Hello. I bought an '06 Commander about a year ago. I love it. I have a leveling kit in it. I am currently removing the fender flares and attempting to fabricate inner fender wells. It would be fun to outfit it for some moderate trails. I am new to Jeep and the off road thing. I come from a hot rod / rat rod background. I hope to get a lot of ideas and info here as I journey through my first jeep.

Once your profile has been completed, our community would certainly like to get to know you better, so, please take the time to post an introduction thread in the new member section.
This is required
and an accepted practice, here in our Jeep Commander community.
PLEASE: Do not post your introduction in another persons thread; your introduction should be your own "New Member" thread that you've created.
Please tell us your name & where you are from; Then you can follow up with other information like the year, trim package, color, power-train, and 4WD system of the Commander you own - or the Commander you are looking for.
Current mileage and any modifications completed would also be useful information to share.
UNTIL YOU REACH A PRE-DETERMINED POST COUNT
- You will only be able to post in the New Member Section
- but you can read
any thread or post in any sub-forum.
Once you hit that pre-determined post count (which is not very high) your full user privileges will automatically kick-in and you will be able to post in the entire forum - including all of the sub-forums and you will also be able to post photos, URLs & hyperlinks.
When posting or uploading images - please don't upload or post anything larger than 1024 x 768 pixels
because it bogs down the site and the image will take forever to load/open.
Since Photobucket started charging $400.00 a year for 3rd party image hosting, a lot of members have been asking for an alternative FREE 3rd party image hosting website - so here is a pretty good one:
Our community is a wealth of information and we are always happy to help people in their quest to learn about the Commander they have just bought - or the Commander they are looking for.
To Anybody who is Looking to buy a Commander;
You can check to see if all of the factory recalls & campaigns have been completed for the Commander you're looking at (or for the Commander you have already bought) by clicking on the hyperlink below & plugging in the VIN; If you are still looking and have not bought your Commander yet, I strongly recommend you do this BEFORE you buy it;
To get the factory build sheet for the Commander you are looking at, or for the Commander you have already bought, click on the link below and navigate to "Your Vehicle" click on "Equipment Listing" and then enter your VIN number in the box that says "VIN" and hit "Search". The factory build sheet will list all of the factory options & optional preferred equipment packages that your vehicle had installed from the factory when it was built.

The difference between a safety recall and a campaign is this; a safety recall pertains to a vehicle problem that is a safety concern; a campaign is a vehicle problem that is not a safety concern, but, pertains to customer satisfaction.
Additionally if you buy a Commander, and it didn't come with an owner's manual, you can download and print a factory owner's manual from this website; here is the link - and again, this is from the same website I listed above, just navigate to the point where you select "year" and "model" of the vehicle you want the owner's manual for:
This forum is also a great place for general jeep knowledge, since many of our members have owned (or still own) other makes and models of Jeeps as well, so, ALL Jeep owners are welcome here.
I'd like to wish you all a very warm welcome to JeepCommander.com and we hope you enjoy the forum.
