Wheelin my girlfriends '12 Compass

Disclaimer; My Girlfriend is not your average chick, she is a responsible middle aged adult with kids/grandkids/a job/mortgage payment. But she loves mud and takes her Compass to it whenever she can. I went with her this time and I was impressed at how well she handled the Jeep and how far it could go! We started out with a scenic ride on Bald Mountain in Craig County VA then hit some mud on some other trails in the area. I'm a rock crawler, not a mudder, I have wheeled my lifted/locked XJ all over the east coast on the rocks but I will admit I had fun in the little Compass!

Some pics but none with it in action unfortunately.







She went into one tank trap that tried to rip the rear bumper/muffler off but i was able to fix it later. Al in all, the little Compass was fun. She is looking into trading up to a trailhawk.


Here is what I wheel;

Jon, is it fd1 or fd2?

After all my xj's I've beaten up, I got the fd1 patriot last year ( you saw it at big lots right before Christmas). I've been impressed with snow and sand driving, not to mention the 28 mpg average. It's not a beast, but a darn good dd with the ability to go through more than you would think it could.

Easy solution to the bumper problem (I did the same) is, get a different muffler, moved farther up, and then trim the rear bumper.
