Just picked up a '06 limited 5.7 w/QDII following the theft of my TJ I bought new in '03 I bought the Commander because I wanted to build something different than what everyone else has and I am anxious the get to building. I also want to thank all the forum posters for the great info in here - I spent quite a bit of time reading up ahead of time to make sure I would be satisfied with the Commander.

Welcome to the forums!! You'll find that your XK is going to be just as much fun (if not more) than your TJ. Sorry to hear about the theft, that really sucks. There's a few more places you can check out for ideas; Rocky Road Outfitters (Off-Road Equipment for the Serious Enthusiast) and The Steel Armadillo (The Steel Armadillo) and don't forget to check 4wheelparts/4wd and Quadratec. Drop by your local 4WD specialty shops, too. And lastly, don't forget that the XK and WK share the same platform, so you can interchange a great number of "underneath" parts. We're definitely a niche vehicle, but as far as I'm concerned that just makes Commanders more fun...and it's always a good time to pull out the stuck guy in the modded JK who sneered and snickered at your "grocery getter" at the trail head. =)

06 Limited Hemi QDII
CBEngineering Coilover Lift Kit, tie rod ends, U+L rear control arms, RRO front UCAs, adjustable track bar, JKS QD sway bar links, Steel Armadillo diff cover and A/C armor, 4xGuard full Matrix, rock sliders, rear sliders, and belly guard, Wilco Offroad Hitchgate, all riding on ProComp Series 29 17x8.5 wheels with 265/70r17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers

.45ACP...because shooting twice is just, well, silly.

Thanks for the tips, Rick. I had an early ZJ about 15+ years ago and even in near stock form I embarrassed many folks who thought their massively lifted trucks with no flex and open diffs were real off-road machines. I look forward to it again.
