Thumbs up New Commander owner. Saying Hello!

Hello All,

Just picked up a 2010 Limited with a Hemi. A long vehicle search for a reliable 3rd car, and plenty of room led us to the commander. I had actually been actively searching for an awd hemi dodge magnum wagon, and in a perfect world the wife and i really wanted a new durango, but we are building a house, and i already have a ram, and she has a charger, so another big car payment wasn't happening. After looking at a bunch of magnums (that were all beat to death) we started to consider older durango's, aspens, and the commander. This one is super clean, and the most loaded vehicle i have ever owned. Seems everyone that has them loves them, so looking forward to being part of the community!

No problem at all @5.7Jeep ;

Yep, I think you will be very happy with your XK.

The Hemi of course is great and the 3.73 gears are great for low end torque when off-roading and of course, it gives you nice acceleration off the line when you are in the street - this is one feature I'm very glad that Big Blue had when I picked her up.
