Finally got my lift

I've had my Commander 5 years now and finally got around to putting a 2" lift on it. Decided to change the struts and shocks while I was at it.

When I first got it...



With 245/65/17 Dynapro ATMs and American Racing Fuel wheels...



After the lift, struts, shocks, and new 255/70/17 Cooper AT3s and Level 8 Punch wheels from Discount Tire...

Thanks guys. As the Commander is my DD I wanted to wait until I was in a better spot financially in case it all went wrong - but thankfully it didn't. The ATMs and American Racing wheels carried me the last few years as I couldn't leave it completely alone.

LuvMyCommander - the fronts are Monroe Reflex. I got such a good deal at Rock Auto that I couldn't pass them up. The rear are Bilstein 5100 series for 0"-1.5" lifted Grand Cherokees. Part # is 33-225807.

Later this week the Rola roof basket goes on!

Very conservative height upgrade. What type of lift kit did you installed? Thumbs up!
