It's a freakin 4x4 5.7L HEMI nav, backup camera saddle interior, and whatnot. everything but rear DVD. ( That's a low ball big time)

Well KBB trade for my 06 with 29,000 miles is $18,700. Retail is $28,100.
They should give you more for yours...
They give you like $18,000 then turn around and sell it for $28,000. How do you think they make money? It really sucks though! Ten Grand Difference!

$16,500 is too low, they should have offered you around $22,000. Maybe they saw the mods and thought it would be too hard to get rid of, considering it is set up for a more specified market.

Big- I said nothing to them over the phone about it being heavily modded. SO in there eyes, this was just a stock 5.7L Commander. Oh well...

You're better off trying to sale it yourself.

5.7 limited loaded 4x4 just bought

Hi guys new to the forum. I just purchased a 2006 5.7 limited 4x4 Commander loaded, has the optional DVD players in the drivers seat head-rest and NAV. Got the Sirrus radio going, I use to have XM and I find Sirrus much better on how they group their music. Anyway, I have found that there is no line level input for my ipod, is this a easy aftermarket add-on, or is it there and I can't find it. Sorry if I have posted in a wrong thread. really like the Jeep- this is my first Jeep.

I second that!!! Alot of people are into modding cars the way your Commander is and I'm sure you would get a decent offer for it!! Way more than a trade-in!!! They wouldn't have to do much modding and pay for it- it's already done!!!
