Hi everyone. As some of you may know I'm getting rid of my commander so I thought someone might benefit from my loss.

CrunchyWizard and I spend the day Saturday swapping out lift kits and tires. Here's a little video that I made while we worked.

That was very cool. A good match of music and video. I especially like the teaser for coming attractions in December. Good job.

Nice of you to help out a brother.

Thank you! My first time with Microsoft Movie Maker. I've done a bit of sound editing before as well as pairing up music to audio books (the ex's).

I've got to publicly thank CommanderChaos for being an incredibly kind and GENEROUS person.

We made a deal on the armor (except for the front skid plate that [email protected] beat me to :)) and he essentially GAVE me the lift/tires/spacers/wheels in exchange for my tires/wheels. I did give him a small amount over the price of the armor - not enough, but what I could afford - just because I couldn't just TAKE the stuff. Gabe even argued about taking that. If the world was made up of more people like him, we wouldn't have the problems we've got. I can't say enough about the man.

On another note; If I had to do it again, I'd seriously invest in a good impact wrench and some good impact sockets. I'm still hurting in places I didn't know I'd *used* Saturday... A couple of those nuts/bolts fought me for every degree of turn coming off. It's not obvious in the video, but I befriended a four-foot length of pipe part way through the front-end :eek:rangehat:

And, awesome job on the video!

You are welcome and thank you for the kind words! I think it's time for you to update your signature on the forum though.

Well Gabe it is a shame what happened. I hope the future holds something brighter for you.

Crunchy, you are one lucky guy. Can't wait to see the results in person at JeepSkool.

If you ever want to sell it, please let me know. I've always like the Grand Wagoneer but never owned one.
