Hi

Hi,


I bought my first Jeep about a year ago. Its is a Silver 2006 Jeep Commander Limited, with the 5.7 L Hemi. And soon after I fell in love. Since then I have put a 2" RC leveling kit on it, bigger tires, roof rack, light bars, CB radio, and some tow points on the front.


Eventually I want to replace the roof rack with a custom rack to bring it down a little lower. I want to get new front and rear bumpers, and bring my spare tire off the roof, and get a winch. I also want sliders, and then paint the bottom, fender cover things, and bumpers all black, (probably bed liner), and get black rims, (and maybe even bigger tires and a 4 or 6 inch lift not 100% sold on this idea yet).



Anyway, I really like this Jeep so far, it has done everything I have asked it to and more.

Last time I went there a few days ago, it said something to the effect that they were updating their website; Give it a week or two.
