Hello new members. Please allow me to welcome you to jeepcommander.com; We want you to enjoy your time here, share your experiences and hopefully learn more about your Jeep Commander by reading the valuable information that is provided and shared here among our members;
Now, that being said, first & foremost we need to ensure you, as new members, take the following steps to adhere to the forum rules & guidelines that have been put in place;
Each member is allowed one user profile and one user profile only; Any member caught creating multiple user profiles will immediately be banned from the forum permanently for Violation of forum rules.
If you are a new member and registering to create your user profile - YOU SHOULD LOG-IN FROM A DESKTOP OR LAPTOP COMPUTER.
There are New Member Profile Questions that must be answered with profile fields that must be filled out; They are easily accessed & viewed if you are logged in from a desktop or laptop computer - IT IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO VIEW ALL OF THE PROFILE QUESTIONS / FIELDS IF YOU ARE LOGGED IN ON A SMART PHONE USING THE MOBILE VIEW APP.
These Profile Questions / Fields are a mandatory requirement and must be answered & filled in completely by ALL FORUM MEMBERS .
If you post your 1st post/New Member Introduction without completing your profile as directed here - your post will be deleted and you will be issued a forum infraction. Failure to complete your user profile as directed, will result in being banned from the forum for violation of forum rules for a period of time to be determined by the Forum Moderators. The ban may range from 30 days to a permanent ban from the forum, depending on the circumstances.
To answer your profile questions and complete your profile fields, Click on your username
and select the "View Public Profile"
tab and click on "About Me"
and you will see the questions that need to be answered to update your user profile information.
Completing your user profile is mandatory
- failure to do so will result in disciplinary action which can include being banned from the forum for non-compliance & violation of forum rules.
If you don't own a Commander just answer "No" to the "Own a Commander?" question and you don't need to answer any more of the Commander specific questions.
If you do own a Commander, obviously, you'll answer "Yes" and then answer the rest of the questions pertaining to your Commander.
When your user profile questions are properly completed, your Commander's information will be displayed beneath your username/avatar like this;
Own a Commander?:
2WD or 4WD:
If 4WD - system:
Once your profile has been completed, our community would certainly like to get to know you better, so, please take the time to post an introduction thread in the new member section.
This is a requirement
and an accepted practice, here in our Jeep Commander community.
PLEASE: Do not post your introduction in another persons thread; your introduction should be your own "New Member" thread that you've created.
Please tell us your name (first name - or even a nick-name is fine) & where you are from; Then you can follow up with other information like the year, trim package, color, power-train, and 4WD system of the Commander you own - or the Commander you are looking for. You may also add whatever other relevant background information you would like to share.
Current mileage and any modifications completed would also be useful information to share.
UNTIL YOU REACH A PRE-DETERMINED POST COUNT
- You will only be able to post in the New Member Section
- but you can read
any thread or post, in any sub-forum.
Once you hit that pre-determined post count (which is not very high) your full user privileges will automatically kick-in and you will be able to post in the entire forum - including all of the sub-forums and you will also be able to post photos, URLs & hyperlinks.
When posting or uploading images - please don't upload or post anything larger than 1024 x 768 pixels
because it bogs down the site and the image will take forever to load/open.
Since Photobucket started charging $400.00 a year for 3rd party image hosting a couple of years back, a lot of members have been asking for an alternative FREE 3rd party image hosting website - so here is a pretty good one:
Our community is a wealth of information and we are always happy to help people in their quest to learn about the Commander they have just bought - or the Commander they are looking for.
For Anybody who is Looking to buy a Commander;
You can check to see if all of the factory recalls & campaigns have been completed for the Commander you're looking at (or for the Commander you have already bought) by clicking on the hyperlink below & plugging in the VIN; If you are still looking and have not bought your Commander yet, I strongly recommend you do this BEFORE you buy it;
To get the factory build sheet
for the Commander you are looking at, or for the Commander you've already bought, enter your VIN here:
Secondary link: https://jeep.custhelp.com/app/jeep/eqlisting_detail/
The factory build sheet will list all of the factory options & optional preferred equipment packages that your vehicle had installed from the factory when it was built.
The difference between a safety recall and a campaign is this; a safety recall pertains to a vehicle problem that is a safety concern; a campaign is a vehicle problem that is not a safety concern, but, pertains to customer satisfaction.
Additionally if you bought a Commander, and it didn't come with an owner's manual, you can download a .PDF owner's manual to save and/or print, from the website link below;
Just click on "Jeep" then select the "Year" and "Model" of your Commander and click on "Select Vehicle"
Next, click on the "Owner's Manual" tab under "QUICK LINKS" then click on the "DOWNLOAD THE MANUAL (PDF)" button.
This forum is also a great place for general jeep knowledge, since many of our members have owned (or still own) other makes and models of Jeeps as well, so, ALL Jeep owners are welcome here.
I'd like to wish you a very warm welcome to JeepCommander.com and we hope you enjoy the forum.
