New Guy here..

Good evening fellas, I have been lurking for a bit gathering up all kinds of awesome information on this forum before finally setting up a profile. I did answer the questionnaire as mentioned before. My last vehicle was an awesome 2013 Wrangler Sahara Moab with a 2 1/2" lift on 35's. Great truck, but the $600 payments not so much, so last month I made the mistake of going to just 'look' at a 2006 Jeep Commander Limited.... That's all she wrote, I fell in love with how well it drove, how beautiful the interior was, the awesome 5.7L Hemi, QDII, and tons of room compared to my wrangler. I got an awesome deal and took her home that day. I liked my wrangler, but I must say I love my Commander.. Except for that horrible stock front end rake lol. I look forward to learning more about the truck and what it can do and welcome any pointers! I know I'd like a 2.5" lift, preferably spring, and 265/70/17's on stock rims with spacers. Sorry for the long post fellas, just can't wait to get started!!!
