2007 Jeep Commander Sport
Color: Steel Blue
Engine: 3.7L V6
Trans: QT1
Interior: Gray leather
Sirius

History:
Bought: December 2007, 14k miles, 4 months old, had been a Hertz fleet vehicle, was in practically brand new condition. Now has 31,000 miles on it.

Accident history:
3 days after I bought it, old lady backed into me in a parking lot, her fault, had to have side flare and side door shell replaced, insurance covered 100%.
Almost a year later, to the day... happened again. This time, it was a 16 year old girl who had just gotten her license, and she smacked my (parked) back bumper while I was shopping in a store, came out to find a policewoman taking a report. Her fault, 100% covered by insurance, got it fixed a month later.

Mods:
- Chrome side moldings
- Chrome rear grab handles
- Jeep rubber floor mats (which were some of the best investments I've put into this vehicle, I might add)
- Tow receiver
- SilverStar Ultra headlights and SilverStar fog lights
- Rough Country 2" lift
- 17x9 ProComp 6059 (-8offset) wheels
- 275/60/17 Toyo Open Country A/T's
- Chrome air deflector
- Chrome bumper guard
- Chrome tailgate handle
- Chrome gas filler door


Here is what it looked like when I brought it home:


And here is the current:

Wow looking pretty sexy there. I didn't think I would like those wheels when I saw them in the shop but I am pretty impressed.

Here's the new headlights, Sylvania Silverstar Ultras (9005SU and 9006SU). For reference, my old headlights looked pretty much like my foglights in this. They're obviously whiter and brighter. I'll probly go ahead and get the fog lights in the standard silverstars.

Good grief... so I ordered all this 3 weeks ago. The wheels/tires came in less than a week later. The Daystar lift just now got here (almost 3 weeks later), and it was MISSING PARTS.

So we gave Daystar the 1-finger salute, called up Rough Country, and they should have one to us by tomorrow.

I'm so anxious to get this stuff on, and it's taking FOREVER!
