I don't think it looks anything like the Startech Commander.

I like the inverse color scheme. You need the foglights though.

Show a pic of the sides and back end. Also need the molding below the front bumper.

You also need to invert the wheel color.

Good start on it!!

He asked for opinions. I gave mine.

He asked for a rating, not an opinion. If he likes it, then it's all good, I don't think dumbing down other members on the forum would be useful in gaining contributing members for the vehicle we all love. That's my opinion.

I think it has potential, and the quality paint job lends a nice touch! I think it looks better with the inserts to break up the black, but think it could look best with an OEM chrome or E&G grille. Definitely need to add fog lights, but lose the license plate cover. I have a hard time with blacked out lights on vehicles any color but black, but that's just me. The painted letters look really nice; I think "Jeep" is too short a name for our wide hood, but "Commander" spaced out as wide as the grille could look really neat (admittedly Range Roverish, but if you're already copying brand images...) I really like the concept of ghost graphics, but don't think the Commander is a good fit for flames. Maybe alien/Transformers type lettering or classic BOSS 429 stuff, though. Anyways, I like the prospects and originality. You've really got me thinking about hood text now, though...

PS: what's hiding under the cover to your left (my right)?

everyone else on here is offering constructive criticism. Opinions with the intent to help improve and guide a members mods. Your comments where more malicious in MY OPINION.

gover805, definitely need fog lamps. I am 50/50 on the inserts. I like the direction you are going in.
