Hello, just wanted to say Hello to everyone on the fourm. I recently purchased a 2009 XK Limited w/ a 5.7 HEMI and QD II. This isn't my first Jeep, I traded in my 2001 WJ w/ 4.7, Selec-Trac and Upcountry springs in on this Commander. I wanted to hold on to the WJ, but it just had to many issues to correct and 215K miles.

Anyhow I look foward to being able to pick your brains for information on future up grades. I've already have learned a lot from reading thru the fourm.

Just update (and builded up my post count) in the ~year and half since i purchased my Commander, I have upgraded the suspension with 2" Rough Country lift, and Bilstein strut/shocks at all 4 corners, added 1.25" wheels spacers and this week put on 18x8 Jeep Unlimited 8 spoke polished rims (Craigs List $125 for all 5 rims) with Bridgestone new Revo 3's 265/60-18. I also just put on an aFe cold air intake this week and plan to redo the exhaust next week with a Flowmaster muffler.

@AHSprite;

Yeah, I know I haven't posted a lot, but I have used this fourm to research any mods that I've wanted to do before doing and I do appreciate the knowledge found on the pages.
I hope to post some pics soon, just need to get them downloaded off the phone to the desktop/tablet.

In response to Badjuju`s inquiry;

I'm liking the aFe CAI so far, I like the fact it uses the lower part of the stock box, cover that comes with it is a nice touch. I think that the way the sensor attaches could be better. Does have a note to it when you get on the gas.
