On Monday I just had the OME full 2in lift done with all new mounting hardware installed, along with RRO UCA's, and RRO super sliders. I also redid the entire cooling system over the weekend new h20 pump, hoses, theremostat,serp belt and tension. By Thursday night the fun was over with some a**hole turned left in front of my son and totaled it, drivers side destroyed and engine caught fire with the flames going over the roof of the Commander. Luckily my son only came out of it with a slight concusion from sitting the drivers side window. Hadn't even gotten it off road yet with the new setup.

My condolences.

I'm glad your son is OK. It proves how safe the XK is, though! :)

Strip out what parts you can and start shopping for another one!

After all that work, and not even have a chance to enjoy it or try her off road.

But the main thing is that no one was hurt very bad.

Looks like it could be a solid parts vehicle, if you have a place to store it !
Did your Commander have side air bags, just curious ?

Good luck, and glad you son wasn't hurt any worse than he was...

The side air bags never went off for some reason, if them had he wouldn't have smacked his head on the drivers side window.

Oh man, that sucks. Glad your son is okay though, that's what really counts.

Here's a bouquet of lilies. May we all have a moment of silence for HEAD6119's Commander.

Very glad to read your son is OK. I'm curious as to why the side curtain airbags failed to inflate. Thankfully, it wasn't a worse incident and the Commander's inherent safety protected your boy. I hope you find a suitable replacement for your XK really soon. Is anything salvageable on the wreck?

They didn't deploy because the impact was not on the side of the vehicle.

So the rebuilding begins




I'am lucky enough to have been able to purchase a new one already. When insurance comes though I'll be able to pay most of it off. Mine was a 2006 with 105000 miles on it, this one is a 2008 with 39000 miles on it and is almost identical to my old one!!!!!!!!!!
