I'll have to pick up part 2, didn't know it was already out. There really wasn't much on the Commanders in part 1.

I was anxiously awaiting part 2 of the build up but was disappointed to see that they used the Mopar rock rails which ".. don't support the weight of the vehicle if you hit them really hard on the rocks ... and they get bent up ..." I also wasn't too fond of the one-off winch mount.

it wouldn't take much to make some rock rails on the commander. i just need time and some $.

maybe in the next year. i've already landed on the plastic a couple of times. luckily nothing got hurt.

I too did not think much of the winch mount. It looks real backyard for a high end vehicle.

The whole Commander build up seems like a half job. Seems like they just took whatever was easiest.
