Hi folks. I just bought this rig from AEV and it was mentioned that I should start a new thread with pics and info, so here it is.
I've known the guys at AEV for sometime now. I think we first met in 2000 or 2001. I forget. Lol! After I sold my Hemi powered LJ (AEV installed) in January, I started looking around for a new Jeep with my eyes on a new 4DR JK. I had a 4DR in the past and really like them but boy they aren't cheap nowadays. Anyhow, as I was Googling around the 'net, I ran across a Commander and thought to myself, huh, I forgot about those! Lol! Let's see, factory installed 5.7, leather, same basic dimensions at a 4DR JK.... yeah I can do this. I looked around a bunch, saw pics of AEV's rig and finally called Dave to see if he still had it. "Yeah, why? You wanna buy it?" was the response. Ha! Long story short, here it is. I took delivery on 2-25-2014 (my anniversary no less) with 2881 miles on it.
We spent a day going over the rig real quick then loaded it on a trailer and headed for the TDS event in San Diego area. The Jeep did fine with some tire rubbing (expected) but the car trailer blew a couple of tires.
I really don't have much more to add right now. Some basic info is, 5.7 Limited, Superlift 4" lift, custom made fiberglass fender flares and 39.5" Irok's. Other than the front being a bit "springy" (needs new struts), it rides real nice and handles quite well. Oh, and it still has the new car smell.
If anyone has any Q's, just ask! I know I'll have some. Like, what's that black box with the red lens for that's stuck to my windshield?
