The reason why I sold my *sniff* blue one was that my dad had offered to sell me one of his Commanders for $14k and it had 7000 miles on it. The catch, I had to either sell mine and pay him or get it financed. Reason... he wants to have as much money in the bank while he shops for land in the area of Salome AZ. The whole reason why he sold it was he moved to Arizona and it was quite a hassle and wait getting the first Commander shipped down plus he is living in a motor home park and its him and my mom so dragging multiple vehicles around doesn't scream fun in his opinion.

Plus I had a basic model, the new one had sunroof, heated leather seats (which is nice cause if you ever sat on leather at 20 below its not pleasant), oh and the tow/haul option as the wife has been eying travel trailers a lot lately so I am getting ahead of the game. Make sense? :icon_confused:

Gotcha. I figured it had something to do with the model (sport vs. limited). But to add the whole "dad" thing into the mix, makes perfect sense. :eek:rangehat:

UPDATE: Just ordered rear grab handles, and the parts dept mentioned a leveling kit for the XK that was ordered but never picked up and the parts guy was thinking it was a Rough Country Kit. Waiting for a call back. Hoping its cheap because hard to find a kit shipped to Alaska for a good price.

Nice looking Commander. I almost bought one the same colour but opted for the Greystone instead as it had more options.

Added my Rear Grabs tonight, was gonna do a write up but my camera ran away apparently and I cant find it:mofo: So I used my cell phone... sry for the crap quality :(

But then I remembered we had a discussion on this which I participated on :rofl:

Next step tow hooks, didn't try and accomplish tonight because it was just me and wanted 1 more person helping me remove the bumper cover due to limited workspace in borrowed garage.

Just added Hyper Yellow Nokya H10 bulbs in my fogs. They seem pretty bright so far. Hope they last longer then my Silver Stars only got 1 year out of them.

Well he suckered me into trying to get a 1.5TB HD to work with a PreSP1 XP system... the pain, and it turns out the HD is bad... so Sunday I will get moving to install it. Today however I had a 18" Vortex Muffler installed on my XK, if I can find my firewire I will get a short clip uploaded for sound.
