Very cool! It looks like with that spring perch removed you could go taller/wider with the correct wheel offset.

Thanks,

Yes we could go taller and move to a 33 but what wear and tear will that cause on drivetrain??

I probably think not much if you find a lighter tire.

But then again may not get that tall of a tire because the back tires on both sides even with the lift are an inch away from the wheel well. this is would be the bottom corners of the back doors meet the wheel wheel.

Ill get pics up for a better under standing.

Do the front springs rub against the tire when the struts are fully compressed?

You think they might rub especially since the spring perch was removed but no they dont I tested multiple flexing all the way around. The front springs at full compression still stop where the spring perch use to be.

Also with the spaces on I clear the springs completely and at full compression I still have inches inbetween the tire and top of the wheel well.

So 33s are a possibility definitely a 32 but I would try to find like a 32x9.5 or 33x 9.5 that way it reduces modes to the wheel-well when you go full lock either that or get thicker wheel spacers and better back spacing wheels but you probably would need fender flares at that point. which I say we should go for it. The patriot is missing solid axels and the v6. wish the Pat was setup like the older Cherokees.

So here are some more Pics of my Pat

these are right at 31 inch tires, notice the picture drivers side rear the one with my hand in it. there is only about 1.25in of space
before hitting the wheel-well. Probably could fit a 32 under here. we will see because Im going to go bigger.

Yes the tires are not a wide aggressive stance but they are still 31's

Question, will this lift kit fit my 2015 patriot? The fitment guide says no, but has the suspension changed since 2011? Thanks for any help.

Thanks for the answer. I see that people who buy the RRO lift say that they get different rear adjustment links from moog. Would that be smart for me to do if I purchase this kit?

Even more pics

first time next to another patriot.

You can definitely see the lift difference.

Stock Height 9" inches... now has right at 15" inches. I have exactly 4 inches gained between the tire and lift combo.

This is a FDI next to me in white.
