i am looking to do a whole lot to my commander.

1. get a hitch. (but they are on back order. and i need one in the bumper so i dont lose clearance) although, if i get the tire carrier that fastens onto the hitch, i wont mind having it below the bumper, as i DO really need a hitch.

2. get a tire carrier to go on hitch. if i cant find one under $400, then im looking to fab my own. any tips?

3. side body trim. (does anyone know a good way/technique to paint them?) i want to paint them chrome. so it looks like the limited.*

4. i have a 2.25" lift, but im looking for better. thinking maybe 4", but i have a 3.7L and i think it will be too tall to be able to work with this size lift.

5. i want to get new gear ratios. to match the 4.7L so i will have better torque and power. since i only have the 3.7L and having to push my larger tires is hard on it. i dont mind the gas mileage, although its 11.5 right now. if i got new gears, im pretty sure that it would help boost it up back to its original. and if i got the new gear ratio, i could then handle the 4" lift much better.

6. looking to fab my own front hitch, as buying special hitch parts is FAR too expensive. anyone know a good way to do it? (without cutting the front metal shaft under fascia)

7. due to the amount of scratches i obtained thanks to an ex girlfriend...i am looking for either a new paint job or to get it rhino lined. anyone know the prices for that? whole car repainted.

8. LED rear tail lights

9. rear tail light guards

10. fabricate something to go in the spare tire spot? any suggestions? right now its just a blank spot.

11. i have a subwoofer enclosure i made with a spot to open and put things inside. (little 2footx1footx8inches) but i am selling my sub box to bman102492 on here (as his jeep is a exact replica as mine. (no joke)

12. since i have super swampers, im looking for new street tires and then street rims. but they still have to look good. looking at nitto dune grapplers with 20" rockstars.

13. i have a 2.25" lift now. and can fit 31" tires, but i need new shocks, as i still have the stock ones. my friend (bman102492) has the same lift, and he got the shocks that came with it, and his front is about an inch lower than mine. and his backside is about half an inch higher. he also has a v8, as i have a v6. you would think my v6 coils would lower me more.

IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS FEEL FREE TO LET ME KNOW. I AM LOOKING TO MAKE THIS CAR AMAZING AND WILL TEST ANYTHING YOU ASK (THATS REASONABLE)
