I didn't buy the Commander to sit in the driveway and dream about going off road. Or worry about getting any little ding and scratch.

So...

I was going to get one of those. does it work well with the XK?
does that one tell the degree of angle?
and did you use it the other day when you made those videos of the hill climb? how steep was that climb?

They work great. It's a universal mount thing, you can use it in any vehicle.

The gully hill we climbed out was about 30 degrees. Here's a shot Mike took as we were coming back down a 500' hill. It was bad enough, besides being 1000 yards to the top.

Looks like you were having a good time!
Ahhh yes, the pin striping along the sides...I remember my first time in the thick woods. So many scratches and so many broken branches collected in the roof rack.
