Very well could be the situation, but like I said, I would still be interested just to take the whole powertrain and interior and swap them into an XJ. I am sure the engine, trans, transfer case axles, hubs, brakes, seats, console and maybe even the dash would cost more than $8K. Swap what I can(you'd be amazed), and part off the rest.

There is also this:
My buddy had a new Dodge Ram, we were in it when this guy backed into his front end. It crushed the grill, header panel, lights and hood, and one fender. No frame damage, no engine damage, just cosmetic. They totalled it out! He accepted the check, then turned right around and paid $400 for the truck from insurance. Fixed the front end, and drove away in a brand new truck, paid off. The only change was his warranty was no longer viable. But with no payments, he had plenty of cash to fix things if they went bad.

Not enough of the XJ, no viable powerplant upgrade or swap available, not fast enough nor any potential to make it any faster. Fine for a chick or confused young lad like you! J/K! lol

Re: HEMI Commander Limited

one of the reasons why I like them is beccause of the value for money and it's nice and boxy.

I think they are expensive. For the down payment on one of them, I can buy an XJ cash and drop gobs of H.P. into it.

Re: HEMI Commander Limited

Ron, wait another year and you will be able to get a Commander fairly cheap. Jeep has plans to discontinue it.

Prices do seem to be coming down, but I don't know if I can wait a whole year. Specially if I come back this August and end up staying. We will see. I would ONLY buy a fully-loaded Hemi 4x4 Commander. I've seen them in the 15-17K$ range, but with a ton of miles on them.

Re: HEMI Commander Limited

I would worry about getting back home to the land of the free before you start worrying about a Jeep. If money is tight rock a beater for a year or so, then save up for something nice.

That said I plan on looking at Commanders sometime within the next couple of years. I just hope replacement parts will still be available once they make it extinct.

Re: HEMI Commander Limited

Why a Commander Chris?


They are basically a Grand Cherokee with a third row shoved in.
