Hello from Prescott, AZ, my wife and I recently purchased a 2010 Commander Limited, with 31700 miles, in a shiny black! We have a seasonal pizza restaurant on our hobby farm in SW WI along the Mississippi River. We needed a 'cross-over' vehicle that can haul supplies for our restaurant and handle the gravely, sometimes snowy/wet, switchback road to our place in Prescott each winter. I have a built Jeep Wrangler with Grand Wagoneer Dana 44 axles, Detroits front and rear, 4.56 gears, 4:1 kit, blah, blah, blah, for off road excursions. The new jeep has the Hemi, nice power band. And the Sat/Nav is way cool. The AWD makes it simple, but still nice to have four low as well. A bit spendy, coulda had a Wrangler Unlimited Sport for the same money; wifey didn't like those. :(

So far, the wife really likes the new Jeep, it's hers to drive. Huge point of fact! Here are a couple of pics:

Thanks! Where in Sconnie are you located? We're in Nelson, across the river from Wabasha, MN. I probably won't be on this website much, it doesn't work that well for me. Most of the time the pages freeze up on our computer. Too bad though, would like to get to know our new vehicle thru others on this web site. Adios!

The AZ group used to be real active, maybe we can get together after the new year for a trial ride.

I have the 2010 with the tan interior with 39k. I love the thing. The nicer creature comforts of the commander was what permitted me to pass the wife test. A 2" lift provides improvement in ground clearance and keeps the ride quality. You made a nice acquisition!

Thanks! Being able to load the rear cargo area without having to reach down helps my wife's bad back. Not that she's the only one loading it~! I've seen quite a few of these trucks in the Prescott area, at least 12 one day. Very popular.

Ah, we're on the west coast, Nelson, WI. We own the Nelson Stone Barn pizza place. Work in the summer, play in the winter!

Yeah, it's a very popular place now, becoming a destination out in the country. Here's our website and directions to find it. Very family friendly, kids love it. www.nelsonstonebarn.com

I am lucky to have a 30x60 foot machine shed with a concrete floor. I have a 10,000# BenPack car lift, and a 1000#tranny lift for my sick car/truck/jeep hobby!
