NJ owner 2006 V6 65th anniversary

Hi all,
Tried this yesterday and apparently did not work. So I am a relatively new owner (6 months) and surprised how much I like the Commander. I just signed up on the forum though I have used it for information for a while prior to joining. As for my Commander, it is better than expected especially at 177k miles. Mine has the leather option with heated seats. Since I got it, I have added a 2 inch lift, new shocks/struts, new water pump and new CV on the drive shaft. I like it so much that I am in the process of getting another with a V8 just for the upgraded towing capacity. Excited to get the new one and add the lift kit just like on my current ride.

Anyone looking for a V6 in NJ?

Welcome to the forum. Did you replace the cv joint on your drive shaft yourself, if so how difficult was it to replace and were did you get it?

Had a local trans place do it for me. He sent out the driveshaft to be redone. He installed the newly redone driveshaft and all was well. The car has been fine ever since. If you find a reputable and honest place this should not be a big deal.
