What is the Letter Designation for Compass/Patriot?

This may be a stupid question but, since the Compass is technically a Jeep, what two letter designation has DC labeled it with?

Liberty=KJ
08 Liberty=KK
and so on.....

Paul

EDIT: N/M found out it's the MK...along with the Patriot.


08 KK Sport, Red Rock for me
07 Compass LTD, Steel Blue for wifey.
08 Patriot Sport, Jeep Green for son.

Well it says MK on the forum list:


Compass Technical Forum
Discussion for the 2007-present Jeep Compass (MK). Based on the Dodge Caliber.

Is that it?

Not all of the posts were submitted by MK "only" owners and not all threads/posts appear to be worth reading to some, but you can't tell a book by it's cover. I know that many of us have referred to the Compass/Patriot by the MK designation but if the topic of the thread was not one of your interests you didn't pick up on that info. Never hurts to ask, somethings are worth repeating.

The Jeep MK platform (Compass/Patriot) is based on a modified Dodge PM platform (Caliber).

It may also be beneficial (especially for newbies) to wander on out to the JeepForum Home Page and browse around for the FAQ's and the Announcements to maybe get some ideas of their own for posting and just general information. Provided they can find the time, there's a lot of information on this site to absorb.

Notice the EDIT
5 minutes after initial post, I found the answer in the FAQ/WIKI area.

Didn't(couldn't ) read the small print under the forum title.

But you're right, I should've researched first then posted.

MK or TK

So I understand that JeepForum puts the Compass and the Patriott in the same forum because "technically" it is the same vehicle. However, I just bought my Patriot and my registration that Jeep filled out says it is a "TK" and not an "MK".



MK would be cool since it is also my wife's initials. That would make MK the two biggest loves in my life, but it looks like the Patriot is TK.

According to ALL of the Service Manuals, Parts Manuals and even doing a "Google" both the Patriot and Compass are referred to as MK. The Compass is an MK49 and the Patriot is an MK74. We all know that dealers never make mistakes.

When I Google for Jeep TK it comes up with the 4dr Wrangler Unlimited.

Cool, so I have a one of a kind. That should be worth some money! LOL Maybe the UK doesn't have any, but the US has ONE and it is all mine!

Hold on, what if I wreck my MK and then the insurance company says, sorry the registration says TK so we can't help you. Eeeeek.
