There is a listing on the mopar parts catalog, but it doesn't specify which is the FDII part, here are the 2 part numbers though, would have to confirm before buying which is the FDII part.

everything went as planned except for 6 rivets that hold the lower fascia to the grill, had to be cut out (3 on each side) replace with stainless locking nut/bolt combo

Are you going to take it off again for the tow hooks, I know on my FDII we had to take the tow hooks off when we put the winch bumper on, but my bumper cover was off already.

Looks like you are running Grabber AT2 tires, what size are you still running the 18" limited rims (I think you have a limited)

need tow hooks now

Im keeping my ear to the ground for used towhooks. All the local junk yards have no off road mk's that I can ravage. The lower fascia was only attached by plastic push clips and the 6 rivets I mentioned. Now that ive replaced the rivets with locking nut/bolt combo, the tow hook install should go much easier.
Good eye on the tires I went to a 16" option aftermarket rim, and the tires are 225/70 r16. They are great on the highway aswell as the MUD. I sold off my 18's because there were no decent offroad options that gave me enough sidewall.

Over on a different forum, someone found a compass with 18" aftermarket rims running 255/60/18 Nitto Terra Grappler Tires. I used to run a set of 18's but only for summer, i'm curious to know if the person was running spacers or rims with a zero offset.

If you goto the repair parts section and select 2011 or up compass, and goto the body hardware and then front grille, you can select the lower bumper cover with tow hooks (that's the one you need) for some reason though it doesn't list the part number.

My guess would be overseas knock-offs, that probably are thinner and wont line up properly as the original Mopar unit, but with out a link it would be hard to tell.

Not sure, they both are definite knock-offs but state they are based off the OEM designs.

Personally I would check out the return policies of both sites if you are going to try to source it from there. If it doesnt fit properly return it.

Thanks. $86 looks like a good price, until I saw the $225 shipping!
Found it on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Chrysl...rds=68109862AA

I got a price from the local Jeep dealer for the 68109862AA facia. Their quote indicated there was also a $100 core charge. What's with that? These are "rebuilt" from Mopar??? I was unsure if sending back a FD1 facia for the FD2 that I buy would be an issue, but I did not pursue it. I ordered the Amazon one, free shipping with no mention of a core charge. Should be here early next week. I did pick up the 82212577 tow hooks from the dealer (buddy's an employee $$). They checked the part number and said they will fit my '14 Compass.

Thumbs up Install done. Not a job for everyone if you want hooks too...

I installed the 82212577 front hook kit, without too much trouble. I also installed an extra "high" note horn (the stock one is a "low") - it now sounds MUCH better. I then went to put on the 68109862AA facia. Big problem! The hook kit has the hooks "pointing" out. The facia holes didn't line up and I finally figured that this facia requires the hooks to point IN! You can't just swap the hooks left to right, since each is different due the frame rails. I tried swapping the back spacers (drivers side is the longer one - like the back bolt), no luck because the middle nut holder would then not line up. Major back and forth, in and out, head scratching, give up, tear it back apart work... I was committed. I took the jump and cut the tow hooks with my cut-off saw right behind the front bracket, swapped the two hooks and welded 'em back up. It took a few tries because the angles are funky. I have a good MIG welder and fab skills, but this job was pretty taxing...

After SEVEN hours, it is done. I think it looks OK too.

If you just want the facia, it fits just fine and looks great but it would leave huge holes for the missing hooks. I had tried to find Compass specific hooks, but everyplace said the "Patriot" ones are "IT". Even the dealer(!) This FDII facia requires the hooks point "IN" due to the location of the opening. If you just wanted to put the hooks in w/out swapping the facia, you could just cut out the stock FD1 facia and it may be fine. If someone reading this HAS a FDII with hooks already, I'd sure like to see a close up. Do they point IN or OUT?

They face inwards on a factory FDII, this was the best pic I had, when I was installing my RRO winch bumper.

Yep. Thanks. That looks right. The kit (for a Patriot) points them OUT. There was NO way I could get them installed, pointed IN. Hence the cut/reweld. I'm OK with the final result, but not the process. I sure wish I could've come up with the correct Compass specific kit. Maybe the parts books show all the individual parts, correctly. Oh well.

So...I noticed that the one thing missing from this thread is that there is no link to the Amazon page:dealer that sells the FDII facia. Does anybody have this link? I wanna order it but in not sure if the Jeep Dealership here in Germany can order MOPAR parts. So an Amazon link would be great. Also, Id rather not search for myself on Amazon since I don't wanna order the cheap quality/knock off version of the FDII facia...

Finally got my FDII Fasica in and on. Ended up ordering it from a local Jeep Dealership. Took only two days to come in and cost 105 Euro! Looks great! Now I just need tow hooks/winch kit. Only a thirty min install!
