    It’s past time to have all these plugs replaced and I got three estimates but they’re pretty far off. My (previous) mechanic admittedly isn’t a Jeep (or HEMI) guy so I may have to just take her to the stealership. Can someone tell me approximately what this should cost? (I’m on the California...

    Hello all fellow Commander commanders! I've just purchased my first Jeep. It is a 2006, 5.7l Hemi. Or was. I know I got taken, but I love this vehicle. I say taken, because less than a month into ownership(and not driving it hardly at all the first 2 weeks) the motor blew up while I was...

    Will running a lower tire size than stock have a negative effect on performance? I have a Jeep commander limited 4×4 with Hemi Curious if running a 225 65 17 tire will cause issues.

    I have been a Hemi engine fan for decades. Currently use a WK and have been trying to make it better, more reliable and more capable. Just about all updates and improvements will also work on the XK to make it more reliable, more capable and more fun to drive. Despite the fact we don't have an...

    That's right! Contrary to popular belief (and recommendations) I'm highly considering transitioning to the MD coils for my '08 5.7L XK. We recently had a baby and now the wife drives the Commander around more and she complains about how "bumpy" the ride feels. Because of that it's made me more...

    At 166,000 miles, it is now using more than 1 qt per 1000 miles. Used to go 6000 without using any. Changed every 6000 with M1 5w20 and K&N filter. The oil use seems to have started at about 130,000, and is steadily getting worse. Jeep claims PCV valve has been replaced every 30,000 as part of...
