Living In An Apartment With A Motorcycle

Living In An Apartment With A Motorcycle There are more problems than not having a garage. Not everyone enjoys the luxury of a large garage in which to keep and work on multiple bikes. If you live in an apartment, chances are your bike doesn't get any shelter from the elements at all. Some complexes even make it difficult for you to own a motorcycle at all. Here are some ways to get around the restrictions property owners may place on those of us who don't own our own home.

The Jeep Liberty ended production in 2012, and models with the Sky Slider option no longer have parts available to fix the roof if it fails. The Liberty bowed from the Jeep lineup in 2012, but a new report from NBC 6 in Miami says owners can’t even fix the common problem anymore.

"The SkySlider roof on our 2008 Jeep Liberty 4x4 is very noisy at driving speeds or on windy days and as many other owners with this option have stated, the roof does not close all the way," said The Jeeps are , of course, out of warranty by now so it's unlikely there'll be any help from the manufacturer.

The fabric roof is prone to failure and no parts are available to fix it.

There was a cool option for the Jeep Liberty back in the day called the Sky Slider roof. In short, it was a big fabric folding roof that operated like a ginormous powered sunroof. It was awesome when it worked, but over time it developed a reputation for being a bit finicky with regards to wind noise, leaks, and outright failures. The Liberty bowed from the Jeep lineup in 2012, but a new report from NBC 6 in Miami says owners can’t even fix the common problem anymore. Apparently, replacement parts are no longer available.

Here's the Best $1,000 You Can Spend When You Buy a Jeep Wrangler

Here's the Best $1,000 You Can Spend When You Buy a Jeep Wrangler The new turbo four-cylinder is the best Wrangler powerplant yet. I'm rolling toward the chain-control checkpoint outside Truckee, Cali., snow falling hard, when the Toyota Highlander arcs into my peripheral vision. It's a first-gen model, painted in that noncommittal gold-beige that adorns so many of them, and it's having what's known as a tank-slapper: The driver overcorrected a skid, and now the rear end is coming around back the other way. It's coming right at the driver's side rear door of the car I'm driving, a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

The report doesn’t specifically identify by name which parts are now obsolete, but a spokesperson from Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles allegedly confirmed with the news station that part number 68055315AF was no longer available. A quick search at factorychryslerparts.com shows that part number is for is the entire sliding roof frame and the roof itself. The spokesperson also reportedly said the supplier that originally produced the part is no longer in business. Yikes.

It gets worse, because there apparently aren’t any aftermarket repair options either. So basically, if you own a Jeep Liberty with the fabric Sky Slider roof and something major happens to it, you now own an SUV that has no roof. That might be neat for an older purpose-built Wrangler with a weatherproof interior, but we don’t see the kids enjoying trips to school getting pelted by rain or snow in the back of a roofless Liberty.

2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee review: An SUV with something for everyone

2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee review: An SUV with something for everyone Jeep's popular midsize SUV offers a little something for everyone.

I own a 2011 Jeep Liberty which I love. I always wanted a Jeep , thanks to my fiance who owns an awesome Wrangler, but should not have gotten one with the glider/ slider roof or whatever it is called.

My 2008 Jeep Liberty with the sky slider jumped the track (actually it is a cable issue) over a I also contacted the DOT about the safety issues but as I've stated before was just out of options and I just purchased a 2012 Jeep Liberty with the skyslider roof . I have been scouring the internet to see how

It’s not uncommon for manufacturers to stop producing replacement parts for vehicles after a relatively short amount of time. At this point, the newest Jeep Liberty is seven years old, but in a world where the average age of used cars on the road is 11 years, that’s actually on the young side. Considering the problems that existed with the option while the Liberty was in production – not to mention the significance of having an actual roof on your daily-driver SUV – it’s a bit surprising to learn there are no repair options available.

Motor1.com has reached out to FCA for additional information and confirmation of this report. We will certainly provide an update if new details are available.

An Aftermarket Exhaust Makes the Trackhawk Sound Brutal.
Jeep's 707-horsepower SUV gets even meaner. The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is arguably the best-sounding road-legal Jeep ever made. Of course, there's always room for improvement. Thankfully there's no shortage of aftermarket support. A company called Stainless Works in Streetsboro, Ohio, designed a full free-flowing exhaust system specifically for the Hellcat-engine SUV, all the way from the headers down to the mufflers. Somehow, it makes that supercharged V-8 sound even better than before. If you liked the noise the Trackhawk made from the factory, you're going to love this.
