Yeah, already thought of that one too. I'm still warranty on mine so it's out for now though. I thought a nice 3.7L with a Selec-Trac would make a nice swap. There's other considerations too though, the rear IRS might have to be swapped and the driveshaft would probably have to be changed too. It's all speculative at this point, but I've seen a guy put a frame under his unibody Cherokee so anything is possible. (In case you're wondering I base my parts off of the 2007 Jeep Liberty which is only 7mm wider than the compass making the swap more realistic. It also has a 6 speed, and I think all manual drivers agree that once you have five speeds you just want another gear.)

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
