The supercharger kit was developed specifically for the V6 Liberty and came courtesy of Jim Bell, the leader of the pack around the Kenne Bell facility (Rancho Cucamonga, California). Power is increased to 275 hp via an outfit that consists of a twin-screw Autorotor supercharger, a Kenne Bell Optimizer II engine management system, a Kenne Bell Boost-A-Pump, a Kenne Bell Ram Air kit, and all related mounting hardware. The optimizer recalibrates fuel and spark curves and has a built-in detonation protector, while the Boost-A-Pump increases fuel delivery to better deal with the increased force of the supercharger. The result of all of this bolt-on equipment is smooth, instant full boost from 2,000 rpm and up. Testing of the Liberty Patriot saw a full second taken off the 0-60 times, 1.5-second reduction in 1/4 times, and an increase of 8 mph through the traps. Drive it normally and there's no loss in fuel mileage.
To complete the image of this one-of-a-kind Jeep, a number of modifications were performed on the rig, including a front skid plate by Body Armor, Go Rhino! tubular side steps, PIAA lighting, White Night rear lighting, Katzkin custom leather seating, and Intrax Custom Plus Height springs. Rolling stock consists of Goodyear Wrangler MT/R rubber (LT245/75R16) wrapped over Konig NR-N alloy wheels (16x8), slightly increasing the stock ground clearance of 9.6 inches.
With more than 10,000 hard-core Jeep enthusiasts, the Patriot Liberty debuted at "Camp Jeep" (in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia) to a very positive response. Interestingly enough, both of the concept vehicles (Dakar and Jeepster) that had originally sparked the interest to build the Liberty were displayed at Camp Jeep as well, showing the off-road-loving group how (sometimes!) the whole prototype process works.
