    I must say, Cammander has the gayest of the gay TV commercials - not that there's anything wrong with that.....

    Eh... I like the commanders. I was looking at them with a friend a year ago and you could find the unlimited 4.7's with less than 20k miles for about $15k.
    Nice and roomy, plenty of power, heated seats and sun roofs. Couldn't comment on the towing capacity of them, but it's got to be better than a wrangler.

    don't give em the full price for that. there is some stuff that just don't jive. looks like an overland badge, and interior trim. but the wheels and the badges on the back arn't there. also can't tell but a hitch is a factory option on the over land. its there no matter what and that didn't look like it had a hitch.

    rock rails are part of the over land package. check out www.wjjeeps.com for more information on the trim packages

    My B-I-L had the identical vehicle, ran great, towed his boat all over the State of Maine, not the same weight but it towed very well. Looks like it does have the hitch, at least the center panel is missing which indicates the factory hitch, hard to see in the photo. I would beat them up on the price, seems a little high compared to what I have seen on Craiglist, etc.

    My only input would be from a buddy who works up at JP magazine...DON'T DO IT if you plan on putting anything other than stock size tires on or lifting it at all. He ran one for 25k miles and hated it after they went up 2 tire sizes. He said he would rather drive his M715 in LA friday afternoon traffic than take that thing anywhere. Just my .02
