HI! New Jeep addict

Hi everyone !My name is Kim and own a 2006 Jeep Commander Limited with 5.7 Hemi, Quad Drive II with about 108,000 miles. I bought my jeep back in 2012 and ever since then have loved my jeep. It is a beast. I am just starting to add some modifications to my XK. 2in leveling kit, to take care of that horrible rake from the factory. Put a new JVC Head unit in with Bluetooth. My old one didn't have that option. Putting bigger tires on also, 265.70.17 on it. with possible spacers..and new black Rhino rims. I am super excited to see what all this will look like when its all completed. JEEP ADDICT FOR LIFE!!

Hi again Kim, figured I'd jump in on your thread and ask you questions. How has it been holding up. Like any really major problems. I've been looking at 2008 or 09 because of some of the things I read on earlier years, and it's hard to get an accurate picture just reading the posts. Like they say you only hear about the bad stuff.

Hello,


is the new JVC unit that you put in a touchscreen? i have been considering changing the stock display to a more modern unit however, not really sure how easy that would be. Wondering if there are some out there that are plug and play?

I had a Pioneer AVH-X490BS installed and added a Sirius XM Satellite receiver to it.

I'm pretty happy with it now that I have finally figured out where all of the audio/sound adjustments are, including the cross-over & subwoofer adjustments.

It has touchscreen, Bluetooth, the whole 9 yds - it even came with a remote control, which I don't use.

Here are some pics:

Do either of those units, the Pioneer or the Kenwood have AUX jacks, or is that eliminated by the Bluetooth?
