Help me find me a Drivers side Tail Light? Anyone have one?

I'm looking for a 2012 Jeep Compass latitude "Altitude" edition tail light that isn't 350$ from the jeep dealer, I can do the work myself just can't find a drive side taillight assembly. Anyone want to take a quick look and see if you get anything different or have a wrecked compass as doubtful as that sounds seeings they are still new that i can buy it off of you. Ty

Don't know if it helps you or not but i don't believe the Altitude editions have different taillights then all the others. I believe the tails are the same no matter what package. I know the tails on my 2012 compass altitude are the same as the sport model that was on the lot.

Do you mean Latitude? I don't see a Altitude in my database. List price on a Latitude taillamp assy is $297. Perhaps the dealer is marking up the list price? You may want to shop around. 2011-2013 are all the same fitment. There are some used ones on www.car-part.com for $100-$150.

The tail lights should all be the same regardless of what trim level you have. Try E-Bay. Lots of tiems they have very good deals on lights and lenses. I am pretty sure that 2011 is the same lamp as well.

According to Jeep these are the only differences on the Altitude vs a standard Latitude...

Includes everything on Latitude, Plus:
Black gloss grille surround
Gloss Black headlamp bezel
Gloss Black roof rails
Gloss Black step pad
18" Gloss Black wheels
Power heated mirrors
