My 1st post, YEAH!!!
I've been a Jeep fanatic for as long as I remember and I recently purchased a couple of Commanders from being out of the seen for a while...bought an 08 Commander Base model 3.7L and realized the interior was not all that great so I searched craigslist and came across an 06 Commander that had a blown engine but had immaculate leather interior and for the price...well, it was worth it just for the interior swap on my 08 Commander but when I went to look at it I realized it was the Hemi 5.7L Limited so I decided to get long block and fix it as it is worth way more fixed VS parts. I love Jeep, I had a 1999 Cherokee Sport 2 Door 2WD 4.0 HO and I ran that sucker for a whole summer without any water in the Yuma, AZ area...if you know the area you know how hot it can get there...not realizing that I had bought it with a clogged radiator and didn't have as much as a hiccup until my radiator hose blew due the excess pressure I suppose and my mechanic told me there was rust inside radiator so I had must have been running that car without water for a while...never overheated or any, my Cherokee Sport was just fine and ran for ever until I upgraded to a Grand Cherokee 5.7
Now, after a few years out of the Jeep seen I find myself back in it with a BANG!
I had purchased a 05 Jeep Grand Cherokee and was disappointed on the ride while driving it and tried a friends Commander, loved the feel of it so I went ahead and bought one...the 08 Jeep Commander Base 3.7L, baby balls---I Know---so you can only imagine my eyes when I seen the Hemi in the 06...I felt so lucky!
* I actually have the 05 Grand Cherokee up for sale if anyone is interested....I've invested some money on it thinking I was gonna like it...I hated the height/stans of it when I got it so I upgraded to the 2" OME lift along with JBA Upper A-arms for lifted WK/XK (Which are great) and I just couldn't help myself on upgrading rims/tires to the Rubicon 17" with the 255/75/17 along with wheel spacers...looks and feels a lot better than stock.
I'm including pictures of the 08 Commander...the 06 Commander is in the shop getting a makeover so the pictures will have to wait. I found some rust on the 08 Commander and will be taken care of it, these are the pictures without the rock sliders and fender flares.
Does anyone know where I can get front and back bumper with tire carrier? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
By the way, the rims are FUEL ONE PIECE RECOIL - D585 17x8.5 -18 Offset 4.75 B/S on Nitto H2's 265/70/17 with no rubbing, no pinch mod, no spacers. Next rims will be 17x9 same B/S or more offset.
