I've had my commander for over a year now, started off chrome. Now he's blacked out. It's a limited trim. 5.7L HEMI V8 with a power turbo charger. there's a 2" lift on this bad boy. Put around 10k miles in this past year. I have a muffler delete and still get around 11.4 mpg lol. Here is some pictures, I don't take much but here is what i found!

@JacobHemi;

I can see your pics fine - good looking Commander - but it certainly does not look like it has a 2 inch lift - it looks like it's at stock ride height to me.

Hi Mod,

lol, seems odd that you say that because numerous people have also noticed it. It specifically states 2inch lift on the paperwork when i purchased the vehicle, along with other mods. I thought there was spacers or something on it. I'm glad you mentioned that! I am definitely going to look into that.

It looks to me like you are still running the stock tire size P245/65R17's - and if you are, you would have a lot more space between the tires and the wheel wells if you had a 2 inch lift installed.

I think they snockered you if they gave you paperwork saying that your XK has a 2 inch lift - because it definitely does not look like it - unless those are just some really bad pics.

Maybe take some different pics from close up - and at a more straight on angle instead of looking down on it.
