Awesome. Thanks guys.

And keeping it clean won't be too bad... thats why i like white vehicles, they always look clean. Should also be a lot easier to keep clean than my crew cab sierra! :icon_lol:

I agree!

Got any shots of yours muddy? Clicked your two links but the thread has all clean pics and the youtube video is someone else...
I wish man it's been raining crazy for weeks here. Monday was the first time I washed mine in about a 2 months and thats because we camped at the beach and the film you get from the ocean is nasty. check these links out I was trying to get dirty but rain again washed my badges I mean mud off.

Here is a link to the thread from our trip last month has pics and vids in it.

Awesome pics/vids.

Now I really miss offroading! I used to go all the time but have been out of the game for the past few years.

Planning on building another trail rig in the near future... never even considered lifting/wheeling the commander; i have a feeling you guys are going to be a bad influence! :eek3:

This was my "most recent" trail rig/DD











The "real" plan is to get a 4-door wrangler once our kids get a bit older, then turn that into our weekend warrior/trail riding vehicle.

I like them even better without the center caps. I took them off for winter and think they look better without the chrome plated plastic caps.

I just need to spray my hubs black the next time I do a rotation.

Nothing special... just some shots I snapped today before riding.



Nice Fisher... I just baught a 2011 Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc 29er and love it. I'm way out of trail shape but, at least my riding ability is still there. Getting back to MTBing after a 10 year absence from the sport.

Thanks man. Gotta love the 29ers :)

Bikes are as bad as trucks..... I've probably spent more money modding my bike than I have on the commander so far! :lol: I think my bike wheels were the same price as my XD's.
