New member here. West Central Illinois. First Jeep ever. Had an extended cab F150. Decided to get the Commander for more family hauling ability and the ability to have secured, covered cargo storage. So far it has been amazing and I love this vehicle. I got the Hemi for the towing capacity because without a truck bed, I'll be using my utility trailer for more things. The Commander tows better than my full size truck and has way more torque than my old 5.4L Triton.

Hope we can get a little snow this winter so I can go have some fun in the white stuff.

Look forward to participating in this community.

Thanks,
vaughn77
