That's the key. Don't ask someone else what they would do, that would be adding their look. If you're looking for ideas, check the internet for pictures of modded Compasses, there are plenty. Try a google image search. Find some mods that YOU like, and see how you can customize them to fit your personality. In this case, it really is "All about you". Check some of the Jeep parts websites. They have custom parts galore. And most importantly, have fun!

Thanks for your response. I understand what you are saying but my goal was to come on here and see what other people would do to customize the compass. I didnt post on here to tell me what you did so i can do it myself and say its my twist. I am just looking for examples of what other peple have done. I have looked online but mainly all i have found are completly custom show cars. I have looked online at the parts websites and have a couple ideas of what i would like. Thanks again for your response i hope that my reply dont sound rude i am just trying to explain why i posted this thread.

Thanks for your response, I am not looking to go all out i am pretty much looking for small add ons that can make the image of the vehicle look a lot more appealing. I was looking at some of the compass's on here and seen how good they all looked with some window decals strategicaly placed and not crouded (now its just what ones i want hmmmmm).

I currently have two window decals, one from a local jeep club that I am pretty active with, another one from the company that made my lift. I think that's where most people get their decals from, clubs or products they support. if you plan on doing any modifications to your intake/exhaust etc. maybe look to see if they sell a decal you can put on that sparks your fancy. or if you are looking at after market wheels or if you got special tires on your MK that are some sort of performance tire and you want to show off, see if they have a sticker.

There are two options for lifts: rocky road outfitters, www.rocky-road.com, which is a spacer lift, then getting a coil lift.

Hey kevin, go with the RRO lift, then get a nice set of off road style wheels, tires and a good roof rack. looks great!

replace the stars with jeep patriot (no space) and it will take you to Jdog's photo. he has a pretty sick looking pat. I love his rims.

plasti dip is a good way to do some easy customizing, especially if you decide you don't like it.

Just a Rough Idea... Nothing too Crazy

Wheels, Tires, Lift, And a Light bar can change the whole look of the Jeep Compass
