What year Compass are you getting? Far as I know, and I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but the 4WD version comes with the 4X4 badge. If you're buying it used, it could be that the previous owner debadged it as that's a common mod.
As far as manual vs. CVT, I would have to say that's personal preference. I would have loved to have a manual, and funny thing was, the manual trans was standard on the Compass with the CVT being "optional." The dealers I looked at ordered theirs with the CVT, you almost have to special order a manual these days it seems, but if you're getting a Limited, you have the AutoStick feature, so it's a decent compromise.
How much lift are you looking for? A certain tire size in mind you're looking to accomodate?
