Hi Guys & Gals!

I'd like to introduce my 2008 Commander Sport that I won at auction.

Originally I was buying this as a flip as it was supposed to run and drive BUT the auction failed to mention that its will only run for a second!

Naïve me thought I could buy a Commander sight unseen for only $1000 and not have any major issues. Sadly this truck needs an engine or head gasket at the least. When I found out how much these engines cost used it completely killed my flip idea and I decided to keep the truck for myself. A remanufactured 4.7L doesn't cost much more than a used one and since I now plan on this being my personal Jeep that's what I'm going for. My father (25+years exp mechanic) and I will be doing the labor of swapping the engine so ill save some money that way. The Jeep's body its self appears to be in great condition all electrical systems seem to be in good order. I even drove the truck around my yard for a few seconds LOL.

Below are a few pictures from the auction as I haven't taken any new ones other than my signature.

Think you did good. Even if you just parted it out you could make a profit. But it looks great and fixing it up is a sound idea.

Clean body for 1k man! After you get the engine issues fixed you’ve struck a serious deal haha (weather you flip or keep) 👍❤🔥

I think you got a steal. Gorgeous commander. I just had major engine work done on a 3.7. These vehicles are special, very much worth keeping and fixing. It looks like besides the engine you found one in great shape. I think you will be happy with your purchase and glad you kept it in the long run!
