AArrrrggghhh - I hate the lacking aftermarket..
 
:ranton:

I hate the lack of aftermarket support for parts etc for our Jeeps. Having come from the Tuner world and having a Neon where every few months there was something new and cool made to change the appearances of our cars - it just frustrates me.

The Caliber has a HUGE aftermarket presence (so don't go saying it's cause the Compass is still 'new')

Why can't someone make some cool OEM looking LED tail lamp replacements like the Caliber has....

BAAAAAARGHHHHHHH!

:rantoff:

Ok - sorry about that - needed to vent - maybe I'll try and find one of these companies that make them for the Caliber and see if they'll make Compass ones....

:cheers2:

I share your pain.

LED tails would be awesome too. Not to mention HIDs, etc.

argent, do u have any more pics of your rally edition? i really like these little jeeps. im a liberty owner and we dont have much aftermarket support either so i feel your pain

Argent33 08-28-2008 02:36 PM

I do just not online - I'm also looking for better scenery to shoot my Rallye in...

I wonder where we can find contact information for one of the companies that actually manufacture like aftermarket tails for the Caliber and write them to see if they'd make Compass ones too...I mean everyone's got JDM style, or Altezza style, tail lamps available for 100's of different makes/models.

Not like I'm looking at major body mods or body kits etc.....I just think some different tails would be nice - maybe even some custom front turn signals lens or something....Projector beam headlights might be cool too - but they'd have to be styled right - and think of the size of the angel eyes you could put on a Compass/Patriot!

Made by these guys apparently - tried to contact them (they have lights for other Jeep's - Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Wrangler and Liberty)

I don't care for the first ones, but the second set is alright.

Argent33 09-03-2008 06:41 AM

yeah I think those 2nd ones would look good on my Black Compass :)

You know... Those tails would indeed look pretty good on the Compass.

Wish this front end was available. Startech is a company in Europe.

Lots of lifted Compass' around. Do we need a special photo section for them and the Patriots?

Startech is old news. Contact info over here. Because the Compass was marketed as a non-traditional" Jeep most independents don't want to play with us.

I can personally attest to the lack of interest in MK parts as a whole. I thought that the Skid Plate fasteners would be a very popular item and I've ended up losing my *** on them. I've made a few people very happy, including myself, but I'll never by in bulk again.
