 7-Way connector to work. But the first thing I would do is check the bulb just to be sure it is not bad, then check to see if the interior trailer light is connected to the running light circuit. Turn on the running lights and if there is a switch in the trailer make sure it is on. If the light does not light, then you can check the...

  • Pulling cars onto a trailer will undoubtedly require pulling the vehicle up an incline, which will add extra resistance to the equation. If you are pulling a rolling load, not dragging the car and no flat tires, up just a slight incline like a 3 degree slope the weight capacity of the winch can be multiplied by 6.67 times, see hand winch article, Winching on an Incline, which I have linked for you to review. A steeper incline causes more resistance and reduces the rolling load...

  • The Tow Ready Vehicle To Vehicle Taillight Converter, # 118158, you have referenced will not be needed since you will be staying with a 3-wire system (separate stop and tail lights)on both of your vehicles. The converter is only needed if you had a 2-wire system (combined stop and tail lights) on the towing vehicle and a 3-wire system on the vehicle being towed. I would recommend using a diode system to wire your vehicle because the diodes will prevent feedback from going from...

  • Do you want to bypass the converter because the RV uses separate turn signals and brakes lights like the 2012 Jeep Liberty or for some other purpose? The converter box in a tow bar wiring harness such as # HM56204 takes the separate turn signals and brake lights used by the Jeep and combines them. It also offers circuit protection so bypassing it would not be a good idea. If you want the Jeep turn signals and brake lights to be separate you would need to use the 6 diode kit...

  • We have several options for your 2007 Jeep Liberty. The easiest and best route to go with is to purchase a rack that has a long enough extension to clear your rear mounted wheel and tire combination. To do this you will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on your receiver hitch to the farthest out part of your rear wheel or tire. Once you have this measurement you can select a bike rack with enough clearance to clear the spare tire. We have several models...

  • Using a hitch extender is safe as long as you stay within the limits specified of 50 percent of the hitch and vehicle load capacity, and 350 lb tongue weight capacity of part # HE06. The other option to provide additional clearance from your spare tire would be to use a longer ball mount. For this, I would recommend Hidden Hitch Ball Mount, part # 80232, which places the center of the hitch ball 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole. If your ball mount requires a...

  • According to Roadmaster the StowMaster series of Tow Bars, like RoadMaster StowMaster Car-Mounted Tow Bar, # RM-501, are compatible with the EZ style of base plates like # 521434-1 (installation details linked below) that you have referenced. I have included a link to the installation details and a video review of this tow bar below.

  • To flat tow a vehicle, you would need a tow bar, base plates that mount to the vehicle and provide an attachment point for the tow bar, safety cables, a lighting solution and a supplemental braking system. The base plates I would recommend for your 2003 Jeep Liberty would be the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, part # BX1119. This kit has hidden reinforcements and the removable arm brackets that provide a clean, unobtrusive look when the Jeep is not being towed. This kit will work on...

  • Both the Roadmaster and Blue Ox flat towing setups are excellent choices that would work well on your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. In my personal experience with both systems I prefer the Blue Ox setups. Our installers feel the same way. The removable portions of the base plate kits are a bit easier to take off, and the tow bars seem to operate smoother. For a tow bar I would highly recommend the Blue Ox Aventa LX part # BX7445. This tow bar is the easiest to connect and disconnect...

  • You will first want to determine if it is acceptable to flat-tow your Jeep. From the research I found, some of the 4-wheel drive Jeep Liberty models may need additional parts or may not be able to be flat-towed. You will want to consult your Jeep dealer or vehicle owners manual to make sure it is acceptable to flat-tow your Jeep. If you find that it is safe to flat-tow your Jeep, there is a way to use your 1999 Ford F-350 with the camper in the truck bed to flat-tow, but you...

  • You are correct that any of the factory wiring will be protected by fuses and/or circuit breakers. Your vehicle may have a connection under the dash but in our experience the wiring to power the brake controller is not completed. If you check under the dash and can find the mating connector, see photo, to the Tekonsha Wire Replacement for Dodge Vehicles, item # 3020-P, you can test this connection with a Circuit tester, item # 3808 if needed, If the connector has proper function,...

  • If your 2005 Jeep Liberty has a factory tow package, you could use either the Hopkins harness, # 42475, or the Tow Ready harness, # 118381. The vehicles with a tow package have a factory connector made to add a wiring harness. Both products will perform equally as well. But if your Liberty did not come with a tow package, you will need to use Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118524. This is a circuit protected powered converter which is required to protect the sensitive...

  • If your Liberty was equipped with the tow package, it will have the 7-way trailer connector on the rear of the vehicle. Part # 118381 would plug inline with the wiring harness leading to the 7-way. Since you do not have the factory hitch, you probably do not have the tow package and would want to use part # 118554. Installation is pretty simple. Access the rear of the tail light assemblies, plug the connectors inline with the existing connections behind the tail lights, and...

  • I verified with my contact at Hopkins that the Hopkins Plug-in Wiring Harness, # 42475, will work on your 2004 Jeep Liberty if it did not come with a tow package. He also stated that the factory connection is typically on the passenger side, but it may be possible that the manufacturer routed the connection to the driver side. I would recommend checking the passenger side for a connector before attempting to connect it to the connector on the driver side. One thing that...

  • The Blue Ox Patriot Brake Controller # BRK2012 will fit within your 2012 Jeep Liberty Jet Edition. It features a wireless radio frequency remote control that mounts in the cab of your tow vehicle and plugs into a 12-volt outlet. The brake system mounts in the towed car in the floor of the front seat and also plugs into a 12-volt outlet. I have included a link to the installation instructions for this item. To properly flat tow your vehicle, you will need a tow bar, base plates,...

  • I produced a short video and added dimensions to a photo for you so that you could measure and be sure the CURT Multi-Ball Adjustable Ball Mount, # D900, would work on your 2005 Jeep Liberty with rear mounted spare tire. The most critical measurements are going to be measurement A and E, see photo. As long as the distance out from the center of your hitch pin hole, 7 inches, and distance up to the top of the ball from the inside top of the receiver, 6-3/4 inches, will clear...

You will want to measure on your hitch from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the furthest rearward portion of the spare tire. This measurement will determine the clearance needed for a hitch bike rack to fit. For the SportRack bike rack to fit, the measurement you took on your Jeep will...
