I am starting a garage thread since i dont have one.

Here is a photo of my first commander. It was a 2006 3.7 sport.


It took me just about everywhere I wanted to go.

Even when it was stock it was awesome in the snow and on slippery roads!

After i adds a lift and tires and a few mods, it got me even farther in to the winter country side.




And i used it for just about everything. This vehicle sold me on the commander!

Even though I loved the 06, i parted with my former Commander. I really liked it but the money was right and the deals were good....and i got a lot out of my old one so i pulled the trigger on a 2010 Limited. its load OTHER than the DVD player system...which we did not really need.

the trade off was that this was one of the few 2010 limited models with Quadra Drive II. that was my only stipulation...wasnt sure i would like black, but had to have QDII...and since it was not standard on 2010 models...i had to look around since most come with qt2......But no more 3.7L for me. it was a good model, i just was looking for bigger and better.

Got my offroad tires today. I got 5 Maxxis Buckshot mudders in 265/70-17. I put them on the rims from Huey that i wont last year in Colorado.
Once i get the Lift and spacers on I will put them on and post a few pics.

Got the new tires home with out any of them touching the interior.

Now i just have to figure out what kind of a rim to get for the spare tire.....get a steel rim or try to find a matching JK rim.

I wanted to go with Goodyear MTs but there was a special sale and I got these 5 tires for about half the price of 4 Goodyear MTs(kevlar). The tread seems pretty good. They are 8 ply supposedly, so they may be a bit rough riding but i am not worried about that too much.

Well its no longer brand new.Got almost 600 mies on it. Went home for Easter to visit family in Iowa and had to leave the pavement. Did not go offroading, but had to drive on gravel and just getting to my family's farm is a small dose of offroad driving in its self.
I had to take a few "portraits" of the 2010 while it is still stock, since the lift is on the way.

Everthing i ordered was on BACKORDER.
Rocky Rock road 2.25 was 4 weeks behind.
SpiderTrax 1.5 spacers were a few weeks behind.
The spacers finally came in and sat in the garage with the tires and rims till the lift showed up.
Here are the spacers I got.
