my commander/hit me with your comments

I have an 06 white commander, getting new shocks and struts, what kind should do the best job? I am getting the 2in rc lift, have the 2in wheel spacers, just bought 265/70/17 Falkon wild peak a/t tires and they look nice. I know they are rubbing some so trying to do these mods quick because my job is to drive my jeep all day so please help with advice. Thanks very much. Also any comments on plasti dipping the commander would be great

If you are getting shocks, struts and lift kit you might want to look at the Old Man Emu lift.

if you have the hemi and/or plan to buy steel bumpers, then the OME HD is a good way to go.

i have it and i love it. i had daystar hockey pucks when i first bought it in 06 and changed to the ome hd 3 years ago. big difference, and they level out the front too. i have ome springs front and back, ome struts front and mll for jeep in back. i did however have to change to uca's cuz they rubbed on every driveway really nasty. put on jba uca's and prob fixed. great set up. thats all without spacers and running 265/65/17 falkens which i hate. they barely gave me over 30k miles and are bald. for christmas i just ordered spidertraxx 1.5 spacers, and mll f-150 shocks for the rear and i will be prob be buying 265/70/17, they will add no width but will add an inch in diameter, for an additional .5" of ground clearance.
