It's a tough call - I'm getting the dealer to price match all these accessories (and without paying s/h either) but it's basically a one-time deal. On the Mopar molded tray it looks like the back flaps *might* fold down (at least the middle ones) and it probably does help a little with spills and movement. I got the Beats package as well* so that's one less pocket to care about (now that Mudman mentions it, I see this in one of the linked item pics.)
Mudflaps -- interesting suggestion. I see myself on pavement mostly but definitely plan to use the Trailhawk for what it's made for… and the mudflaps just might get in the way. Will definitely take it into consideration though - besides the aforementioned rock rails and roof rack, I also asked for the sill guards and the Thule kayak kit and still have to time to add other stuff.
*O/T, but Mudman, what's your impression of the Beats system? Generally I'd go aftermarket if I wanted good sound, and Beats is definitely a style-over-substance sort of brand, but a) changing the head unit seemed like it meant losing a number of system options, b) the price really wasn't bad, c) frankly cars aren't ideal audiophile environments anyway, and d) even Crutchfield seemed to think the system was decent (reviewing the Renegade Beats package, but presumably very similar.) For these reasons I ended up putting the Beats in my order, but I never got to test it and wondered what other owners think.
Okay, how do I answer this without hurting snowflakes... My 2012 Ram Cummins 2500 and Cherokee Trailhawk both had the factory Nav unit and Alpine audio system. Both are higher quality vehicles. After more than 50,000 miles on both, zero rattles or issues with such things. In the MP Latitude I have now, that is not the case. I have to keep my bass down to +1, or all of the doors rattle. With treble at 6+, mid at 2+ and bass at 1+, music sounds good. I listen to talk radio, news radio, Octane, Lithium, Rock Bar, etc with occasional Country. I don't like bass that makes my ears hurt, but good sound is important. I think the Beats is worth the $700, no doubt. However, the rest of the vehicle was not built to keep the audio system the focus. Does that make sense? For example, I've had 3 dash and 1 front passenger door rattles that I've fixed on my own, without music being the cause. It was just poor fit and finish. In summary, the Beats is worth the cost, it does sound clear and sounds good, but it cannot perform to its full potential because the Compass is not built like an Audi, or even other FCA vehicles...it is built like an economy vehicle. Such as, no sunglasses holder, no change holder, no place for a phone, and only one 12V port in the passenger area. That said, I like my Compass because I can row my gears, tow little trailers, pull 30+ on the highway, and (I'll find out Friday for sure) navigate snow without crapping myself. It is just the girlfriend and I plus two small dogs. And, we want to buy a house.
