Farewell Compass & Thank you all!

Hi All

The Compass was my first Jeep, and it is excellent for what it is/meant to be. The past month, I have been tempted to drive through some very ambitious off road tracks, which made me realize what I want in a vehicle.

I've traded in my Compass CRD, for a brand new 08 JK Unlimited Rubicon! I fell in love with it after the test drive, and I won't say more here.

But a big thanks to Gramps for all your help with the MK advice. I managed to take the MK to places most other vehicles in the same class wouldn't dare. A very capable Jeep, but I wanted more and the Compass helped me realize that!

Thanks again Gramps and everyone else here in the MK section! Farewell and see you around.

Thanks for helping us out too. We've enjoyed you being here and hope that you come back and visit from time to time. The wife's going to be jealous, she wants a JK Unlimited too.

I hope to see you in the JK Forums!

Hey thanks for all the kind words guys, I'm definitely sticking around both here every now and the JK forums! I've already come across a fix for the stereo in my JK thanks to these forums, getting the computer flashed on Monday. I have to get into gear and become a supporting member!

To CoriolisSTORM, I'll see what I can do. Maybe strap the CRD engine to the top of my JK and drive over there??

See ya guys.
