My trip home this August is supposed to be temporary, but if I land a killer job, it will be permanent. My goal was to come back with $10K, but I will fall a little short of that(economy and getting married etc.). If I do one more year here in Korea, I plan on living like a pauper, working EVERY extra class I can get, and should come home with well more than $10K(combined with this years savings, I hope MUCH more!). I really want to build a killer XJ from the ground up, but I stay in Tennessee, while my auto connections are in MI. I don't know how that'll pan out. So if I don't build what I want, I need to buy something that needs only minor mods to make me happy. Since I like the XJ so much, and to me, a Commander is just a bigger, beefier XJ, they catch my eye.

Why? What's it stem from? The Commander is an aggressive-looking, Hemi-powered beast!

Oh c'mon! That's not good enough excuse! My first Camaro was a rusted out shitbox. Doesn't mean I hate all Camaros!

Hey Paul. What's up?

I was thinking of buying a Hemi Commander, then seeing if I could swap in the 6.1 SRT motor. The transmissions should be the same, if my source is correct. Just a thought...
