Looks great. Must feel good too. I can't wait to get mine done, and it's been a long wait so far. I've got the kit, and should soon have the UCA's, but still haven't got the rims and tires. Having some issues figuring out what rims will work. Happy Motoring!

Come to Camp Commander in Colorado and maybe you will win the set of Rubicon Wheels that are being given away. They are the same as the ones above.

with the Rubi wheels you don't need heavy spidertrax!

Just for reference, I have 255/75R17 on 17x7.5 with 44.45mm offset. Has a 32" diameter and about a 10" high sidewall

IMO: A lift is worthless without bigger tires....unless done for water x-ings.

good thing is you can drive before you buy....give me a call I get out of work around 4:30-5pm at the UVA Research park, I usually go home down 53 by Monticello.

I ran the M/T on my Cherokee. How do they feel on the Commander. I cant decide if I want the A/T or the M/T. I love the look of the M/T, but may not like the ride and noise so much.
I run the M/T and do not think that the noise is bad at all. I really do not even notice it.

Where did you take those pics? Looks like up in the natl forest? Are you still leaving the end of July? We are having a camp in August up in the forest outside Harrisonburg if you are still here.

The pics were taken on this trail. hardly a challenge, but a decent nature trail for the kids...
