We purchased our XK earlier in October after I sold my '06 WRX. The plan was to find the wife a new DD rig and I would drive our '08 Wrangler Unlimited X. I spent many months searching and searching around Idaho for Jeeps, first we were looking at WK2 Grand Cherokees but they were just too expensive for us. After tons of convincing the wife, she decided she could
like a Commander as long as it was lifted...Well awesome, I love the Commander and wanted one and knew she was going to like it and I found this beauty 250mi away.
2007 Jeep Commander Overland
Rear airbag system
MOPAR bull bar
Tinted tails and signals
I scored and found her already lifted and equipped with airbags, DVD system, NAV, all the good stuff. Had about 74,000mi, which isn't terrible, but I gave it as good an inspection as I knew how to. The sway bar link bolt on the driver's side was loose and it made a nasty popping noise every so often...Nothing a little WD-40 and a big socket wrench couldn't fix.
The best part is I sold my car, paid off our Wrangler and now have cheaper monthly payments on the Commander, plus had enough extra cash to put the badly needed new wheels and tires on. This is a mountain Jeep, it's going to see snow, crap roads and needs to be battle ready to keep our family safe.
Before: 255/70R18 on Sahara Gladiators
After: 285/70R17 BFG Mud Terrain KM2s on Pro Comp Series 5001 17x9, 4.75" BS and 6.6 Offset
We both love the Commander a ton and argue over who gets to drive, haha. It has it's little Chrysler quirks, like they all seem to, but it's perfect for us. Hopefully it serves it's purpose for quite a while!
