My First Jeep!

Hello,
I live in Idaho and just recently bought a black 2007 Commander Limited 4x4 w/Hemi in Arizona. I'm flying down to Az in a few weeks to pick it up and drive it home. Pretty excited to get to drive one. My father lives in Phoenix and test drove it for me. He really loved it and so I'm sure I will love it as well.
Looking forward to learning about the Commander. This will mostly be a daily driver for me, but I am curious about putting a lift on it, mainly for aesthetics. However I do not want to mess anything up in the suspension or steering by doing so, so maybe it should just stay stock.

Thanks!
Gina

I highly recommend the Traildash 2. Great investment, better power, shifts better and better fuel economy. My Hemi loves it. Plus, when you lift it, the programmer can adjust your computer for different size tires. For the lift, it's hard to go wrong with the 2 inch from Old Man Emu.
