Mopar Accessory Book Misprint!!!
ok, NOW i have the facts on the Mopar Accessory "Dual" Exhaust for Compass.
after speaking to Mopar Specifying AND the Chicago PDC QC Dept today, we (Specfying, QC and I) have come to the conclusion that the Accessory Book has a misprint. the exhaust is NOT "Dual" as stated. not even a 'dual tip', but simply a 'cat-back' unit with a larger outlet and chrome tip. this is why it states 'same as used on the Caliber SRT. i was wondering why this would be 'dual' when all the pics of the SRT showed a single chrome tip....now i know. AND YOU DO TOO!
so, don't order this accessory UNLESS you just want a larger outlet and chrome tip.
oh well, guess i'll go back to Plan A and get the receiver hitch.......

Well, good old Mopar strikes again.....
.....so i get to work this AM all excited to see the 'Dual Exhaust' accessory kit i ordered yesterday. now remember that all the other depots showed them on back-order other than the Chicago PDC. anyway, when i go to check out the kit, i find a STANDARD EXHAUST for a Compass with the accessory part number on it.
after a fax and a phone call, i now have the QC Dept in Chicago checking the remaining stock to see if they have the correct part and then i'll go from there.
SORRY.........guess the exhaust may have to wait until after CHRISTMAS!!!!

|Matthew1785||can someone step in and give some clarification on this, i would love to get the dual exhaust, however my rear bumper for the rallye edition does not have a 2nd cutout nor does the 4x4 rallye edition either|

|Jeepster55||.....but the thing i find odd is the part "same as the SRT system". HUH? the pics i've seen of the Caliber SRT-4 only shows ONE outlet. but i DO believe this is a 'dual' exhaust with off each end of the muffler as the pic in another post showed. i hope.....|

Compass 4X4 2007 Stainless Exhaust System....
"Compass and Caliber Dual Exhaust System. Same as SRT system. Only fits with Rally body kit due to fascia clearance. 4X4 models only."
Suggested Retail Price....$295.00 (dealer COST is $225.00, but you didn't hear it here!!! )
(this is a quote from the 2007 Mopar Accessories Catalog. sorry, no pic)
availability? 4 in the Chicago PDC and 13 on BACK-ORDER ELSEWHERE!!! (so if you want one, you had better get one soon and unless you're in the Chicago region, you may have to have it "special handled"!!!)

|Matthew1785||my rallye compass doesnt have a 2nd cutout for duel exhaust? i wonder if i got it installed at the dealership would they cut the 2nd hole, i wouldnt feel comfortable doing it myself, i'd probably ruin the bumper|

|Coasty161||a quick comparison of the exhuast from leeparts does seem like the caliber exhaust would bolt right up.|

the more i read and research, the more i'm confused.
i 'believed' the Mopar Accessory listing said it was the same as used on the Caliber R/T, but after looking at Caliber R/T's, they only have a single outlet, as do the pics i've seen of the Caliber SRT-4's. i'll do some more research on this and get back to you. i may even order the kit at work and see just what is in it and how it's set up.

I've also been looking at purchasing this kit. My problem has been finding an actual picture of what the kit looks like. There is one going on ebay right now but it has a generic picture out of the mopar parts book of the chrome tip exhaust for the sport, and not the limited dual exhaust as advertised. I would love this exhaust if it was a truly dual exhaust with one tip on the left and one on the right. But i have a feeling (based on the price, and a hunch) that it's just a dual tip coming out the right side. Also from the Rallye rear fascia that i've seen there is only one passenger side cut out, not two.
I just found out that Borla has put out a brand new SS Cat back kit for the limited 4X4. I'm leaning now more towards this kit. I have Borla headers and a catback system on my YJ and i love it. I'm willing to be the guinea pig for either one (when i get my MK back).
