@James Mitchell Hampton;

Welcome to the forum Hambone;

You didn't get an infraction for not saying hi, you received an infraction because your user profile was incomplete - even after I PM'd you with the instructions on how to complete it.

Anyway, your profile looks good now, so thanks for straightening that out.

Here are a couple of good threads to start reading if you're looking to buy a Commander:

https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums...tart-here.html

https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums...oking-buy.html

As far as lifting your Commander to put bigger tires on, it would help if we knew what kind of budget you had to work with for your build, in order to give you the proper recommendations;

There are a lot of different ways you can go with a lift; Some are simple and cheap like a spacer lift - others are much more involved and expensive like the 4 inch Superlift - hence why it would help to know what kind of budget you'd be working with.

That's good news.

So your profile says it's a 2008 Limited with 135,000 miles & the Hemi - is that correct?
