Awesome ride... Finally i have some visual inspiration to what i had in mind form my ride..
Did you mod your ride yourself or took it somewhere?
How is the ride/fuel efficiency/noise level after the mod?
I assume that your ride's warranty is now voided?

Appreciate ur reply in advance

Looks nice. Like the rims. It must lean a lot in turns.

How do you even enter the compass of the month? Haha

My dealership put all the stuff on for me, and they said nothing would effect the warrenty with them also.

The ride is alot better now that i put spacers on the rear and handles alot better. The lift doesnt effect the ride because i drove with the lift on stock tires for a week till the new ones good. The only ride difference, and noise will come from how agressive of tires. Mine are the perfect happy medium of all terrains. Just a note that when you put on tires makemsure that a good size so that they dont rub the rear stuts. The part they would rub against is the lift kit part. The ride is also better with the rear spacers. I only had them for a day so ill have to put them to the test today. Iv had the lift tho for about 3-4 months

Oh and fuel effeciency is also effected depending on tires. Mine crap tho right now due to the fact of cold winters here in canada so lots of remote starting it and letting it run. Will see in the summer time tho what its really like.

What is your opinion on the RRO lift kit? I want to put one on mine. It's the trail rated version, so I'm not sure whether it would hinder or help. I'm new to this, and the last thing I want to do is make a wrong decision.

I personally love mine. The only down side is when you put bigger tires on people generally go for more agressive ones so may ride like a brick s*** house. I think it may also be my no namer tires i have on now. Ill let you know in a few days or so how my new BFG AT KO tires differ.

What do you mean by " Its the trail rated version so im not sure whether it would hinder or help."

Well williams83, your trail rated Compass is already 1" higher than standard, so adding thee RRO kit will make it 3" lift, which is exactly what the True North version has, so if it works for Mopar you should be ok

Well, I'm ignorant to the Jeep community. I had an Ion Redline before this, so the idea of 4x4 is entirely new to me.

When I said that, I meant that I wasn't sure if having the trail rated package on my car made the suspension different in that the RRO kit might change around the dynamics of what's already on there in a different way than it would the standard suspension.

Like I said, I've lowered cars before, when I was a teenager, but never raised them. I'm here to learn. haha

the ride isn't really effected. the only thing out be is your changing the center of gravity so might notice a little body roll but nothing you need training wheels for haha.

so to sum it up the lift doesn't effect the ride but may cause body roll (nothing i notice)
and the only thing that will effect anything is the tires you put on.

Ive have mine for about 3000 k and love it. i would never take it off. just waiting for new tires

what size wheels and tires are you using with the lift kit tbs? And what do the spacers do exactly? I'm also pretty new, but I love the way the compass looks lifted and I'm very interested in doing it to mine lol

Great, but why the trail rated compass 1" higher than standard?

different tire size? or different suspension?

Thanks for clearing it up, I couldn't find an off-road tire by this size 215/65/R17 do you have any suggestions for sand use?
