I'm the third owner of a 2008 Commander 5.7 Limited 4x4, painted in an ugly Suburban Mom White. So far, I've made the following repairs:
1. Brake pads (they've NEVER been changed!"
2. PCV Hose and valve
3. Radiator upper hose
4. Radiator cap
5. Thermostat
6.1 of 8 cylinder spark plugs (gonna have to buy new spring/boots because they're stuck down in there and I gotta yank 'em out with a needle nose)

Coming up:
1. Fuel pump replacement
2. Hopefully the rest of the spark plugs w/ the new boots
3. Water Pump
4. Fix the Hemi tick in the exhaust manifold
5. Rear pinion seal
6. New calipers (should be here today!)

I'd like to have this run for another 122k miles and it's fun to have as a project vehicle. I'm not a mechanic by a long shot, but I do have a lot of experience working on vehicles and I enjoy learning. In the future, I'd like to do something neat with the interior, e.g. changing LED lights behind the panel, new wheels, new paint color. I'd like to keep everyone updated with my progress along the way. Feel free to ask me any questions if you've had issues with anything listed above!
