I ordered mine on April 5th. I think mine took a while because they were in the middle of a design change with that bracket thingy. No big deal for me, they were great and always kept me up to date with what was going on.

I am thinking of the rock rails Rocky Road makes ... that would look nice. Maybe next

The drive home was cool. No real difference that I could notice. I felt like I was a foot higher than normal, even though it was only 2" hehehe No real corning or anything like that to see if there is a difference. Will keep checking it out.

On thing I need to do is go back to the place tomorrow and have the exhaust pipe bent a little differently and some black high heat paint for the pipe. Other than that I am ready to go Jeepin

That looks pretty good! I didn't think it would as nice on a Compass as it would on a Patriot. Now I'm going to be considering this for my Compass. haha
