Lifted Compass Spotted - NJ

Not sure if this is someone on here or not but saw a newer style Compass in the parking lot near our new apartment Sat. We have been looking at the new 2014 because of the updated trans and possibility of a CRD in the 2015 version. I was on the fence about them because of the stance. Seeing this Compass has changed my thoughts a little more on them. We started looking at the Trailhawk Cherokee but the lady didn't like the front end. Its a love it or hate it look.

I am assuming they installed the RRO 2" lift. Didn't get a chance to talk to the owner. I haven't seen many of these lifted and thought I would add for reference or people looking to mod theirs.

On with the pics -

I'm surprised they got 255's on that compass, especially after lifting with the RRO kit, must have spacers or rims with zero offset. You are right there aren't many lifted Compass' around.......buy I have one!

It looked like a REALLY tight fit but they made it work. I would say there was 1/4" from the tire to the bottom of the strut where the spring seats in. I didn't get a chance to really crawl around it to see what they had going on with the Jeep. I was with the lady and it was in a parking lot. Its NJ after all and people get rather defensive if they see you poking around their car. If I was driving my 06 Rubicon I used to have then it says "hey I know jeeps and like yours"

Yours looks great man! Would love to see more pics of it from the sides so I can show the lady the potential of the new Compass. Have been looking at putting on TJ/LJ Rubicon Moab rims on it if we decide to purchase one...

Wow! That is sweet!

I have 14 Compass and would love to do this as well.

Where does one but this RRO kit ? What does it consist of and how difficult is it to install ? Most importantly.... how much is it ?

Any shots from the side?

I'm running AT3's on my Ram and LOVE them! Highly recommend them to anyone looking for a cheaper AT tire.

How do you like the RRO winch mount?

I would love for someone to come up with a roof rack that could incorporate the radius style LED light bars like they have for the Raptors

I love the winch mount, works awesome and I've winched quite a few people out. It uses the factory steel bumper mounts to attach to the frame so it it rock solid.
