I'm in Milwaukee; I see a LOT of Commanders here.

However, I'll likely not be doing any off-roading until the N23 firmware debacle is cured, as I can't shift into 4LO.

I'd like to a little bit of wheeling; something that won't require 4LO, as the N23 update screwed mine up.

Anything around this area that's doable this time of year?

I haven't looked into a lot of places. I haven't taken the jeep out yet so I don't know how it would do. I have an 08 commander sport 3.7l 4x4

I'm in the same boat, can you describe what the N23 firmware debacle is?

The N23 update was/is a software update for the transmission/transfer case; it was designed to correct a rare fault where the transmission would slip into neutral (disengaging all 4 axle halves, such as were you to tow it).

Unfortunately, the N23 recall update has created software issues where our 4WD LOW no longer works, and we can't shift into neutral to tow our vehicles.

Jeep ignores all requests for a repair, and local shops/Jeep dealerships, claim that the problem is parts related, though they were perfectly fine the day before the recall, and sell you hundreds or even thousands of dollars worth of parts that end up not working as well.

If you haven't had the N23 recall software update done, DON'T DO IT!!!

I'm in the Germantown/Menonomee Falls area. Didn't get the commander out on the trails at all last year, hoping to make up for it this year though. Nightfury- your 3.7L will do just fine, I've seen plenty of them in action when I've wheeled with other forum members. The commander can do a lot without 4Lo, even without it working I don't think I'd let it stop me from going out if a good opportunity came along. It's just hard to find places to go around here. I'm going to try to join a club this year, they usually have access to private land and/or know of good places to go. If anyone has plans for a day or weekend trip let me know, I'm always interested.

Just went to the Jeep Jamboree website, its July 17-19th this year in Crandon. We should try to get a good Commander presence there this year. I've always wanted to go check it out, just never able to find anyone to go with.
