RIP my faithful Commander

On Monday I just had the OME full 2in lift done with all new mounting hardware installed, along with RRO UCA's, and RRO super sliders. I also redid the entire cooling system over the weekend new h20 pump, hoses, theremostat,serp belt and tension. By Thursday night the fun was over with some a**hole turned left in front of my son and totaled it, drivers side destroyed and engine caught fire with the flames going over the roof of the Commander. Luckily my son only came out of it with a slight concusion from sitting the drivers side window. Hadn't even gotten it off road yet with the new setup.

Glad to hear your kid wasn't hurt. Looks like he found the commando's weak spot there.

My condolences.

I'm glad your son is OK. It proves how safe the XK is, though!

Strip out what parts you can and start shopping for another one!

After all that work, and not even have a chance to enjoy it or try her off road.

But the main thing is that no one was hurt very bad.

Looks like it could be a solid parts vehicle, if you have a place to store it !
Did your Commander have side air bags, just curious ?

Good luck, and glad you son wasn't hurt any worse than he was...

All Commanders have side curtain air bags.

The side air bags never went off for some reason, if them had he wouldn't have smacked his head on the drivers side window.
