between the lift and wheels/tires, the proportions on the whole truck look great. How much lift did you add? What size wheels?

The clear mask was installed on the front bumper, grill, headlights and fog lights, chrome bottom piece, and the first 18" of the hood and front fenders. It took the installer 6 hours at my home. I would not tackle this after watching him. He came highly recommended to me.

when you change tire height it will throw off your speedometer. going to a taller tire is equal to reducing your rear end ratio, thus lowering your RPM at equal speeds.
if i remember right the speedo will read a slower MPH then you are actually going when running a larger tire.

This is correct. Unless you are going to 33 inch or greater tires you probably get away without calibrating.

Are the Silverstars a big improvement over the stock XK bulbs? I know when I switched to them in my Cherokee it was a big improvement.

They made a huge difference, I was pleasantly surprised.

Although I not certain, I was concerned with possible warranty issues being that the odometer would not be correct.

Hmm guess I know what I will be doing whenever I get a free moment this week or next. Do you know of anyone who carries the 9006SU Silverstar ULTRA bulb (as opposed to the 9006ST Silverstar bulb).

Also, did you replace your fog lights too?

But how did you recalibrate it? I know the dealer can only recalibrate for the factory size tires and I haven't seen any aftermarket boxes out for the Commander yet.

I went to the Sylvania website and looked up a local dealer. Yes I did replace the foglights.

The dealer service dept. did it, I didn't see them. I intended to varify it with my gps today but forgot to get it out of the rv.
