Just posting as a formality. Been locked out of posting for a while.

2007 Limited. 5.7, QD 2, towing and skid plates from factory - still have the mopar lifetime power train warranty.

Think I had the first set of OME HD springs about 200000 miles ago. JBA uppers, AEV rims and Mickey Thompson rubber these days.

Front and rear wam bumpers are currently on order.

Welcome back @Brian_JF; I'd like to see your WAM rear bumper when you get it installed; I've had the WAM hidden winch mount front bumper, I'd say for almost 2 years now;

What did WAM charge you for the rear bumper - if you don't mind me asking?

BB - read your review and update before ordering from wam. Looked at jeepsteel as well.

A guy backed into the old commander the other day in a parking lot and busted up the rear bumper. His insurance paid nearly $1500 and gave me an excuse to upgrade.

Paid list price for the slim rear version they have shown. No options other than shackle mounts - didnít want to give the power rear hatch. Iíve put on a spare maybe twice in 12 years and figured a swing wasnít worth the trouble. Pretty rare I canít plug, air up, and keep going.

Went with the version 3 for the front - pretty basic without a whole lot of options.

Total on both before shipping was $1650. Bare steel, not sure if I ll bedliner or what just yet.

I gotcha. Yea, JeepSteel is cheaper, but, the quality is inferior as well.

I opted not to get the rear bumper, mainly because I didn't want to add anymore weight.

$1650 for both is a pretty good deal. Post some pics when you get them installed.
