What mods/upgrades have you done to your compass/patriot?

Well I see this on a lot of the other car forums I go on and I figured why not here too?

Here are my mods so far.
10% front tint - retinting to 20% soon to match the factory back tint
Apexcone/DDM 6000k low beam HIDS
3000k fogs - waiting to recieve and install them
Polk SR124DVC 12" Subwoofer 1400w Peak
Kenwood KAC-9104D Amplifier 1800w Peak
AEM Brute Force Silver Intake - waiting to get it and install it

To-Do
Magnaflow Catback Exhaust
Mopar/DC sports exhaust header
Rims
Lowering springs
Rallye front bumper (i don't like how the rallye rear bumper looks)
caliber srt-4 swap In my dreams haha


btw if anyone knows where i could get the rallye front bumper already painted with brilliant black pearl color (paint code pxr) let me know

Mine:

35% tint front, 20% back.
5000K HID Headlight Kit
KC Offroad light
K&N Intake kit
Sport utility bar with snowboard carrier
Vacuum gauge, volt gauge

I think the dealers dont sell the front bumper seperately, you might need to buy a whole painted kit for around $1300.

Hmmm haven't done much to mine yet (not that there's much I can DO to it)

Already have the Rallye package - so I have all the ground effects, wheels, tint and driving lights
and the Premium Sound package - so 9 speakers/sub etc - I did upgrade from the single CD player to the 6-Disc and would like to eventually put a MyGIG in

I've added the K&N Intake
MOPAR Sport Bars

I will be upgrading the headlight/fog lights to nokya's and the rally lights to Hella bulbs and the interior bulbs to white LEDs.

I'd like to upgrade the header/exhaust but being 4x4 makes it apparently harder to find aftermarket parts (most are FWD only)
And if I could find a nice A pillar gauge pod or some other option - I'd add oil pressure and voltage gauges...

...Lowering springs, rallye bumpers... Did I just wonder into the wrong forum or something?

What I've done so far: Skid plates, 2" lift, modified front tow point, rust proofing (for some strange reason the bottom of the vehicle got a few dings during last summer...).

Next: proper tires (looks like Yokohama All-Terrains in 225/65/17), more recovery gear for solo travel. Might possibly spring for rock sliders at some point, maybe. I have to sort out some way to get my sound system to play mp3's one of these days, but there doesn't seem to be very good solutions (remember guys, euro head unit) for that and I've been occupied by other matters.

Haven't yet sorted out where I'll put my full size spare once I upgrade to those All-Terrains - it probably won't fit under the cargo space floor? I might get a roof rack, or just strap it into the cargo space. Dunno yet. A tad fuzzy on the specifics of the recovery gear, too - for example I might get a shorter Hi-Lift or I might go for a manual winch. Hi-Lift would theoretically have more possible uses, but in reality I doubt I'd do that much lifting with it. Ramps to help drive over rocks? They'd have to be fairly small to be handily portable, though, and that would probably limit their usefulness...

No Tony you didn't wander in to the wrong forum :P - for those of us Compass owners who traverse the concrete jungles and not the real ones - form takes precedence over function generally. I must admit my Rallye would look better lowered than raised - unless someday we can actually get re-calibrated for larger tires (I love my 18" wheels too much to go smaller but would consider going up to 29-30" tires) because there's way too much wheel gap for my tastes. My co-worker just put the RR lift on his Patriot with new wheels/tires but on the Pat it looks good...

Anybody install the Mopar catback yet? Is it any louder than stock? I understand it's the same as the Rallye exhaust.
