We have 43k on our 2008, 4.7 V8 xk. Just replaced the OEM Fortera's w. Falken Rocky Mountain AT's. No major problems so far.....just regular maintenance. The wife and kids love it. Easy to pick out of a crowd of "look a like" SUV's. Plenty of power. MPG's a little low (15 mpg combined). A much better step up from my old '98 Explorer!
I'm happy with my 07 Commander with 4.7 V8. It's true the power went up in 08, but you also have 8 more spark plugs for a total of 16. Too much to worry about something going wrong. My Jeep has towed my 6,000 lb. travel trailer with no problem. I replaced a water pump at about 60k miles and had a problem with the heated seats in the beginning where they had to replace a module on the warranty. Gas mileage isn't great, but vehicle is comfortable and the QII is extremely capable.

I have an 06 V8 limited and I love it, I didn't buy it for gas mileage, but when it comes to carry 4 kids, groceries, camping, muddin, or putting cartoons in the DVD player on long drives.... It's better than a mini van and I love it.
