Black Horse Bull Bar

Just installed this over the past weekend. Very happy with it. Good size for the Patriot - not too overbearing.

I believe on the newer model patriots the fogs are impeded by the nudge bar.

Looks very sturdy bull bar. How much does it weight?

what year is your Patriot? I know in the instructions I have seen, it says if you have a 4x2 you have to trim your splash shield and use the provided nut plates to mount it. If you have a 4x4 you just mount it right on top of your splash shield, same holes, no cutting. I think that is for the older models, because my 2014 4x4 looks like I have to cut the shield and use the mounting nut plates. How was your installation?

You are correct.

Only option you have, if you are a Gen 2 Patriot, is the RRO bars or a custom build.

Truckin' the bread all over your @$$!

It unfortunately does block the fog lights. The bar runs dead center through the fogs.

I have a 2015 Patriot 4x2. I did have to cut the splash shield, but not too much. I cut three 3-4" squares out of the front, and it fit perfectly. As you have probably seen from other posts about this bar, it does not come with instructions. I had to look up the instructions online, which were pretty easy to find.
