The gray vehicle in the first video is a Toyota Rav4, if I’m not mistaken, but definitely not a Jeep Compass. A pedantic point considering the context, i know, but for sake of accuracy i thought I’d point that out.

LOL! I know, man, and I get it. You’re coming from a point of personal preference. I’ve just heard the argument (from others, and cast way more broadly) so many times. I dunno, i applaud the guys taking the hard path, or at least the unpopular one.

The exact opposite argument was made in the 90's when it was “all these guys in their modded Integras and Civics”. So which is it? Are we supposed to do something different, or go the same route as everyone else? Or just buy and leave everything stock and content ourselves that our boring grocery-getter is only ever Read more

I mean, the profile looks like they did a good job pushing the wheels forward toward the corners. Maybe they’s putting the axle in front of the engine as opposed to behind it? Mid-engine FWD?

Yeah, mine lives a pretty sedate existence, just racking up miles on the highway. No real offroading to be done around here, and it’s only a 2WD anyway.

I attempted the job once before, i think i need a ratcheting wrench to get at those bracket bolts. In the GC engine bay, there’s so many hoses and wire bundles on the driver side right in that area, it’s hard to get a regular ratchet and socket in there.

I mean, it may be too niche to survive, but please, let’s at least appreciate that they’re trying to add some variety to the market, and not another CUV sized somewhere between larger-than-a-compact-but-smaller-than-a-midsize.

Nobody in that picture, except DJT, looks at all pleased to be there.
