What stickers should I get?
Good morning, Jeeps! I recently purchased a new to me 2007 Commander with the 3.7L motor and I want to get a little more snap out of it.
I was thinking of getting a NOS sticker or maybe a Holley sticker because every car I see those stickers on is fast. Which sticker will make mine faster?
I was also thinking of getting a TapOut sticker as a deterrent. Everyone knows that people with TapOut stickers are in constant road rage mode and would be quick to take any fight to the ground. Nobody wants to get rear naked choked on the side of the road.
For those that missed it, that was humor. If you didn't catch it, you might find a good sense of one on Ebay.
Seriously, this site has been a great resource leading up to my Commander purchase. The vehicle I sold I get it was a Jeep Wrangler TJ which never let me down, but I needed something quieter. With the TJ, if you had anything to say, you better say it before we got on the interstate.
I don't quite know how capable it will be offroad. I need it to be capable and reliable since we are offroad twice a week, every week. I don't need it to be able to climb waterfalls, but I do need more ground clearance.
So far, I have some 265/70/r17's coming. They should arrive today. The 1.5" spacers arrived yesterday and the 2" Rough Country lift will arrive on Monday. Am I missing anything or does the list sound about right?
Also, for offroad purposes, what are the weak points in the factory suspension? I'd like to upgrade them before they become an issue.
Finally, since most local shops will not install wheels onto spacers, can I have the new tires and lift aligned at a shop and add the spacers afterwards at home? I'm not sure how that works and am concerned that adding the spacers after an alignment will change the geometry voiding out the alignment.
Thanks for being a great resource and thanks, in advance, for the replies.
