  1. My 87 and 88 are low end models with honey interiors and black non tilt columns
  2. Before I got my wj I had a 2014 Jeep Compass. It’s amazing the hate that Jeep hates. It’s a pretty decent vehicle. Mines was the base model. 2.0 6 speed Hyundai automatic , fwd sadly. cons. -AVOID THE CVT -Interior was a on the cheaper side but not horrible , it’s simple and it works. -smaller 2.0 engine was pretty weak but using the auto stick feature I could get it going fairly decently. - it is on the smaller side especially if you’re a big guy. I am 6’3 and room was decent. -sport base model was a little lacking on the features department. pros -better 4x4 system than competitors - First gen Compass Platform started in ‘07 , by 2014 or later most of the kinks had been Worked out - simple design - maintenance like spark plugs , brakes , oil changes , filters are all easy to perform -parts aren’t to expensive on it since it shares it with many other jeeps - 2.0 and 2.4 world engines appear to be fairly solid engines. Hardly hear any horror stories about those. hyundai 6 speed automatic used in it is pretty solid too. Just make sure to change the trans fluid. They say it’s sealed for life but don’t buy into that. -it’s safe. My 14 had standard seat airbags , curtain airbags , front airbags and kept my mom safe when she got hit by a red light runner. There was not a scratch on her. To sum it up , I had my 2014 Compass from 48k up to 122k when it was totaled. only issue I ever had with it was that the a/c recirculation door Actuator went bad which isnt horrible To replace and 1 day before it got totaled I had the check engine come on for a faulty brake light switch. That was it. Not bad compared to what I see working at a Honda dealer. Everything else was normal maintenance. It was a simple but reliable car and did it’s job up till the end. If you Just want a simple daily driver that will get you there and back with pretty good mpg and you want the Jeep name I wouldn’t shy away from it. this is how the Nissan that hit it looked like little compass held up extremely well. It is a safe car
  3. Lots of good info on this site. I remember don (Rip) mentioning this place http://gojeep.willyshotrod.com/HowtoDashClock.htm
  4. Finally decided it’s time to swap the crappy ba10/5 out of my mj. Looking for a 2wd ax15. Doesn’t matter if it’s external or internal willing to drive to California or Arizona if you have one nearby
  5. Super happy to see this one got cotm, I always enjoying seeing updates on this build. Very very much deserved. I love how you’re building your mj.
  6. I Literally Just got done doing this today on my wj. Took me around 5 hours but because the previous person that did this used way to much rtv on everything and clean up took a long time. I’d recommend using the blue fepro gasket. It includes these snap ups that hold up your gasket while you put your oil pan on. It made installation much much easier.
  7. Most likely dealer installed a/c. The switch on my 88 is like that
  8. I work with my hands everyday. I work as a technician at Honda , and when I’m not at work I’m At home working on one of my jeeps. I love doing what I do. Although it can be the incredibly frustrating sometimes , And warranty work sucks , But at the end of even the worst day’s , there’s nothing else I’d want to do. I love learning and getting better at what I do. I love and enjoy my job.
  9. Had the same Thing happen getting out of work a few months ago , turns out the main power cable For the harness that goes to the battery had worked itself loose
  10. Got some fresh rubber on her , I got super lucky yesterday. It was my first time driving her long distance. I had loaded the new tires and planned on installing them at work. The drive there went fantastic but after work I came out and found both front tires had gone flat. Thankfully I had already planned on replacing those tires that same day.
  11. Would anyone that lives in that area mind pulling that tailgate ? I will compensate you for your time. I’ve been needing a tailgate for my 87 really bad. Mine is in pretty bad shape.
  12. Think it might be this one https://comancheclub.com/topic/50644-1jtwd669xgt000831/
