new here..saying hello

figured i would stop in and say hello.

i own a company (F.R.I.) that works with the new hemi engines. we have a jeep commander we will be doing some work to soon and figured i would stop in here and let yall know about it.

we offer basic mods for the motors like ported heads and camshafts. any other item that is available for the vehicle we can get also.

Where are you located? And as the above poster indicated, how about some means to improve gas mileage. Powerwise I am more then happy with the Hemi as is, but sure would like to get 20mpg at least on the highway. john

well.
one of our first lx platforms, a magnum with a 5.7 hemi, has been able to make a consistent 28-29 mpg on roadtrips.

this was a heads/cam package.

i can make the same mods work opn the jeep if i can determine if you guys have a superchips tuner or a diablo available. i know the diablo is available for the 5.7 jeep cherokee..just dont know if it works on the commander yet.

The Commander is way heavier than the magnum. What was the mpg on the stock engine.

I'm moving to Las Cruces first of the year, have to drive thru Houston on the way. I always hate that portion of the trip. Have tried Rte 10 thru Houston various different times, always busy as all get out. john

no doubt they are heavy. heck, the magnum is coming in at 4700 pounds.
still no where near what a commander should weigh.

houston traffic is bad. even at 2am its almost intolerable.
