2009 commander limited

hello everyone... I'm not sure who follows this because the commander has been "dead" for 8 years now... but heres my story... I joined the Marines out of high school.. got a job with certain skills I've learned.. As a young man with a family saw the jeep commander when it was introduced but didn't bight.. 13 years later I'm looking for something not to big (like a 60k tahoe and not too brittle like a 2018 explorer)... I'm a family guy with a wife that told me to get what i want... so i chose a commander!

i was very spectacle buying a 9 year old truck with 90k... but i knew it was what i wanted, good miles, no rust, and good running...

my name is omar.. and i want to be apart of this group.. I've read a lot of your stuff.. but a lot of it has been in the past.

heres my first question. rocky roads lift or rough country?

Welcome to the group Omar, do a search for lifts and I am sure you will find a lot of good information. Others with lifts will chime in I am sure. Thanks for your service.
