Hey everyone!!! just got my brand new 2011 jeep compass on Wednesday night, i have the basic Model but i am an avid car customizer and figure i'll take the basic one due to the fact i'll be swapping most parts off of it anyways lol...plus the financing available only allowed me to get the basic model. I had about a week and a half test drive in a used Grand Cherokee Limited and loved everything about jeep...(cept for the $250+ in gas i put in the truck during that week and a half test drive) lol.... so i got my compass.. Love it. cant wait to mod it up a lil bit. just having a hard time finding parts and what not for it. i'm assuming cause it is so new that not much is out yet. well just thought i'd introduce myself!!! cant wait to talk with many of you!!

Eric

PS i traded in a 06 scion xb for this car.

Hey there Eric and welcome to the forum, glad to have you join us and congrats on your Compass! Any pics you can share? We'd love to see it! You're in good company if you like modding lol, so what do you have in mind for it? Lots of ideas here and great people and info, too, so any help you need, just ask and I hope you enjoy the site! :)

no pics yet....gonna wait till its a lil decent out and can polish her up a lil bit...(dont think there is any wax from factory on it) umm well as far as plans...i'm gonna keep this fairly simple...i received my pioneer AVH-p4300dvd 7 inch touchscreen yesterday and of course when i went to go get an install kit for it no one has one so i'm stuck ordering it online and waiting....i did manage to get the expensive a$$ wiring harness for it though, just waiting on install brackets now so i can get it put it....

I'm also right now looking for some new speakers but don't wanna be dissapointed with the sound. but like i said mostly my mods are going to be:

Tint (this is first thing planned) i hate not having dark windows
HIDS
Rims (not sure what size)
full stereo with either 2 8inch woofers or 2 tens in custom box
prolly suede out headliner and pillars
thats mostly it for right now, i'm sure more will come up as i go along

Question i have for you and or anybody else....i really want heated seats....is that something i can get from Jeep itself and then just install them myself? Also, on the 2011 compass's (i'm sure its the same for other years as well) some models have a plug to fit household electrical things in... mine has the spot for it, but does not actually have the unit....can i buy that separately and either install it myself or have my local dealer do it? just curious....def think that would be helpful

Adding the heated seats after the fact, I'm not sure about that though I won't say it can't be done. As for the plug in, they do make after market inverters that aren't tough to find. Mine already came with one but those I know are out there! Nice mod list!
