Right now its getting a bigger turbo put in, the one in the picture kicked the bucket and started smoking. The interior is much different now as well, more guages, and custom paint on the dash/door panels.... I will post new pics as soon as I get a hold of my camera.

Dude! I love the Commando (both your's and commandos in general)! Very underrated as Jeeps go - not sure why. They look great! I'd give my left arm (but not my right, I need that to shift into 4wd) for a commando to do a frame up resto on...

Great rig!
