What is this?

Hi, I'm new to this forum. Have owned several Jeep in the past. 86CJ, 88 Grand Wagoner, and several TJ's.

Just bought a 2007 Commander Limited with 4.7 Flexfuel and 2wd.

I have a bunch of question about this Jeep. Hope y'all can help.

First of all. What is all this stuff hanging from my rear view mirror area?

The piece on the glass is for the rain sensitive wipers and the part on the mirror is the auto dimming stuff. Don't know why its so big when GM integrates it into the mirror.

It is big because there are several things in that unit that looks like just a rear view mirror.

It contains the camera that catches the video on a loop that can be used for accident investigation. It also provides the input to dim you brights when on automatic dim. The bluetooth for your phone is also in there also.

Not all Commanders may have these functions but I do know that some do.

2007 Jeep Green Limited 4.7 Flex Fuel, RR 2.5" 4 inch Superlift coils on rear, 1.5" Spacers, Bridgestone 265/70/17, K&N CAI, Flowmaster, Diamond Plate Locking Trunk, Blue Ox Baseplate w/D-rings, "Get Lost 4X4" Front Bumper, T-Max 9000 winch, "Get Lost rear tire carrier, 30 gal second gas tank.
Second 2007 Jeep Green Limited Leather HEMI QDII VES Uconnect Flowmaster OEM Skids Tow Package

Maybe the two will meet up soon edit: they did , I now have 2,now gave 1 away...and got it back again.

Yeah, the fat box at the back of the mirror mount is the Auto high-beam (Smart Beam) sensor unit. The rain sensor, like mentioned is the little guy on the glass. Otherwise it's your standard auto dimming mirror with possible UConnect which really doesn't take up much extra space.

I'm shocked and amazed you haven't yet heard from Jeep5323; he knows everything there is to know about jeep commanders.

He recently told us so.

I understand you had a disagreement in another post, but trash talking another member in a unrelated post in uncalled for.

Hey, c'mon.... funny's funny.... no matter where it happens.

I see absolutely no trash-talking.... it's a direct quote!

However.... hijacking this thread for my own amusement is probably not right.... so I'll tuck my smirk back away for another day.
Thanks for calling me out though. Sometimes I need it.
