Does this forum have a place for personal project threads where people can post their car what they want to do to it? That way people can see what they looked like when they started how far they have gone? It is also a place for people to give feedback or help on a project if they have experience in that mods or area.

it is just nice to see where people started from stock to there finished product.

There isn't a dedicated section on this forum, I don't think. Maybe the owner's area would be the closest one. This is, sadly, one of the worst forums I have ever participated in but there are not currently a lot of good options for the Compass. I've been pretty close to starting my own forum a couple of times but I just don't have that kind of dedication.

If you are down for the footwork maybe having a "head thread" in the owners forum and you can post links in it to other thread fragments in the other categories as you go. I know thats not having everything all in one place but the links to everything would be all together, you could just jeep editing the first post in the thread adding to it.

I think what I'm inclined to do when I really start doing jeep "projects" is keeping a blog of it on my own personal website and just linking to those posts here. Then if this whole bargain-bin forum goes belly up I don't lose time and effort invested here. Probably sounds like more work to the average person but I am a "website guy" so fairly easy peasy to me, and you have to think if you are really dedicated and putting together valuable information other people on the internet will want to see then you want that information to have a solid, stable home. I don't really even entirely trust youtube with something I worked really hard on like a long technical how-to, but its neither here nor there for me right now because I'm not going to get into much mods until my Compass is paid off and the warranty shot, and that assumes I don't upgrade to something better at some point along the way...

While this forum isn't as active as others I'm on, bad talking it won't solve anything. I'm new to jeep so i don't know how active mods are for models other than the wrangler.

That said, the new compass is here and there are people who are clearly looking to modify theirs. I'd blame the forum members before i blame the site. What irks me the most is when people don't put pics! The forum will become more active as more people start looking to do mods and as more aftermarket parts become available. In the meantime, those who make posts, INCLUDE PICS! That will help generate interest and in my opinion, limit the one post people.

Put links and info to parts you buy so others have something to reference. Don't wait for someone to ask for it. If you got new lights, post a pic of before and after along with the link to where you got the part. Same goes for any changes or upgrades. If the forum consists of mostly issues and complaints, people won't bother to come back.

If there were a forum that included the Compass, Renegade, and Cherokee, i think you'd see a lot more activity. (kinda obvious of course. but since some parts can be interchanged, more activity and inspiration might be had)

If anyone does do their own blog, youtube channel, or whatever, post the link in your signature or with whatever post you might make about something you did. You'll get traffic to your site, people will have a visual of what you did/got, and you won't have to worry about the forum going bust or an issue like photobucket and losing pics.

I agree since Renegade parts are really interchangeable. I mean Mopar gets my vin mixed up with renegade at times haha

Ok I will start things, wish I had full stock pics but ooooo well... If we get some more projects up maybe we can get some traction.
