Commander test mule for sale?

Check out this Commander on Ebay. This almost has to be a former test mule Commander. It is located in the Detroit area. No VIN or anything. It could be a project for someone.

Re: Commander test mule for sale?

Doubt it was a test mule, most of those are destroyed as the manufacturer does not want any liability from them.

To me, this vehicle is probably stolen and stripped and then someone A.) either found it and got an abandoned vehicle claim on it or B.) has the balls to sell a vehicle they stole and will shortly be sharing a bunk with Bubba in the state pen.

Re: Commander test mule for sale?

I was looking at the pictures. This must be some kind of company vehicle that was supposed to be destroyed. Do you notice the lack of Jeep emblems on it both front and rear? Also notice the chrome piece under the front bumper. Those are only on limited's. Was this a limited or not? Painted grills only on a sport/base model. Wheel flares are off a sport model. Those wheels look like those seen on some of the spy photos during the months leading up to the Commander be released.

Re: Commander test mule for sale?

Did you see how clean it was underneath - it doesn't look like a test mule. I wonder if it was a flood damaged car from a dealer lot somewhere. The things missing are the items that would've been damaged in a flood.

That doesn;t explain the lack of a VIN though.

No. The limited had the flares with the fake allen bolts.
