Well, when the weather clears up, the following pieces will be added to my commander.

1. Chrome Lower Chin bar (like on Limited)
2. Chrome trim on Grill. This isnt a full chrome grill, but a snap in piece that fills the grill openings. I diddnt want a full chrome, but wanted to brighten things up a little.
3. Rectangular (1"X3") reflectors on rear bumper. I've seen the Euro Models and really liked the rear lights/reflectors, and found perfect reflectors to add to the rear bumber. They are off an 05 Yamaha Motorcycle. I took them off the Rear Fender/side reflector. They look great, and with the heavy duty 3M exterior trim tape should stay on.
4. 1/4" Red Pinstripe on Door Rub Strips. Will make it liik like the strip that was on the old Cherokee Sport.
5. Black Carbon Fiber Dash Kit. I will leave the Aluminum plate, but add the pieces to teh upper dash, console, and door applications.

These are small mods that I've wanted to do for a while. Will post pics when I/as do these. I've got it all except for the Dash kit, which is in the mail :D

I also plan in order:
1. 3" Rock Krawler Lift
2. Larger Tires
3. Borla SS Exhaust
4. 4X Guard Sliders
5. Custom Mounted Roof Basket with lights

I just purchased my 2006 4.7 Limited two weeks ago. I replaced the fuel filler cap with the Mopar Chrome one. I also ordered the Romik Chrome Grille & Taillight Guards. Next will be some form of a lift and Rocky Road Supersliders. Just enough 4x4 capability with the right amount of bling for rollin through the hood in Irvine, CA! :)

OK, here are pics of the Grill and Chin bar.

I like the changes. Here is a pic before and after. One thing that suprised me was that the chin piece was an ABS chrome plated item. I guess I just assumed this would be real metal, and not plastic.... foolish man I am....

Look to the left of the Commander and you will see a glimpse of my toy........... Cant wait for Spring ;-)

Looks great. I love the chrome on a black one. It really stands out nicely. I think I have all the extras you can have as far as chrome goes. But, one never knows, I wish they made the insert for the mirrors to make them look better. Maybe someday soon they will.

It looks good. Well done.
Although I can't wait to see the reflectors you mentioned.
Did those too.

I'm happy with these, and once I get the grab handles for the back, and a chrome tipon the exhaust, that will be all the chrome I put on it. I much perfer a polished aluminum or metal look to the bling. I was looking for individual chrome rings for the grill openings, but couldnt find them. I think it brightens up the grill just enough, but not too much.

Never mind. Just saw it listed under your commander. Nice car.
Yeah, I love that car, is 99% stock, all original. Paint is at its end, but is mechanically sound. One day, I'd really like to moderize and update it with better suspension parts, bushings, brakes, etc. and drop in a modern crate motor and EFI, but for now, she is a testament to the last of what an American Car was. I think the G Bodies were some of the last Bodies by Fisher.

There are some chrome grill inserts on ebay. Item # 270091816048
Thanks, but that is exactly what I got :D What I was hoping for was just individual rings that would fill just the inside ring of the openings, and leave the black showing between. I am happy with what I have though, and it looks great.
