08 overland

hello commander community my name is Chris and I'm from NY. I've had my commander for about a month now.and I've been trolling the forums ever since. i finally decided to just become a member since I'm on here all the time lol. i brought my commander used from the worse jeep dealer in NY lol i swear never will i ever step foot in that place again. i honestly cant say I'm happy just yet with the truck. as the days go on i keep finding things that don't work and aren't quite right.. as with any car you buy used. but I'm sure once i address a few things ill have a jewel. this is my 2nd jeep my first was a 95 grand Cherokee limited 5.2 litre it was a blast until i totaled it.

My plans for the commander are pretty modest eventually i want to do a 3" lift with a set of 18's or 32's still doing some strolling on the forums about the different lifts they have available but i haven't quite made a decision yet. i don't plan to off road or anything crazy i just like the look well i think i rambled on long enough any questions feel free to ask

Welcome aboard. I had a 95 Grand also with 5.2L. Also loved it. One of many Jeeps I have owned over the years. I have only had my 06 XK Limited a few months so far. I love it but she is expensive. I discovered lots of little things that needed to be fixed and each one was $$$ so have your credit card handy. Many things you can do your self if you have the tools and help from the forum here. Enjoy.
