Wow, beautiful backdrop in the Commander pic. I would love to live somewhere like that, during the summer of course. I get enough snow in Michigan and miss Florida soo bad this time of year. Some nice toys you got there too. Thanks for sharing.

I figured you would have a newer snow machine... what is that a 1980s Yamaha Phaser (I think thats what they were called been a few days since I seen one)

Nice collection by way thanks for sharing.

Updates couple new items:
1. Fog lights behind the grille
2. Rear storage box (dont laugh im better with steel than wood and its what i had laying around) after battleing with all the camping gear and the new dog i decided the commanders dont have enough space with the rear seats in.
3. i am currently building a dog barrier for the back ill have pics when its done

hopefully i will be ordering my wheel spacers, and lift next week...crossing my fingers.:stickpoke:

Really nice collection of toys you got. Sorry if this a newb question (not too familiar with bikes) but is there a particular reason why the headlights are taped up in the picture of you riding the bike?

My guess is that it is a street legal bike and the tape is to prevent shattering of the lens if a rock gets thrown up, or plastic shards being thrown if he crashes... pssibly to cut down on the glare on the front as well. These are my guesses... am I close at all?

NO PROB i never mind answer any questions about bikes...the reason they are taped up is because i was running my road bike on the track...in canada we have running lights (headlights stay on constantly) when your on the track and your trying to corner and you look behind and see a set a PIAAs staring at you it tends to blind people...

and yes commander4lyfe was right it also seconds as a prtection issue...not so much to keep chips out but if you crash it keeps the lens together so you dont have peices of sharp headlight from impailing others tires

Finally got around to throwing in new plugs...i was doing the plugs in my Chevy so i picked up the snowmanders plugs aswell

i chose the Bosch Platinum plus plugs simple reason being i have good luck with bosch and they were a great mid grade plug at $8.99 a pair....

I included a picture of the factory plugs...they look nasty...my 4.7L has 55,345 kms on it as of time of plug replacement

met up with Texel for the new spacers and installed them i like the new stance... the 1/2" spacers lifted the commander a total of 1 1/4" which now puts the front 1/4" higher than the rear...now my rear tire pressure is a lil lower than the front and i meassured the front immediately after installing the lift so after driving for a bit the suspension should settle in and im hoping that 1/4" will drop a bit more...
