Just lifted my commander 06 jsut a Rocky Road 2.25 inch kit and some Firestone Destination Mud Terrain 265/70/17... yes they do rub by a hair... Yes I will need some spacers.. And Yes they are somewhat to pretty damn noisy compared to the last ones.. and yes they hurt my gas mileage..:D

Here are some before and after pics... seems like a subtle lift but in all reality its a great lift size, there is alot more clearance under the vehicle if you notice now..

Looks good, the spacer will help a lot. I'm going to upgrade to the AEV Pintler wheels when I have the cash.

Looks great. Doesn't look like a lowrider anymore. Where are you located?

I have the AEV wheels and they are great. I almost put the same tires on my, but I went with the Revos instead. I kick myself all the time about not getting MT's. The Revos are great, but I plan on getting out more in the dirt.

Thanks for the Info on the AEV.. yeah I definitely want to get the AEV wheels now. I also do want to take the commander on trails but no rock bashing like i do with the wrangler if you know what I mean.. just not alot of dirt around my area.. Plus i think the commander will be great getting me to camp or to alot of mountain bike trails that the VW guys cant get to if you know what I mean... its going to be great! I love it - this is the way the commander should of looked like from the factory... more people would of bought it..

Uber! I love the way your commander looks, I have been looking at that since before I got my lift done. Your Jeep looks kinda like a land rover with your set up.. I like that look alot..

Just for kicks here is a pic of how bad the tire is rubbing.. It seems that only one of the alternating lugs are hitting it..

And here are other pics just cause I was bored..



OH GEEZ SORRY THE PICS ARE HUGE!

Definitely need to get some spacers if you are thinking about it. I have the 1.25 inch and they work well. No rubbing and wider stance.
