  1. General Commander Discussion
    I kept getting damage to the rear differential cover from high center rocks on the local trails. Nothing major, just enough to break the seal. I used some clean scrap steel and my very rusty welding skills to make a 1/4" skid. Also custom bent a U bolt blank to go over the top. Will take...
  2. Problems / Dealer Service
    Just replaced the passenger side rear wheel hub. I've never done this before. When pulling the hub off the axle shaft came out partway. I put it back in and finished my reassembly. My next job was to change my differential oil. Pulled the cover off and saw that it might be pushed into the...

    Sorry if this is a repost but I have been searching for 2 days and have not found anything like this. I own a 2008 Jeep Commander 4.7L two weeks ago it began to make this low humming noise which I thought nothing of. Then 3 days later it started making this noise that sounds like road noise from...

    Hey, I know it's been a while, but I StubledUpon this and thought it might be interesting for you guys. It does a great job of breaking it down. I would have to ask you guys exactly what the more specific numbers are referring to when you discuss differentials. Pretty neat little flick none the...
  7. Regular Service / Maintenance
    I made a quick video on how to change the oil front and rear differentials my 4.7L, 4X4 Grand Cherokee and thought I would share here since they have the same drive train. Hope this helps someone out if they have never done their own maintenance before...
  8. Suspension / Lifts
    Hi, I just had my first offroad experience at the Mounds in Mt. Morris, MI and my priorities have changed for my upgrades. While nothing bad happened to my stock Commander, I have decided armor plating might be a good thing. Does anyone know of any armored differential covers for the...
