Hello fellow Commander enthusiasts! My name is Andy, I've been in my '06 for several years now, only recently became a member, but have been gleaning this site since I parked it in the driveway. Lots of good stuff here!

Prepping for a coast to coast, a little overland, a little highway, all America!

My Commander was a fleet model, got a great deal on it, assumed it was well taken care of. I call it a base model because even after looking at the build sheet it seems to be without an official trim. It's got just about all the toys, from nav, heated leather buckets and power pedals to rear ac/heat, way more jeep than I was originally shopping for.

I truly believe that the Commander is an incredibly unique piece of Jeep lineage. Glad they're still around, and glad to see that people are still picking them up and putting them to work/play.

I'm in Jacksonville, FL, quite a few Commanders here. If you're one of those and on the site, drop me a line...

Some pictures, just got my KENDA Klevers on, long story, great tires!

Ha, funny stuff Arapahoe! Thanks everyone for the welcome! Kinda' proud of the rack to be honest, Smittybuilt Defender less 12 inches. Mounted to my rails with 3 inch Unistrut pipe hangers and some other Home Depot goodies, good fit and rock solid.

Thanks again for the welcome!

I like how your rear grab handles are blacked out. Were those like that when you bought it, or did you do that yourself?

I added the handles, painted them prior to installing. It's a lot easier to pop the chrome off when they're not on the Jeep.

Love the look Zan! "all purpose", reading my mind. Still have plans to light up my rack and add a few other things, but trying to keep it low profile. I see you're creek crossing, what's your lift?
It's just a 2 1/2 in level on 31's
