The idea is this little box amplifies the signal (input or output) or tricks the PCM into open/closing the Drive-by-Wire (DBW) throttle faster.
I remember someone posting on this forum a while ago he got one of these devices for his Commander and loved it, much better throttle response.
Personally, I have a V6 4x4, and occasionally I find the throttle response to be a little lacking, so I could see one of these devices, if they work, making some improvements. The HEMI, I wouldn't be surprised the extra low end torque make the engine more responsive than the V6 and it doesn't really make a noticeable difference in the throttle response.
Understandable. Maybe I'll try to call them and ask. But they do have a 14 day no questions asked money back refund. I'm telling you from personal experience that you will be pleasantly surprised.https://www.pedalcommander.com/product-category/4-7l-v8-235-hp-jeep-commander-2006-2010/
I hesitantly went to pedalcommander's website - just because I don't like to arbitrarily dismiss anything without at least taking a look;
A couple of items that concern me right out of the gate;
They only list Commanders as (Gen 1) 2007-2010; the 2006 model year is not even listed;
When I select my engine which is a 2008 Flex Fuel 4.7L it shows it as putting out 235HP which is what the regular gas 4.7L put out - in 2006 & 2007. In 2008 the 4.7L jumped up to 305HP from the factory due to a redesigned intake and the addition of an extra spark plug per cylinder.
The fact that pedal commander's website doesn't reflect any changes at all for the 2008-2010 4.7L engines increased HP makes me question if they even have a product that is accurately designed & calibrated for my engine.
The price doesn't bother me at all - but the inaccurate information displayed on their website does.
I'm skeptical at best.
I don't doubt that their product has worked well for you.Understandable. Maybe I'll try to call them and ask. But they do have a 14 day no questions asked money back refund. I'm telling you from personal experience that you will be pleasantly surprised.
