here are some pros and cons and what I have found.
Amazing off road in 4 low
I can drive over curbs and they feel like speed bumps
much softer ride
Jeep bogs bad in 4 high when slipage is present almost worthless to not be in 4 low all the time. Gears are needed bad or a better tranny nag1 cough*
People think it is a hummer or don't know what the hell it is.
Speedo is way off, about 7-10 mph and Diablosport has not finished an 06 profile yet but I have my predator waiting.
as it turns out at full flex alot of cutting was needed both front and rear, most people are not going to want to do what I had to do to fit 34"
I guess this is a forum for opinions and experiences, so here's mine.
You did what most people would not want to do, cut the wheel well up and made it work, so kudo's on that.
As to your cons, all were predictable without a trial or are immaterial.
1. You put on tires with a 15% larger circumference so for transmission and gearing, you did the same as putting a higher gear ratio in the final drive. So yah, it would seem that Chrysler should have put lower gearing in their vehicle.... oh yah, they did, you changed it.
2. People think it is a hummer ... who cares, happens to other Commander owners sometimes too.
3. Your speedo is off by 15%, not 7-10 mph.
4. Your right, most people do not want to cut their fender wells out that much. But a few are willing.
But more to the point, you did a good job, something I personally was doubtful of you pulling off, so congrats.
Now get some 4.10 gears or similar, and clean up the fender wells and you'll really have something there.
