Hey everyone. I've been reading some threads for a while now. Decided it was finally time to make an account. Got my hands on a 2012 Jeep Compass 4x4. Gf says I got a problem , second week I had it I was installing 3500k hids in the fogs and tinting the windows. Installed a curt class 3 hicht also.

I made my self some brackets to mount my offroad lights onto the existing holes that are made for the optional tow hooks.

I went off roading a bit , Not much flex .

Heres a teaser of what I'm working on finishing at the moment.

And these are the rims I'm planning on buying next spring for the summer.
My factory rims I'm want to get them powder coated black and only use them for my winter tires.

Hey Acadian, good to see another Montreal compass on here

What size are the lights, 6 or 8"? Looks good, I'm planning to add some one day, slightly higher though in front of the grille. Be careful not to rear end anyone or park too close, they'll be the first thing to go!

Where's the dirt track, in Laval or further out? I'm in Brossard but have no idea of any tracks I could play about on

Those wheels were on my shortlist too but not sure if I'll go for something different in 16" or something else in 18"

Extras: Magellan GPS, Hidden Hitch Class II, iPAD 2

Welcome and good to see another member infected with the modding bug.

Tell ur gf that u don't have a problem u just enjoy ur vehicle. I have two and every single one of my cars have some modification to them. Usually within the first week, first and free is debadging. All emblems without a hole behind it goes and of course dealer stickers too. All of them came off my Compass.

Very nice selection of parts, no weak parts in that list.

Bedevil: The lights are 7" and I know the hole thing about being careful mind you its not so bad I got them at princess auto on sale for 20$, If one does crack or break I'm not going to cry over it. I wanted some hellas but there way to pricey. The trail is in Terrebonne its the snowmobile atv trail that runs along the 335 after the 640.
Heres a teaser of what I got done this weekend , still have to finish it up, tie up all the wires and thinking of installing a mesh or grill of some sorts where the sub woofer is.
