Maybe the Japanese tuner should focus on offroaders from now on.
Liberty Walk. Just saying those two words in that order is enough to peeve off many automotive enthusiasts. See, the Japanese tuner has a bad history of regularly cutting up and tinkering with cars. The results are rarely nice to look at, but Liberty Walk flips the bird at your feelings and will even take its grinder to classic Ferraris. Fortunately, the tuner's latest build is not the sacrilegious vandalism of a classic but rather a readily available vehicle where damage is almost par for the course if it's used for its intended purpose. We're talking, of course, about the off-roading legend that is the Jeep Wrangler.
Fortunately, this build seems to retain a semblance of practicality and hasn't seen the suspension comprehensively rebuilt for the SUV to sit on the floor as so many of Liberty Walk's builds do. Instead, it's been made to look like the ultimate adventure vehicle, so long as you like having holes in your car.
Immediately, you get the feeling that this Wrangler was designed in the same studio as The Dark Knight's Tumbler. But unlike Batman's mode of transportation, the armor plating you see here is fake and has been fashioned from plastic. Still, with additional LED spotlights above the narrowed windscreen, you could argue that these pieces have some use.
A steel bumper with an LED light bar has also been fitted, along with a redesigned front fascia for an angrier look. The doors are replaced with aftermarket items that definitely won't keep the cold out, while the roof has been removed and partially replaced with netting. New side steps are fitted too, but the biggest change to the character of the car comes arguably from the wheel setup. 22-inch Comforser CF3000 mud tires are wrapped around the oversized wheels, and to make them fit relatively well, widened arches fashioned from carbon fiber are fitted too. It's a crazy look, but on a vehicle like this, we don't mind too much.
Want to do the same to your Wrangler? Complete price lists haven't been provided as yet, but the new arches and the front grille alone will set you back $3,154 and $880 respectively.
