I did this late last summer, but here we go, I swaped out to an all black grille, but I wanted crome inserts, but most I found were way to big, I like the small ones, I also got ahold of Commander spare rims and put them on. I also put on Bilstiens. Today I had to put it in the shop again for another glowplug, 4th one less than 40K on truck.

Where's you find that?

OT drove around in the snow for an hour or so running errands with the wife before they plowed the main roads.

Glow plugs are pretty simple if you wanted to try them yourself and less than $20 each

Commander now has working offroad lights



Switch hidden inside the pocket

Light output


Not bad for $40 worth of lights.

How bright are the bulbs? The stock lights are so dim.

Installed the s4xc shackle mounts + shackles. Once again I am extremely impressed with the quality of the s4xc products and I love the look of them! I also kept the air dam off for now to see how I like it.



I also found some minor fender damage in my wheel well. It was missing the two rivets there as well. I replaced them with a machine screw, washer, and a well nut (an idea I saw somewhere on here, thanks whoever that was!!!)

Did you install them yourself? What brand are they? Did you use locktite?

Looks great! Did you yours come with the sandwich plate too? I don't know if they changed the design after I bought mine or just forgot to include include it.

Hmm all I used was the mount, 3 washers, 3 bolts, and 3 nuts on each. I'm not sure what the sandwich plate is, but I think I recall some discussion about it a few days (or weeks) ago. I remember someone discussing that they didn't get some pieces that another member had a picture of...was this you? If so, I kinda remember what those pieces looked like and I did not receive anything like it.
