    2006 4.7L w/545RFE NV245 QTII 4X4 version. Big torquey beast with a pillbox for a rear window. I love it. The stock stereo was better than my Liberty aftermarket one.

    Pics to follow.

    Awesome! I almost traded my KJ in for an 08 Overland XK Hemi 4x4...but then we got the LR3 instead...

    What color did you get?

    I plan on lifting it but I cant decide. Somewhere between a cheap Rough Country spacer lift and 32's or the $1600 Super Lift Kit and 33's. First mod will be a FlowMaster, gotta let that V8 growl.

    Didn't even look there yet. Does anyone make something like a Frankenlift for the XK.

    No. I learned a lil bit about the WK since I've had it. XK is basically the same.

    In the WK, even the OME HD rides better than stock.

    There is the OME kit for $750....but that's a 1.5" lift. Probably had some stuff to it (kinda like the KJ) to get it to 3"...

    No. Wrong. Since the OME lift nets 3" for the WK, I'd imagine that since the XK is a few pounds heavier, the lift height would be around 2.5".

    Just wanted to remind the Commander owners to check out the new Commander Forum at www.xk-forum.com to learn more about the Commander and enter the monthly contests to become the "Ultimate Commander"

    The first mod. I had to paint the grill insert silver. Black is just so bland there.
