I have been reading through this forum for some time now and have found a lot of things that have helped me with working on some of my friends wranglers, patriots, and libertys over the past years so i thought i might as well start an account.
Althought not new to forums i am new to this one and im sure most of the same rules apply i will skim through the forum stickys tonight as i have some time on my hands.
I drive a 00 Ford V10 EX, 01 F150, 93 Bronco and i got the wife a 13' Compass back a few years ago and then traded it in for a nicer one without that crappy CVT and got her a 14' Compass Latitude 4x4. As soon as i test drove it i was satisfied and went for it. I will have owned it for a year in June and have no realy complaints so far for it. The wife is happy so you know how that goes.
I will post some pics soon as i do not have pics at my disposal on this computer (work).
No real plans at this time for the Compass as i am currently working on rebuilding the bronco and EX, soon be selling the f150 and once the bronco is running and in good standing will sell that as well and the EX and Compass will be left.
Only things done to the Compass are towing hitch and over sized AT tires.
Things to do:
-Will most likely order the lift kit from RockyRoadOutfitters soon and will keep ya updated on that. The tires rub at full turn and would like to get rid of that prolem but no hurry.
-Upgrade sounds system no sure what route yet but most likely touch screen double din 10' sub custom box or add 4 x 8' low range speakers to doors along with the stock size upgraded component door speakrs. Probably still add the sub (always use more bass).
-Eventually gets some wheels not sure which ones yet.
-Havnt dont much research on it yet but from what i have done i havnt found a programmer kit like super chips or diablo, but would like for this to happen.
- Not sure on kit for intake as i have read that the stock intake is pretty proficiant design in regards to performance and economy, so will most likely just do a cotten reusable filter next filter change.
This summer Planning on
-tinting all windows with 15% maybe 10% all the way around with font eye brow.
-De badge it and paint or replace chrome with black or matching paint of vehicle. I hate chrome....
-Hopefully order the Retro Fit kit and add HID lights. Alos want to do this to my EX so that might be the first one i do it to so i can know what to expect on time for this vehicle since its an everyday driver for the wife.
- I may look at painting some interior parts to match exterior paint but not sure yet.
- Add interior LED lighting to exsisting lights and add extra to floor boards front, rear, and cargo area.
Im sure i will find other things to do to this, but for the most parts its the wifes car i do drive it quite a bit for all my vehicles are fuel dogs.
Stay tuned for pics, iv got some gnarly ones of a crab pot dropping on the hood this past winter and came close to totalling the Jeep.
