Hey guys:


So I just bought a 5.7L 2006 Commander with 51K on it for $7800. It is a limited, white on tan model. Bone stock right now but that will change in a major way. Below are my plans. I would like input on them please.


1. 6" Lift, brand unknown, cant seem to find any on the internet.
2. Wheel and tires refitted, not sure on what size would fit.
3. Roof basket
4. I saw some round headlight replacements I would like to do.
5. Front bumper replacement.


Anything else you guys would definitely do?


Jeff

There are no 6 inch lifts for the Commander. What people have been doing to get 6" is installing the Superlift 4" lift with 2" spacers added to it. Here is a thread for information on lifts, tires, spacers, etc.: https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums/26-wheels-tires/8393-new-here-read-thread-faqs-tires-lifts-spacers.html.
