Commandoooo's Garage

This is my second "go round" with a Commander. My avatar is of my first commander, we bought two at the same time. I traded mine for a New Land Cruiser, which my wife has taken a liken to, sooooo, I now have her commander. Of course, you cant drive a stock commander (you really can, but thats what I told her, shhhhh !!)

I have placed 2 in lift from Rough Country, 1.5 in spacers, Reupolstered and raised the center arm rest (much more comfortable) and removed the 3rd row seats and built a storage box (thanks adondo !!!)

Next NEW SHOES !!!!!!!!

The arm rest is about 3 inches higher. And yes it still opens. I got spoiled after driving a Land Cruiser with arm rest attahced to the seats, this little change really makes a difference in comfort!!!!!!

How did you change your arm rest? That is a minor pet peav of mine as well. Stock arm rest is too low.

I took it to an auto upostery shop. They added 3 inch of pading and re-upostered in matching leather. Total out the door was $ 85.00. Honestly, probably the best mod I have done.
