2006 Commander in NC

Hey, new to these forums. I acquired my grandparents 2006 Commander Limited 4x4 4.7L V8 earlier this year. It has now become my daily driver/tow rig after some extensive underbody repairs due to rust. Almost the entire suspension was original and needed all new joints and bushings. I threw a Rough Country 2" lift kit on it since everything was off the car anyway. It also needed a new oil pan since the oil was leaking THROUGH IT!

One picture of the Commander after putting the lift kit on it and replacing almost the entire suspension. Once the tires go out will be upgrading those as well!

Trying to find a DIY for the Valve Cover Gaskets on a 4.7 as I know mine need replacing. Figured I would do that when I go in to do spark plugs. So far the search has turned up nothing. The rest of the internet all I can find is for the Grand Cherokee 4.7. I don't necessarily need to have a full DIY, but I really need to know if the AC lines need to be unhooked to perform this job.

Thanks

You already started a separate thread on this - no need to post it twice.
