JP or JW? '09 Jeep Compass

Postby rujero » July 14th, 2015, 9:42 pm

Hi everyone,

So trying to find an affordable wrangler on a full-time student's budget is next to impossible in the Boston area. Everything I found in my price range had rotting frames from the salt in the roads or needed serious bodywork or parts repairs, and I don't know how to do either myself. I didn't plan on ever taking it off-road but I needed something with 4 wheel drive for the winters here, so I found a light khaki 2009 Jeep Compass Sport. It's a manual 5-speed with 150k miles on it. It has a new clutch and starter and should last me at least the next two years until I finish school. Either way I'm going to keep it until it dies.

Inspired by you guys here at the forum, I have decided to customize it, but in light of the new movie, I can't decide on making it a Jurassic Park or Jurassic World vehicle. I know the color is not really correct, but I figure it's close enough. Painting it is not really an option for financial reasons.

So... JP red theme? Or JW blue?

The horizontal blue stripe looks killer on that body shape! I'd go with that final one!

PS wonder if you could get some black fender molding/fender flares. That would make it even cooler!

Im digging the horizontal stripe as well!

Maybe do the inlayed portion of the spokes blue as well? Just spitballin.

I think everyone loves the JP vehicles in general over JW. I'm saying this as a guy who drives a JW themed truck, the new vehicles are just stupid and uninspired. Really? A single blue stripe and a logo with no words? Is this "less is more" or what? I hate it, but I drive it everyday because somehow it managed to look better on an Xterra than it ever did on a Mercedes G-class.

That having been said, I'd do the JW blue but with the JP angled stripes that you showed in the first picture. The third pic is mind of "meh" and the second... I dunno. The red just doesn't seem to work with it for some reason. That first pic? I'm loving that.

I wish the Compass was silver or white like the JW vehicles :-(
