I've ridden a K2 Lithium 4.0 for about 3 years now and decided I wanted something better. I found a 2005 Liquid 65 frame in almost mint condition that I couldn't pass up. I purchased or swapped out the following items and put in on my frame:
Fork: Rock Shox Tora 318 Solo Air
Shock: Manitou 3-way Swinger (SPV)
Crank: Raceface Evolve DH
Rotors: 185mm Avid G2
Wheels: WTB with no-name hubs (took them off a Forge Sawback 5xx. I know I need to
Tires: 2.4 Ritchey Motovader
The bike weighs a whopping 37lb but actually climbs better than my 32lb K2. On downhills, I feel way more confident. I assume it's because of better geometry. I tried doing a search on Liquids but haven't found much info. I know it's older technology but I love how this tank handles. That and the fact that the bike cost around 3k when it first came out. Just thought I'd share my new setup!
