  2. Bilstein 5100 + RC 2" lift?

    Suspension / Lifts
    Hello all, so I decided to get the Bilstein B8 5100s front and rear shocks too. From what I know, the front on the highest setting will lift 2" and the rear will lift 1.5". Am I able to add the RC 2" lift spacers on these without any issues? Also, what springs should I run on the front struts...
  3. bilstein 5100 vs 4600 (for superlift)

    Suspension / Lifts
    Hi guys, this month I might make the change over to the superlift from the OME HD and have thrown out my stock shocks (due to lack of storage ? ....) I will need new shocks. I would love some coilovers but dont want to spend that much, so I have narrowed it down to the 4600 and 5100. I do not...
  4. Lift/Shocks

    New Member Section
    I'm obviously new to this site and this might be a dumb question but I'm going to ask it anyway. I just recently ordered the Rocky Road 2.25" Lift (despite some criticism of the company and their slow shipping process) and I am installing it with 265/70/R17 Nitto Terra Grapplers. Being a broke...

  7. Question for lifted XKs: Long term effects of 2" lift?

    Suspension / Lifts
    Hey guys. I just want to get a pulse from owners who've had their XKs lifted for quite some time now, particularly those who are just running a spacer lift. Have there been any long term effects on your XK? Any added stress to your CV joints? Ball joints? Etc. Are spacer lifts ok for long term...
  8. Increasing effectiveness of QTII / QDII

    Performance Modifications
    Hi all, I'm a Commander owner from Canada. I did a lift and tires on my Commander, and feel as though the effectiveness of the "diff locking" system has decreased. So now i'm thinking out loud here.... The differential locking system on both the QuadraTrac II and QuadraDrive II is...
  9. Any input from a commander veteran?

    Suspension / Lifts
    Just bought an 08 5.7 commander and I am looking at lift kits. Was wondering what your opinions are on this lift kit I found on Amazon. It's a 2.5 front and 2 rear. Figured this would level it out. Just wonder if it's a decent product and well made. Here's the link...
  10. Lifted commander on a budget

    Exterior Appearance Mods
    Recently purchased an 06 commander 4.7L and decided to lift and level it and get some bigger tires to fill the gaps. I went with the Rough Country 2" coil spacer lift around $200 shipped to Canada. 1.5" wheel spacers to get the 255/75 R17's some room. Spacers were about $150 and I scored my...

    Suspension / Lifts
    Hey guys, I'm new here. We bought an 08 Jeep Commander Sport V6 4x4 a few months ago for my wife (she's obsessed with Jeeps, you'd like her). It was a big upgrade from her 06 Liberty. Engine isn't exactly fast but it gets the job done, and she's even gotten it up to 19 mpg on the hwy, so she's...

    Hello, I'm new to this forum I have been reading this forum for about 6 months and finally decided to join. I have a question for all of you who have lifted your Commanders. If you all don't mind can you tell me if this lift kit is good? if a 2.5" lift will be noticeable? is it a big...

  15. Video: Rough Country WK Lift Install

    Suspension / Lifts
    So my last video is not viewable in the US or Germany anymore due to me using Bob Marley in the background, so I had to remake it and used a friend's band's music. I threw on some flexing on an RTI ramp at the end as well. Anywho, sorry for the repost, but I have just gotten a lot of messages...

  17. hi-lift?

    Suspension / Lifts
    how do you use a hi-lift jack on a commander because it is plastic around the edges? I think Ive seen them mounted on commanders racks before. if hi-lifts dont work what jack do you recommend for a 4in lifted commander?

    Suspension / Lifts
    How many commanders do you think have a 4inch lift? Obviously a lot less than wranglers. I'm getting one put on soon and wanted to know how unique it is.
