Those tires will be fine with a 2 inch lift, you shouldn't need to do any other modifications.

Those are the same size tires I'm running.

But then again, with the stock rims, I'm not sure because I don't know what the back-spacing is on the stock rims.

My rims have 5.5 inch back-spacing.

I looked on the super lift website and it shows the stock rims with approximately 6.5" set back.. So I should be ok with the 265/70R's..Thanks for the info fellas...Can't wait to put it together and try it out..

I recently put a OME lift on mine and have 265/70r17 with 1.5" spacers. They fit fine but do rub slightly on the fender well behind the tires at full or near full turn. It isn't bad though. I will probably do the fender well mod when it warms up again.

Hey Grumpy, have you read this thread?

http://www.jeepcommander.com/forums/5-general-commander-discussion/50641-chrysler-jeep-p73-recall-4.html

FYI, the P73 campaign is for Commanders with the the Quadra-Trac II & Quadra-Drive II 4WD systems which both use the NV245 transfer case.

If you like, you can read more about it here:

Thanks Big Blue..I have read both posts and about 50 others..til my eyes are crossing!! Mine has been flashed with both codes and still has problem...When I bought it it worked fine but within a week got the dash message and it failed to engage, I tried the fuse trick a bunch of times which failed to work..I figure the fellow I purchased it from had done that.. I'm taking it to dealership tomorrow..I have read where flashing it and clearing 3 times in a row can have a better chance of holding.. I haven't read anywhere that anyone has come up with a final cure for this problem...If you know one please inform me..Thanks

Grumpy - it may very well be that your transfer case actuator motor has actually gone bad and needs to be replaced.

That would be the most likely cause of not being able to shift into 4-LOW if you have already had the P73 campaign completed.

Unfortunately, that's about a $700.00 repair if you have it done at the dealership.
