Unless it is a daily driver that you never take off road and the gas is killing you financially, I would hold on to it. There are better ways to save money and you would certainly take a loss on selling a XK in todays climate.

I'd say you probably WOULD take a loss and then when prices come back down, you'd be kicking yourself.

With all the mods you've done to your commander, your enjoying it too much to get rid of it. But if it was just a daily highway driver for you, i'd consider trading it. But to me, that doesn't look like that applies.

Keep It!!

Dude I was in the same boat. My wife had a LandRover Discovery which she used as a daily driver and gas was ridiculous especially when Premium gas was required.

Anyways long story short - I got rid of the LandRover and got a 08 Jetta for her and sold my Jeep JK Unlimited and bought my Commander.

Even though my Commander gets about 13K per gallon, we only use it on weekends and family outing. My commute to the train station is about 2 miles from my home so I use the Commander. The Commander seems to be so much safer and solid for my family especially when I have two little ones in the truck.

I'm planning on keeping my Commander until my kids go to college (15 years to go)


Good Luck

This will be unpopular here, but if you can get what you need out of the Commander, you can't beat the Magnum SXT.

Now is probably the worse time to sell. Dealers are starting to refuse SUVs as trade-ins and the average Joe on the street will most likely give you a lowball offer to take your "gas guzzler" off your hands. If I were you, I'd keep it.
