In order of preference...
  • Air Suspension (...like the VW Toureg or Land Rover LR3.)
  • Diesel Engine (...this could at least be the 3.2L Mercedes Benz diesel engine.)
  • HID / LED Lighting (LED headlights would work better with a Smartbeam-type system.)
  • Integrated Rock Rails (...like the 2004 Grand Cherokee Overland had.)
  • Audio Jack For MP3 Player (I know the system allows you to play MP3 CDs, but this would save you from burning CDs.)

Re: What Are Future Enhancements / Options To The Commander Would You Like To See?

In no particular order:

Powered third row seats like the ones in the new Ford Explorers....
Rear camera tied into the navigation system...
Courtesy lights on the bottom of the outside mirrors to aid in seeing at night...
Optional roof rack on Limited models...
Optional 20" Rims similar to the ones on the Grand Cherokee SRT8...
Body color matched painted mirrors...
Opening CommandView 2nd row skylights...
Factory option of a window decal of that little kid peeing on the HUMMER embelm...
Powered opening/closing rear...
Heads-Up Display similar to whats in Corvettes...
Plus what was already posted.

.. would be nice to have:

See my "First 1000 Miles" post in the general discussions for details, but here is the short version:
1. 2nd row seat does not offer enough leg room
2. Dome light is missing
3. Lower speed setting for ventilation blower
4. 4 Cylinder activation should work at higher speeds too
5. Steering too numb
6. Interior window/hatch release button (possibly combined with automated tail gate opener/closure mechanism)

Re: What Are Future Enhancements / Options To The Commander Would You Like To See?

I would like to see:

Power tailgate (open and close).
Quick disconnect (easy removable) third row seat.
More leg room for second seat.
More color choices (even though I chose Khaki).
Pouch behind passenger seat (like the one behind drivers seat).
Cheaper replacement key ($160.00 + $40.00 programing fee is TOO MUCH!)

*I reserve the right to add more as time passes by...

A cargo cover for use when/if the third row seat is removed.

Turn signal indicators on the outside mirrors.

Re: What Are Future Enhancements / Options To The Commander Would You Like To See?

A little more lift from the factory should be standard. Paint or coat all the parts underneath that will get that lovely rust patina over time. Definitely quick release thrd row seats with quick release cargo box/basket. An accessory roof rack (aluminum) that covers the entire roof as big as I can get. A chrome push bar that will accomodate larger round aux lights.
