Just bought my 2007 Commander!

Hello everyone;

I'm from Victoria BC Canada, and I just picked up a 2007 Commander 5.7L QD2. At around 94,700 kms it's pretty low mileage, and seems to have been treated very well over the last 12 years. I've been reading up on some of the things you can do to these vehicles, and I can't wait to make this car my own.

Well, my immediate plans are to get rid of the drug-dealer 22" rims that it came with, and go back to stock for now. I've been reading through the forum here and people seem to have found that the aFe Stage 2 cold-air intake works very well, so I might save my pennies for that. Other tweaks like the chrome gas cap and 5.7 hemi engine dress-up kit are cheap things I can do to make the car my own.

Down the road I definitely want to put in a 2" lift, more aggressive wheel/tire package, and maybe even a bumper upgrade.

Have that on my 4.7L, I'm quite happy with it.

Thanks for the post with all the links Big Blue; the link to download the build sheet was particularly useful. The pics of your engine bay look great. Does the aFe intake change the note of the engine a lot?

No problem at all.

I assume by note, you mean the sound? You can hear the engine breathing a little more, but other than that, I'd say no.

The 3 1/2 inch AFE stainless steel cat-back exhaust, drastically changed the sound of the engine, giving it that nice deep rumble, even at idle - but not obnoxiously loud.
