Don't count on it. I seriously doubt any one will make aftermarket suspension parts for it. The Compass will be no more of a 4 wheel drive than the Caliber is. NO transfer case means NO 4 low or 4 high gearing. All I can find on Jeeps website is there is a switch which locks it into a 50/50 split between front/rear, whooppee.GOT said:Perhaps it will be easy to do when those two Jeeps on the same platform go into production... aff-road after market parts may fit the Caliber as well.
The Suzuki Samari was an astoundly GOOD off roader, and it had a smaller wheelbase than the Caliber does. But the Caliber and Compass have other issues that render them worthless for off-road.sr4tuner said:I was thinking about that i never went offroading and want to but think it would flip way to easily because of a seemingly short wheelbase
If people buy a 4x4 Hummer and lower it to a few inches then I'd say you're right. Someone will lift a Caliber with monster tires. lolPSIJunkie87 said:Kudos to the first person to put an 8 inch lift on this thing with some 33" mud tires on it!!LOL just give it time. someones gonna do it.
yea thats what i want... no aspirations of climbing steep inclines of rock... duh... but i think with those big tread tires it would give it that rally dirt eating lookBlueHawaii said:hmmm, I wouldn't go "off roading" in the typical sense, but if AWD I don't see nothing wrong with a little extra clearance to do fire trail runs. sorta' like rally racing dirt roads. a caliber with full on mud tires would look stupid. maybe some rubber like this:
(Vredesteins - anyone remember those goodies? )
or this? (really pushing it)
I'm still waiting on Dodge to gut one and put a full on nitro dragster underneath and go race it Funny Car style
