HEMI Commander Limited

Now, everyone knows my preference for the boxy style of the XJ. What you might not know is I view the Commander as a bigger, beefier XJ. It certainly has more in common with them than any other model of Jeep. Well, I like Commanders. I like them a lot. I just don't talk about them much since it's close to 40-45 g's for a HEMI Limited 4x4. Even used ones are still near $25K.

I found one in Florida with some cosmetic damage. No frame, subframe or unibody damage, just 2 doors, a fender, a quarter panel and fender trim(pretty much side-swipped), rocker panels and ALL pillars are fine. It is a Limited HEMI 4x4, absoluetely fully loaded truck. Navigation, the works.

They want $8,800 for it. Runs and drives as-is.

The quarter is the only repair I don't like to do. It's the only thing I would have to source out. The rest I could replace in a day. Less if I was in MI.

what do y'all think?

Re: HEMI Commander Limited

yuo gotta watch those easy fixes Ron. My body shop was just duped on a Caddy that was an easy fix. They bought it on the internet and it had been doctored and spray painted to look better in pics. Sorry.....that was way off......sounds like a great deal.

Oh. Sorry. I thought I posted that. It has just under 24k miles, and it's silver(but wouldn't remain that color for long!

No "Sorry...". I have no problems with my friends voicing their concern. Unlike the XJ in Wisconsin, I would definitely NOT buy this Florida truck without many inspections, and only after looking at it in person.

Re: HEMI Commander Limited

Could you guys just imagine a totally, truly murdered Satin Black Commander on black 22" Viper reps?

Re: HEMI Commander Limited

It would be sweet, but for only 9k i would think there my be some water damage/electrical issues with the thing being its from Florida. Im not saying there is but does anyone think its pretty low price overall?

Re: HEMI Commander Limited

Last night we watched Paul Blart: Mall Cop. The S.W.A.T. team pulls up in at least 2 Commanders, and I swear they were satin black. That looked H.A.W.T.!!!

Re: HEMI Commander Limited

I'd steer clear, certainly if you can't inspect it yourself.

There's a reason the thing hasn't been fixed.... it's obviously not ecenomical to do it. A replacement Commander was cheaper.
