Appreciated! My commander is at the point where I'll be starting to do as much of the work it needs myself, so I imagine this forum will be of great value. Plus, my wife and I absolutely love the Commander and I'm hoping that we can get it in tip top shape in the coming months, especially once the weather warms up. I've owned a Wrangler in the past that was a joy to work on (what little I did do myself), but for some reason I am tad bit intimidated looking at this Jeep! Am I wrong for feeling this way? Please tell me I'm not LOL

Warm up? You are in TN, but I see northern TN, must be 2 degrees colder up there
I'm in Cleveland TN in the south. Working on the Commander has some challenges but nothing too bad. 16 spark plugs to change is time consuming but not hard - need some various length extensions and a good foam liner socket. I have fixed many problems myself but I have the lifetime power train warentee so the dealer has done the tough stuff.
I have been fighting for a cleaner way to change oil, mainly the filter - see this https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums/...ilter-add.html
Another member made an intake mod for cheap and I did that also see https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums/...or-delete.html
Search away as just about everything has been discussed.
