Own a Commander?: Yes
Model year: 2006
Trim Package: Limited
Power-Train: 5.7L V-8 Hemi
If 4WD - system: QD-II
Current Mileage: 220k
Preface: 2006 Commander 5.7 Limited QDII, tow package, 238k on the body
Use: Sometimes Flat towing my TJ to trail events, Possibly buying a small camping trailer/pop up, Daily driver, Minor trail use but some logging roads (maybe 2 x a year) and definitely winter driving heavy snow use.
After reading around the forums and seeing some posts from a few forum gurus (Big blue etc etc) I think this is where I am going, any input, "While your there" advice is greatly appreciated..
Lift: 2 inch Rough country
Tires: 265/70/R17, I considered doing a 255/75/r17 only because JK take offs are everywhere in my area, set of barely used tires with nice rims $500-800 bucks, I like saving money but RC only recommends the 265 with their lift, worried about unseen headaches if I went with the slightly larger tire, also If I went this route I would do the pinch weld mod, With the 265 tires I would not do the mod.
Tire brand/type: Still pricing these out but right now I am looking at semi aggressive AT tires such as **** Cepek tough country, Hankook dynapro, General grabbers etc etc..Tires that fall around or under a $150 per tire budget.
Shocks: Having Bilstiens on my TJ and loving them, I am going to go with the 4600's front and back if anyone has the proper model numbers that would be appreciated, I really don't trust computer auto fit guides,
Coils: I think I am going to stick with the stock Commander coils, The high mileage on these original does concern me but trying to keep costs down and I am not even sure what is available for after market coils..
Thank you all in advance for your input on my proposed build, All input and advice as to what I should use or suggested maintenence issues I should address while working on the suspension would be beyond fantastic!!!
