Google+ pictures is handy.
to post a open the one you want in the G+ viewer, then right click on the image and copy the url


you get something like: "https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-tsALVe5PNeM/VEaWCmVVIeI/AAAAAAAAc5E/rNVdvFO8jJM/w936-h551-no/Capture.PNG"
change the numbers after /w and /h
/w640 is the max width before the site will resize them. If you don't know the aspect ratio just put 0 for height

click the insert image button and paste in the url as: "https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-tsALVe5PNeM/VEaWCmVVIeI/AAAAAAAAc5E/rNVdvFO8jJM/w640-h0-no/Capture.PNG"

Then highlight all that and insert a web url as "https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-tsALVe5PNeM/VEaWCmVVIeI/AAAAAAAAc5E/rNVdvFO8jJM/w0-h0-no/Capture.PNG"
then people can click on your picture if they want a full size image.

Also for youtube videos you just have to click the YouTube button then insert the characters after "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=" such as "R_a-bY8MonA"

Bumpers and bull bars are asked frequently too, which ones fit, block fogs, etc...

RRO bumper kits can be used for all model years without blocking your fog lights, which can be found here: Rocky Road Outfitters Patriot Bumper

Black Horse bar can be used for all model years, but it will block fog lights on 2011 and newer models, which can be found here: Black Horse Bar (Black) or Black Horse Bar (Stainless)

How about: "Do 15" rims fit? Will any from older Jeeps (XJ, TJ, etc.) work?"
15" Wheels and 30" tires on your Patriot (no spacers): Test Fit Results
Patriot wheels sizing

Is there a way to add disconnects?

I can just copy/paste the entire youtube link straight to a thread without the button, and it'll show the video.

Anyone know why this message keeps popping up? Everything else is in English except this. I'm pretty sure it's Italian.

Just noticed this doesn't have "How can I increase performance?" "With great difficulty. There's still no tuner available, and the best you can do for parts is double-platinum plugs, a K&N or AEM CAI, and a Magnaflow cat-back exhaust." I don't recall seeing anything about trailer hitches either, and that's not too uncommon.
