    I had the same problem but for some reason it straightened itself out over time. It's not dead on but, it's close.

    Look in your owners manual and it should tell you how to calibrate your compass. Have you tried disconnecting the battery for 3-5 minutes and then reconnecting it? Another thing to try is, if you can, remove your CB and see if your compass goes back to normal. You may have some electrical interference.

    Its most likely a magnetic device in the CB such ad the speaker. You could relocated the compass.

    Your compass is located directly underneath the top panel of the center stack. Your CB magnet will throw it off.

    As mentioned above, if you've got anything magnetic or metallic above the center of the dash, it messes with the compass.

    Did you put the front control arms in the rear? I heard that would make the Jeep think it's going backwards. 😎

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
