Hello from Dayton, Ohio! I have had the pleasure of owning my 2008 Commander Limited Hemi for about 2 years now. While in college, my F-150 was on its last leg so I was looking for a better and more off-road capable substitute. My first vehicle was a 1999 TJ and I also restored and own a 1976 Jeep Wagoneer, I looked to Jeep to solve my problem. The Commander is such a good looking truck with its old school body style that reminds me a lot of my Wagoneer. I never expected to keep the Jeep for as long as I have but me and the Jeep have been through a lot in the past couple years and I can't imagine ever getting rid of it now/finding a new vehicle that is even a 1/3 as cool as the Commander. I love my Jeep.
So now I am graduating from pharmacy school this May, and afterwards I will be moving to Aurora, Colorado with my fiance. The move and our love for the outdoors has given me a great idea. I've always admired various overlanding rigs I've seen at tradeshows and on the internet. Now it is my Jeeps turn. I plan on building the Jeep in the next few months and taking it on all of our adventures.
I have many plans and one of which is a Superlift once I get the funds. I hope to start a build thread in the coming months. I'll be searching the forum heavily, it has already been quite helpful!
