Pics of 2008 Commander

I found a 2008 Commander on ebay. Has some good pics of the new MyGig system. New interior door panel color. New steering wheel. The header on the ad says its a 2007 but if you scroll down you will see that it is actually a 2008. And almost $9400 below MSRP !

Re: Pics of 2008 Commander

I don't like the new steering wheel (blah design, not a fan of stalk based cruise controls) or the new wood trim (looks too much like alligator skin) or the new barrel-like center console design (also the fact that it lost eight of the allen head bolts kind of makes the other ones look out of place).

I do like the darker color interior (will be easier to keep clean for the daily driver), do like the hill descent control, do like the MyGig system, etc.

A mix of likes and don't likes.

Re: Pics of 2008 Commander

A limited without the rear grab bars. Are they extra or not available?

They were only standard on the 2006 models--optional on 2007s. So I assume they are continuing with the option.

Re: Pics of 2008 Commander

I like the interior redesign, it cleans it up a lot. I like stalk mounted cruise controls, allows for one-finger operation. I also like the back-lit gauges in the daytime, makes them easier to see, plus the color is easier on the eyes.

I'm surprised that they're already doing discounts on the 2008s since they just came out.

Re: Pics of 2008 Commander

I really like the new interior color, thats what I would have had in mine if would have been available. I guess jeep does listen. I sent Customer service a letter about all the problems we had had with that light color interior on mine. Is that interior color availble in a overland?

I guess it is a matter of opinion but the old button design allows you to use the cruise without removing your hand from the wheel, and to me you would use the cruise buttons more than the evic buttons.

I haven't had a problem with the light color (of course my seats and center console are Saddle Brown). I do like the new color too though.

That's exactly the way I feel about it.

Re: Pics of 2008 Commander

I prefer the contrasting colors in the 06 and 07 models to the monotone in the 08. I think the light contrasting with the dark gives a more upscale look. The light color is harder to keep clean but looks more elegant--JMO.
