Hello from NC!

Fayetteville to be exact. My Dad bought a new car and sold me his '06 Commander Limited w/ 5.7L Hemi. So far I've polished the headlights and added Auto Vent Shades. I plan on building it up to look more like a 4x4 and less of an SUV.

Welcome! I also have a 2006 Limited that I bought new and am only start to modify it now. Never too late! This is a great forum to learn from, especially when you get used to the search function. Congrats!

NC, What did you polish the headlights with, they look good? I recently replaced my fog lights it cost between $30/40 and I had no luck reconditioning them. Enjoy our new ride. I am leaving a week from this Sunday for the OBX for a trip my annual fishing( since 1980) and concerned about the roads, would appreciate if you could keep me informed on I-95 road conditions.

To do your headlights watch and follow this video.

I-95 is open both ways atm.

Thanks. My Dad took great care of it and had regular maintenance done. It's coming up on 65,000 miles and a lot of that is highway miles.

Beautiful rig!

Great car to keep in the family!

You will find many great ideas on how to make your ride just as nice as a wrangler on the trails, I commit mine to the trails and will be hitting very serious trails soon with the new lift.

By the way, you are officially broke for the rest of your life now... Jeep owner.
