yeah a bit on extreme turning (the tires were listed as 29" so i thought they might clear no problems)... oh well, im pretty sure it will be easy to grind away a tiny fraction of the wheel well to fix it though.
here's some pics of my Compass "Moab Edition" with 225/75R16 BFG Mud Terrains, 16" Patriot Steel Wheels (painted black), Sport Bars and Mopar Accessory Mud Guards. mods soon to come: Skid Plates, eng and gas tank, RRO Lift Kit, Mopar Hitch, Mopar Roof Basket w/mounted spare and Hella Off-Road Lamps.
i plan on it! first, some of the guys on 'another' forum are getting together at the "Badlands" in Attica Indiana on Tuesday. if it's not too hot, i may join them. but as i told them, i'll have to come down with some kind of affliction, since i'm suppose to be AT WORK!
as for the other 'mods', i'm working on it. right now i'm searching for an alternative for my RRO install. seems the Service Manager and my 'tech buddy' have issues which is keeping ME from getting my Compass in the shop to be worked on 'on the side'. a friend of mine in Bloomington agreed to do it, but i have to send him a copy of the instructions on Monday so he can see what he'll be up against.
as for some of the other things......got the Mopar Roof Basket and i've changed out my "CHROME" Jeep nameplates for "Quartz" off of a 97 XJ.
thanks...i'll do that too. i just copied the instructions and will either fax them to him on Monday or give them to our parts driver to drop off. either way, i'll know on Monday if it's something he will want to tackle, but i'm guessing he will. he's done 2 or 3 Wranglers for a Dr there in Bloomington that apparently had more $$ than sense. wish I were in his shoes.....
pics from my first 'off roading' experience in the Compass......in the "Badlands Off Road Trails and Park" in Attica Indiana. a couple Patriot owners asked me to join them and we had a blast. one Patriot had to rescue a CJ7 from a mudhole, as the tranny failed. the NON-TRAILRATED MK not only pulled the CJ7 out of the mudhole, but through all the trails all the way back to the parking area and without a single slip. who said these aren't "Real Jeeps"???
