Not the writeup y'all are looking for, but its the best I could do with the circumstances I'm in. Hopefully I get a good "impressions writeup" for y'all after this weekend.

Bought a 2006 wk limited with 5.7 and qd2. I already have a 2006 TJ which has been my only vehicle since 2007. Needed a more family friendly vehicle. Man there's a lot of button,knobs,and accessories in this thing. Even though its the same year as my TJ it's way more plush.

How much did you find the bezel for?

380,000 miles. Just in the last week started experiencing a transmission issue. Sometimes when taking off from a red light, the engine will rev but no movement. Have to put it in park then back in drive and it works again. Would like to figure out the issue before it creates a much larger issue.

Always nice to see updates from you on the mileage! Sucks to hear about the transmission problem, wonder if possibly the clutch pack?

Finally got the OME HD lift installed on the Commander with 1 1/2" spacers. Starting to look like a Jeep.

Looks good! Now just need some bigger tires and good to go! I have always liked the looks of lifted commanders. If I could go back I would most likely try to find a Commander in black with the saddle brown colored interior

I am not sure really what it could be, since the transmission seems to be very "electronical".

One time, I tore apart my A04D transmission from my ford truck, and was able to successfully rebuild it on my own with never have doing it before. But I don't think I will even try with this transmission.

In worst case scenario, I can get a transmission from a junkyard with about 100-150,000 miles on them for about $700. But I really would like to see how far I can go with the original transmission.

Thanks. Yeah, need to save up for the tires. Planning on new tires before next winter.
