Just bought my first Jeep!

Traded in my Focus ST for a 2018 Compass Trailhawk in Rhino. Here she is on a beach less than 24 hrs after picking her up.

Congrats Jake, looks great in that color. What about the Trailhawk led you to deciding on that trim? I've been shopping around for a compass the past few weeks, and the Trailhawk's are considerably more money, and I'm unsure if the additional cost is justified. How are you finding it?

I want to take it fishing on the beach up here in NY and the extra ground clearance with the trailhawk front bumper, is ultimately what led to the decision. It handled the beach in Florida very well, although it was a pretty hard packed sand I did drive it through the soft stuff without airing down the tires with no issue whatsoever.
