MaineMan's Garage

Hey Guys. I bought my Commander in December of 2010 and the mods started right off the bat, I just never got around to starting a garage. I took a few pictures of the Jeep during its transformation, but most of them are on my other computer. I will upload them in the near future, but for now, here's a pic of how my rig currently looks. I had always wanted to completely black out a vehicle, but never ended up buying a black vehicle until now. Let me know if you have any questions. My future mods include cross rails, intake, exhaust, in-dash dvd player and headrest tv's. Once I get the interior done, I may add a bigger lift/tire combo, but I'm satisfied with the exterior for now.

08Commander - I did keep the stock lugs. The v-tec center caps stick out far enough so ou can hardly see the silver lugs, unless you are looking for them.

Yioryosino - thank you, very much.

Well...it's been a few months since I have posted anything to my garage, so here it goes.

Since my last post, I have added the factory cross rails, Aries brush guard, and mopar tail light guards. I was very impressed with the construction and fit of the brush guard and tail light guards. I prefer the mopar tail light guards to any other brand I saw due to how much more flush they sit on the tail light. They don't look as "universal" to me.

I have ordered some 130w KC Daystar driving lights with stone guards to mount on the brush guard. They should arrive next week and will go on over the weekend.

Before and after photos below. Let me know what you think...
