  1. Patriot - The Gateway Jeep?

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Maybe its a Jeep thing? It just seems as though you can't have too many! I can't think of a Jeep model that I would'nt like to own, thats why I'm always surprised at the way other Jeep owners look down on the Patriot, maybe if they drove one, they would be surprised just how good they are. Sure...
  2. Patriot - The Gateway Jeep?

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    First off, I have to say I love my Patriot. It's the first Jeep I have owned, and after planning to buy my mates 2000 model Grand Cherokee and hating the way it drove, I took the plunge and bought a new Patriot. Now, with 40,000Km on the clock, the jeep "bug" thing has bitten and I have bought...
  3. Need New Wheels? Check These Babies Out!!!

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    What an awesome wheel - has anybody got these on a patriot?
  4. Drinking and driving

    The Sway Bar
    HaHa Crackup! - judging by the skills displayed by bus drivers around here this must happen quite often
  5. 4X4 locked, ESP full off vehicle slowly turns one wheel

    Engine and Drivetrain
    This has hapened to me once on a flat gravel road after driving slowly for a distance - quite weird when it happens. Had 4X4 locked but esp on. Nothing I tried would stop it. Ended up stopping and turning key off and restarting - was all good after that. Its never done it since. Can't explain...
  6. Resale value

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Yep that is shocking! I plan on running mine into the ground. And the dealerships wonder why sales are down. They are simply just too greedy - large dealerships with lotsa sales sharks in suits sipping coffee all day cost lots to run - and it all comes from making a fortune on each trade/sale.

    Here are the Pic's
  8. Pixel Decals

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    I think I saw their Ads on the "Lost Jeeps" website - they do have some great Jeep stuff
  9. Pixel Decals

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    I will take some this weekend in the daylight - I may even wash the mud off first - or would that just look plain wrong on a Jeep?
  10. an exterior paint question, and an interior upholstery question

    Detailing 101
    You could try a "Buffing compound" with a clean rag or cloth and gently hand polish the mark off - Meguiars make some excellent products and have a how to section on their website Try a spray on foaming upholstery cleaner - worked well on my chocky marks on my "yes esentials" seats (maybe also...
  11. Pixel Decals

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Just a quick note to recommend Pixel Decals - I ordered a number of decals for my Patriot online, they sent them all the way to New Zealand for me. The business I sent them too, misplaced them, and when I told Pixel that they had gone astray they even offered to send another set free of charge-...
  12. Suspension Lift - another way?

    Suspension and Tires
    With regard to the front end, your are probably correct. The rear end just looks so simple though it becomes a case of wondering why not. But yeah you are on the money with why not just buy a wrangler? but I suppose you could say the same thing about many of the mods that are seen on this site...
  13. Suspension Lift - another way?

    Suspension and Tires
    Dude! - you are totally missing the point. I was'nt suggesting seperating the floor pan from the body in any way shape or form - that is plain dumb. Read my starter post again. everything in the suspension/diff area is mounted in a "cradle" that is bolted to the unibody (1 at front & 1 at...
  14. Why do the "pro reviewers" hate the Patriot?

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Thats good to know Double D - always wondered how the Highlander would stack up? - in NZ the highlander would be nearly twice the price. How would they compare offroad?

    NZ Patriot......
  16. Weight reduction ideas?

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Was'nt trying to be a smart ass, I just can't imagine removing stuff that will potentially cause me problems - ie spare wheel and jack. On a serious note though, my wifes new suzuki swift came with a sealant/compressor kit to save weight and space instead of a spare wheel. My driving is mainly...
  17. Freedom Drive 2?

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Does anybody have a Patriot with FD2 that is Right Hand Drive. I tried to find an FD2 Patriot here in NZ when I bought mine, but the dealer did'nt even know what FD2 was! Just wondered if they are available in any market apart from the US in Left Hook?
  18. Fuel Capacity

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    I now carry a 5litre fuel can in the back at all times - its amazing the stress it takes away when fuel is getting low.
  19. Who here is a Prepper?

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    The thread on reducing weight got me thinking about what I carry in my Pat on a day to day basis, and I started to wonder if I am the only one that carries extra stuff to get by in tricky situations? One of the reasons I bought the Patriot, is that it has extra capability to get through bad...
  20. Weight reduction ideas?

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Are you serious? you would S#!T a brick if you saw what I carry in my Pat on a daily basis. 200KG of parts & tools plus...... 12v Compressor 4WD recovery kit Jumper leads Roof bag Get Home Bag Tie downs First Aid Kit Extra Fuel The List goes on........ And I still get 23MPG if I drive like a...
