Ideas

I need some ideas for builds and things I can add to my Jeep. Nothing too expensive that will break the bank. Haven’t done anything big and needs to start standing out

Here's a couple ideas. LED light bar, vent shades, hood deflector, hitch. I also added some vinyl wrap to some interior pieces.

Edit: I have no idea why the hitch pic is upside down

Personally I think red tow hooks look great and make your vehicle pop-out from the rest.

Tow hook could come in handy in a lot of situations. Also great for warding off deer. Moose not so much.

Oh, I have a few ideas.....

Plus of course a Curt class 3 hitch receiver, stickers, custom license plate, and PLEASE NO ANGRY EYES!!! I was skittish of those things when I first saw them, but now they're disturbingly cliche. You might stand out in a small local group, but not so much among the Patriot community at large. Also maybe a crank window mod would help you stand out? Removal of any computerized control of exterior lighting? Something to ensure you do the driving yourself, ya know? Plus the extra Jeep points you could get.

Yes breadtruck, I know not everybody has them, but on JPATW, it seems like almost every other person equips a set of angry eyes. And if it's not angry eyes, it's probably halos or other LED/HID crap that'll blind all the other drivers or at the very least screw with their eyes a bit and make driving quite a bit less pleasant.

The worst were those spinner hubcaps. You couldn't tell if a car was actually stopping at an intersection.

Oh, just thinking . . . cute eyelashes over angry eyes might work for a pretty girl with a bad attitude.

I’ll be adding bumper and roof led light bar, roof cargo rack, back up led lights installed in bumper, grill flag decal, trailer hitch, rgb interior and under cab lighting, blue dash leds, and a few other mods I’m gonna post on my Instagram sight. If you want it I’ll give you it. Also look on Instagram at Jeep Patriot life. I’m chillyfish15

functional or cosmetic?
besides what others mentioned,
aggressive tire treads,
also consider an air tank to fill up your own tires,
tow hooks if you don't have FDII

Well so far I have all terrain tires, a cb set up, planning on buying a lift and eventually a new bumper, along with a rgb light bar. Inside I have blue LEDs. I’m thinking of buying stickers and covering my hood in them
