New commander owner

Just picked up an 07 a couple of weeks ago. Its got the 4.7 and the 4wd with the low option t handle. I forget which 4wd that is called. Its white, and in pretty decent shape. Needs some tlc, a few things to make it a good reliable jeep. Im new to the commanders but recently had an 08 JGC for a few years, so basically the same vehicle. Most of the same issues have cropped up. Its got 170k on it but it runs great and I got it dirt cheap so it should be a fun ride for at least the winter. Hope to meet you all in the forums.

There is a chrome t shaped handle on the console by the shifter that drops the transfer case into low gear. Check Blue's link for the details on how it works.


I will try to get some pics up soon. Its basically a stock white commander with a few limited parts thrown on there by a careless body shop at one time.

Its a cross over from the Fiat 500 Based Jeep Renegade.

In effect its an ejector seat but its called the low option because it ejects the seat downwards through the vehicle floor.

Do not tamper with this switch whilst the vehicle is moving.

(I prefer my explanation to the quadra drive 2 stuff)
