Replaced 1996 G. Cherokee With a 2006 Commander

Hello,

This is an excellent forum.

Last week I picked up a blue 2006 Jeep Commander at CarMax. I wanted a V6 but I had to settle for a V8 with only 17k miles. Oh well. The prices on used Jeeps dropped like a rock. The wife is not too happy. I only let her drive it one time so far with my supervision.

I am at ham radio operator so I am trying to figure out how to install a few antennas and radios. Most likely I will be installing a CB, VHF and a HF TarHeel screwdriver antenna.

Welcome, we need some pics. You'll like the 4.7, gets the same mileage as a 3.7m and you have more power.
