Thumbs up New to this

Hey guys! My name is Tiffany, I'm a single mom of 4 from the Cleveland, Ohio area and I recently bought my first Jeep. I was in the market for an SUV that had 3rd row seating and when I came across the Commander it was instant love. I searched in the tri-state area for the perfect commander for about 2 months and decided to just go with a stock version so I can have all the fun of souping her up and making her the Commander I know she can be. Right now I'm just in the process of bringing her back up to par as shes a little worn down. I've slowly been working on control arms, tune ups, brakes/rotors, chips in the windows, bushings, oil changes, etc... and SOON I'm hoping to move onto more fun stuff like roof racks, Brush racks, light bars and of course at some point down the line I want to give her a nice 6" lift and new 'shoes' to go with it I have definitely become a Jeep Girl over the past couple months and I'm now bringing my little ones into the lifestyle, with the littlest being 6 yrs young. Just last weekend was helping me remove tires and grease my calipers as we replaced the front brakes and rotors. I have scanned through a lot of posts already here, and wanted to say thank you to everyone who suggested the Iridium spark plugs, they were SO simple to install and great quality(all but one were gapped perfectly BTW). My first extra I am looking into adding is definitely a hitch as they are on sale near me with a nice mail in rebate. I have also looked though Nordstroms automotive in search of a new dash board as mine has some peeling damage due to the wonderful sunroof issues I have since repaired with the help of multiple youtube videos. I'm also debating over if I should just purchase my crossbars on that site as well to get them a little cheaper. Well, thats all about me!! Thanks for welcoming me in, and I look forward to learning a great deal from all of you experienced Jeep lovers!
