08/29 Q/A Session - Commander

This Q/A Topic: Jeep Commander

· Direct your questions to the JeepEngineers team

· Let the JeepEngineers team supply the answers

· Keep all questions on topic and related to the Jeep Brand. Off-topic posts run the risk of being removed by forum moderators

· Limit each post to one question. This makes it a lot easier for us to manage during the session and a lot easier for readers to digest afterwards.

· Review existing posts to avoid repeat questions.

· Questions aren’t answered in order of post; you’ll need to allow some time for us to respond.

· There is no need to repost a question. At the end of the session, we check for unanswered posts. An answer will be posted in reply IF the question is on topic and is not redundant.

· If you have something to say to one another we ask that you communicate via PM or within another thread discussion.

· We can’t answer questions regarding Specific Dealer concerns or Future Products

· We’ll do our best to help, but we are not always able to diagnose specific vehicle issues over the internet


Go ahead and post your questions!!

Could you describe how the Quadra Track II transfer case functions? (There isn’t a lot of info out there on how it works.) In particular does it still function as a differential in low range?

Was the commander designed with the cherokee in mind? or was this a totally unrelated vehicle

Will 2008 be the last year of the Commander?

The QuadraTrac II transfer case is an NV245 and is used in the Commander and Grand Cherokee. It is the same transfer case used in the QuadraDrive II system.

In high range it has a 48/52 torque split front to rear. When slip is sensed it uses an electric motor to drive a clutch pack together which locks the front and rear driveshafts together. In low range the clutch is locked all the time.

There is a brief description of all the Jeep 4x4 systems on Jeep.com Jeep.com/4x4

With any new Jeep vehicle, we look at our heritage and use cues that we think represent the brand and fit that particular vehicle. Note though that the Commander is much larger than the Cherokee and features 3 rows of seating, something the Cherokee never offered, so of course it was not intended to be a direct replacement.

Do the different HVAC systems (auto vs manual)have unique ducting/doors or is the primary difference the controllers themselves?

I still cannot comment on future offerings. The CRD Commander is offered in export markets currently.

I'm not knowledgeable at all about the commander but is their a factory "non-stock" suspension lift that is offered with a certain package? (comparble to rubi TJ's and/or "going back" up-country xj's)

Also I think it's awesome you peeps come on here w/these Q/A's. Rock on!

If an hvac controller is replaced does it need to be connected to a dealer computer to make the jeep recognize the new one?
