Mopar mud guard

Does anybody has some mopar mud guards installed on their compass?
If you have some pics, it would be great because I'm looking forward to buy some but I don't know what it will look like.

Thanks!

I'd be interested to know what they cost to purchase and to install.

But I guess the mud guards of OTW are flexible? I'm looking for something more solid.

I looked into splash guards last year and you are all correct. The generic Jeep guards that OffTheWoll has fit the Patriot and Liberty (maybe more models as well) and also come in white lettering or black lettering. The ebay link is to the molded Compass guards that will only fit the Compass.

When I was researching, it sounded like the molded variety looked great, but had an issue with mud/dirt/snow sticking to them. They even have a "cubby hole" where the mud/dirt/snow clumps on them. I think snow was the biggest complaint.

Just an FYI. If you are going for looks and no off-roading you should be fine.

I put generic rubber mud flaps on my jeep. Total cost for me was $100 including installation.

2009 Jeep Compass North 4X4, Sunburst Orange

Everyday as a child i used to pray to God to give me a jeep. After a couple of years i realized that God did not work that way. So i stole a jeep and asked for HIS forgiveness

My fault, the thread I remembered was actually on Jeep Patriot.com and was in reference to the molded Jeep Patriot splash guards. I just assumed that the Compass splash guards would have the same problems.

The mud guards on Ebay are for Compass only but I am sure that the ones on a Patriot are really alike.

Just throwing this into the mix. I spent $39.98 + tax on mine. I was debating on putting them on at first. But now I love them. I just put mine on myself which was a beotch! Took a good hour and some because I took off the back tires to get easy access to do drilling.

I've just ordered the molded ones.
I'll keep you updated.

I remembered that on my mazda3, the snow always get stucked on the mud guards and you just have to clean them while it's slushy, not one week after when it's iced.

I have the moulded Mopar mud guards. I have to say I prefer the look to the white-lettered cheaper ones. They are made to look like they are part of the skirting I think, same colour and feel. They flex well so wont easily snap on a curb etc, unfortunately I went down a pretty high curb and cracked one of the rear ones slightly (1-2cm), its hardly noticable tho.

As for snow sticking to them, It does. But you can easily knock it out if it gets out of hand. IMO I'd rather have it stick to the mud guard than fly up all over the side of the Jeep.

And as for installing, the front ones you can do no probs with the tires on (turn the wheel), but the rear ones you will probably need the wheels off. I did it while I was having the wheels rotated so that saved me some effort.

Thanks COMPASSDL! It looks really cool! That's the same as I ordered.

What do you think about these mud guards?

They work fine are are not hard to install. Just make sure you get them straight in the rear or they look funny from the back.
