Hello,
I just took delivery of a sweet 2006 Commander and was wondering:
I have never seen a oil dipstick like this one- is it supposed to be "twisty"
like a pig's tail? ( :D sorry - couldn't think of any other way to describe it).
Hemi 5.7 motor

I just want to make sure it wasn't vandalized or anything.
Thanks,
Cliff

Welcome to forum :), and congratulation on purchase. you will find alot for good stuff in here.

the oil dipstick is twisty, but its very long. you gust hold it by two hands and push it.

Ok Thanks! I was concerned someone just twisted the heck out of it.

Took delivery of it yesterday, it's a almost fully loaded limited. From what I gather, it's only missing the nav raadio and the dvd system- still reading the manual though.
It has the Quadra trac II system.
I was concerned of making this purchase with everyone seemingly "going green", but am happy thus far!

When I get some time, I will post pics. However, it is not all that fancy, just all original.

Welcome aboard.
Did you make that your user name on purpose or did you just forget to change it?

:D I made it on purpose- I couldn't think of anything Jeep-wise witty(only owning one going on 2 days now).

I was taken aback by the twisty oil dipstick as well during my first fill-up. I don't care for it much if you ask me. But more importantly, welcome to the forum...there is a ton of knowledge here. Enjoy.

I think the twisty-ness of it gives it flexibility to keep it from getting screwed up going in and out.

According to the men's medical journal, having a twisty dipstick is actually quite common.

Like most of us you will get use to it but is can be socially uncomfortble when getting an oil change or in the locker room....

Welcome to the board! :p

Because of it's length it is stronger and less likely to kink as a "twisty". Now, having said that, I will probably break mine.
