    Good Morning!

    I am new to Jeep ownership (2007 Jeep Commander Limited) as well as this forum. We would like to tow a small(er) "couples coach" travel trailer with our Jeep. Our Commander has the 5.7 Hemi and factory tow package, so, if my research is correct, it should tow 7200# max. We are looking at travel trailers with around 4500# dry weight and 6500# max GVWR. My question is regarding max length for safe towing. We found a 2012 Aerolite 25RGBS that is 28' long and meets the weight limits. I am thinking this would be about as long as I would be comfortable towing. We plan on installing an Equal-Izer hitch and a brake control, as well. I am looking for thoughts and opinions on whether this would be a safe and doable combination. Thanks for your input!

    Greeting Mr. 49er
    A quick question on your RR lift. I keep hearing that the OME 2" is better. If you had to do it all over again (+ the extra few hundred $$) would you stick with the RR or go with the OME? I like the idea of the extra 1/4" with the RR and from what I can tell, the OME doesn't guarantee a full 2". Any thoughts? Thanks brother!

    Im a new member,
    Looking to put on a lift, Just went to my store
    they told me they advised against lifting my commander because it is awd.
    I would like a 2in rough country lift. And then new tire before winter
    ether bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2 or bfgoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A
    255/70/R17, and 265/70/R17 with spacers, I don't want to do any body trimming

    My commander is my daily driver. I drive alot for work.

    I really want to lift it. Im worried that I drive 500 highway miles a week for work, will the vibrations be to bad.

    Any help would be amazing.

    I used Krylon spray paint on the bumpers.
