Ah the dreaded newbie post...
I'm Josh, I'm a Jeep fanatic, love my XJ, but my growing family (5th kid)put me in the market for a commander. I've lurked and used the site here for my research over the last year that I've been shopping for one.
For that I owe ALL who contribute a debt of gratitude , and beers are on me this Saturday !
After many test drives and failed Craigslist viewings I finally hit the trifecta ( $$, QD2, Hemi) the trade off was the girl I bought from didn't keep up with wash/wax, and her kids really dirtied up the rear two rows. There were general signs of neglect except it had been in for regular maintenance at a local dealer, and had oil change records.
Bottom line is I'm a proud owner of a slightly ugly 06 limited 114k that needs some cosmetics done before I start lifting and building it up to be a go anywhere family camping /hunting truck.
It sounds and runs great, and as soon as the weather here in Detroit warms up I'm going to dig in on making it truly reliable. New fluids, plugs, brakes, shocks, fix rust, and a clean interior. Oh and it needs the heater control lighting fix too. Then maybe I can start considering replacing the factory nav unit.
I do like the growl of the Hdmi, but it needs just a little more sound at idle.
It's my first V8, and I need some rumble.
Also the front end is way down but I'm not ready to do a full spring replacement /lift yet. The rake is killing me visually.
