Some pics of my Commander. Gonna have to get some updated ones this weekend. I put the extention on the roof rack, and picked up a deflector for the front. I also got some spidertrax wheel spacers coming tomorrow. Have to figure out a way to get those on w/o the Mrs. seeing!!! More pics to come.

Tossed a pic of my chopper in there also.

Put the spacers on today, Should have taken before pics I guess, oh well. Prolly pick that lift kit up next month. Get it in before it gets to cold here in Chicago. I added a wind deflector to my roof basket, had to make some spacers to create an angle in it to deflect the wind better.

Didnt do the lift last weekend, had a lug nut that got stripped so i had to take it to get removed, so I held off till this weekend. From the time I pulled up at my brothers, to the time we packed up and I went home was around 4 hours. Getting to dark out for pics but will put them up tomorrow.

Does any one know if the front end will settle, or lower some eventually. it appears to sit higher up front that the back. Old RC lift with front spacer. Back ground to fender well is 35 both sides, front is 36. Alignment scheduled for tues morning.

Looks good man! I thought the guard would've been closer to the front fascia not allowing space to leave the front plate, I'd rather leave the plate where it is if you can still see it like you did. I haven't had a chance to install mine but will definitely do it sometime this weekend, I can't wait.

Question about the front guard (skid plate)- do you have to remove it to get to the oil filter?
