WTB - 2008+ Limited

Anyone wanting to sell their Commander?? Needs to be a 2008+ 5.7 Limited 4x4. Bonus if it's lifted already.


Something like this would do: Used 2008 Jeep Commander Limited Napa CA - VIN: 1J8HG58298C111313 | Near Walnut Creek, Vallejo, The Bay Area

Might buy that one if they come down below $10k. Need to see why the CEL is on.

Buy a Scanner and take it on the test drive might prove invaluable on more than one test drive.

@PokerMunkee ;

Well, here we are 9 days later, I clicked on that link you listed and it's already gone.

If you find a Commander with the options you're looking for, that's in good shape and think that you are going to be able to just sit around and wait for the price to come down - you are sadly mistaken.

Not to mention that in my opinion, I think you'll be pretty hard pressed to find what you're looking for, for under $10,000 - and if you do, there will most likely be something wrong with it - or it will have a ton of miles on it and probably has been beat to death.

You can throw the Kelly Blue Book value out the window with Commanders, if you want a 2008 Limited or newer with a HEMI and low or at least reasonable mileage, that hasn't been beat to death - trust me, you're gonna pay more than $10k for it - unless you're very lucky and happen to come across someone that's desperate to sell - but I doubt it.

There is not enough of them around anymore - and the few people who have them and are willing to sell, know that they are a sought after commodity.

There is a demand for them - and a very short supply.

I think you'll find that the asking prices of the few nice, well-kept ones you might come across, will reflect that.

Maybe in another year or so. the prices will drop down to the range you are looking for.

Just remember, typically, you get what you pay for.

B-U-M-P!

I have $7k cash to buy a Commander! Anyone have one to sell me??

The hunt is on! Let me know if you guys see any good deals!

There is a 2008 500 miles from, has the 4.7 but no factory tow. https://www.ponyexpressdodge.com/inv...tails/46688530

Found a 2009 5.7 Limited in Denver that's beat to hell and back. I know $7-8k isn't much for a 2008 but I'm hoping I get lucky. Looks like they are going for $5-6k at auction.

@PokerMunkee;

I'd suggest giving this search engine a try, this is what I used to find my Commander;

If you are looking for that kind of deal use searchtempest and find a non dealer seller...
Be prepared to wait and jump on anything that looks promising.

Thanx, that's a good site.

I'm going to ask anyone with a 2008+ Commander HEMI if they want to sell it to me. Ha.

Am I out of mind to pay $5,500 for a 2009 loaded 5.7 with 190k miles? I'm thinking about doing it! Talk me out of it or into it!

The only thing I can tell that's missing is the chrome grab handles on the rear, no big deal. Has QD-II, HIDs, tow, etc. I can't believe the seats look so new. Almost every Commander I've seen has rips.

Just noticed it has paint/rust issues above the windshield. BLah! Any easy fix for this? Can you sand it, paint it, and cover it up with something cool/useful?

@PokerMunkee ;

That XK is from Michigan which is in the heart of the rust belt & well known for heavily salting the roads when it snows in the winter time. I'd suggest you take a real good look underneath that vehicle for rust & other hidden damage; You don't need an XK that's going to rust out from under you. I can also see at least one small tear in the driver's side seat if you look real closely at the pics;

Just as I have posted in the new member section I'd do the following if you are really considering buying it;

To Anybody who is Looking to buy a Commander;

You can check to see if all of the factory recalls & campaigns have been completed for the Commander you're looking at (or for the Commander you have already bought) by clicking on the hyperlink below & plugging in the VIN; If you are still looking and have not bought your Commander yet, I strongly recommend you do this BEFORE you buy it;

https://www.mopar.com/en-us/my-vehic...ls/search.html

To get the factory build sheet for the Commander you are looking at, or for the Commander you have already bought, click on the link below and navigate to "Your Vehicle" click on "Equipment Listing" and then enter your VIN number in the box that says "VIN" and hit "Search". The factory build sheet will list all of the factory options & optional preferred equipment packages that your vehicle had installed from the factory when it was built.

Dodge - Contact Us

Alternate Link: https://jeep.custhelp.com/app/jeep/eqlisting_detail/

The difference between a safety recall and a campaign is this; a safety recall pertains to a vehicle problem that is a safety concern; a campaign is a vehicle problem that is not a safety concern, but, pertains to customer satisfaction.

Additionally if you buy a Commander, and it didn't come with an owner's manual, you can download and print a factory owner's manual from this website; here is the link - and again, this is from the same website I listed above, just navigate to the point where you select "year" and "model" of the vehicle you want the owner's manual for:

https://www.mopar.com/jeep/en-us/my-...t-vehicle.html

ALSO: This guy claims to have meticulously maintained this XK since he took ownership of it at 24,000 miles as the 2nd owner and if that's the case, you should not see any recalls or campaigns that have not been completed. If you do, that would give me pause & I'd question his honesty about how well he really maintained it.

Personally, I'd probably stay away from this one - but if it's in close proximity to you, there's no harm in looking.
