Winch Mount Bumper Purchased!

So after waiting patiently for RR to release a kit for the 2011+ style compass, I've resolved myself to kit this kit:

Jeep Compass bumper kits and winch kits for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014

I bought it with the brush bar and light mount kit along with an 8000lb winch with synthetic line, should be getting it next week, and hopefully install it soon after.

How much did the complete kit run you? Did you get a discount at all? I've been considering picking one of these up as well..

They are still waiting for some parts to be fabbed up, so it hasn't shipped yet, but I also added the Lift Kit as well to my order, i'm getting free shipping. So the grand totally for the bumper setup is 1100, with the lift kit, its 1500 all in.

Man that looks good. Are those rigid or another brand of leds?

Easy to install? I pulled the trigger last week and bought....well... Basically everything rockyroad offers for the jeep. Tho I got the warn8000s. I may be getting a custom lightbar mount tho, I have quite a few lights to mount.

Also got a quick question re your signature. Do you have a link with details for the interior leds and the headlight conversion? I want to switch out the interior lights and maybe the headlights but was worried about it throwing up a error code on the dash.

Hardest part was getting the bull bar bolted in after everything else was done.

A few minor things to fix in a few weeks when I have more time. The control box for the winch is quite large and when the bumper cover went back on it didn't allow the bumper to fit in perfect, there is major clearance issues, things are super tight. As a result on the drivers side, the bumper cover isn't quite fitting nice and flush like it should. I'm going to move the control box for the winch and hopefully solve the problem.

Related to the clearance issues, we had to enlarge the holes on the bumper mounts for the winch, so we could move it slightly (it was awful close to the AC condenser).

LED headlight wise, they are these

Cree KIT H11 Pack OF 2 LED Bulbs 25W 1800 Lumen Each FOG Head Light Replacement | eBay

Also got a 9005 Kit of the same for the highbeams/DRLS

Also had to use this to avoid flickering and flashing

LED Warning Canceler H11 X 2 Wires Resistors Stop Flicker Flash Plug Play 12volt | eBay

Interior LED's I went with

Festoon Dome All LED Lights Bulbs | Autolumination

Super-High Powered 5050 SMT 3 Chip Led Festoon Bulbs the 9 LED version

I"ve never thrown a code changing interior lights to led's

As for the headlights, get the resistors and you'll be good to go
