    I’ve been posting a lot lately, but I’ve just been so excited to work on my pat. Today I plasti dipped angry eyes on my 08’ I’ve heard of people buying the ones for newer models and trimming the back but I thought I would try this first. I have to say i am happy with the results. I also used the...

    Hey guys, I’m relatively new here. I’ve had my pat for a few years and it wasn’t until I went to trad it in that i realized how much I love my jeep. I decided why strap myself with a payment when i could improve the car I love. Go check out my build on instagram if you’re interested in following...

Felt like I had a new car...and then something weird started to happen. I drove to the store yesterday as usual, went...

    Hi! I bought a 2008 Patriot FDi last week, and am excited to get off the road and onto the dunes! Since I've already referred to this forum like, 100 times, I figured I'd go ahead and join. My last car was a 2010 Dodge Challenger (RIP, dear friend), and this is my first 4x4, so I'm excited to...

    Since one of the two contacts for recharging the flashlight bent behind the plastic, and makes not contact anymore, I need to remove the rear dome light to pull it out. Is there some hidden spring, lock, whatever or I can simply pop it out with a screwdriver? Pat 2008 here. Thanks Edit: found...

    Hey all I've recently bought a 2008 Patriot, second hand. I'm looking to upgrade the head unit. Previous owner had removed OEM headunit, and replaced it with an Alpine single DIN one, seemingly many years ago. It needs to be replaced, and I am going to upgrade it to (google this, as I can't...

    Hi, I just purchased a 2008 Patriot and want to replace the current OEM radio (I think I was told it's a 1.5 Din) with an aftermarket double din radio, the Power Acoustik PDN-626B. I've been doing some research to make sure I purchase all of the necessary parts for the upgrade, but I just...

    Good afternoon, This problem began a year ago and has never been resolved. I went to go to work, I started my jeep, and couldn't pull it from park. When I figured out the switch on the side to unlock it, and go to work, I drove away without issue. Since that day I have never been able to shift...

    I've had a lot of people ask me how I mounted my tablet in my Jeep, because it actually looks pretty OEM. In person, it's not perfect, but it's only about 80% done. Here is how I installed my LG Gpad 8.4" tablet in my Jeep. For starters, do not do this to your only bezel, buy a backup. It's...

    New here and new to patriot. Bought 08(manufacture date 8-08) yesterday and it has a rough idle when stopped in park or in drive while break is applied. Rough feel/vibration goes away when gas is pushed. When lifting the hood the engine is visually vibrating more than should be. I found a...

    I am planning on putting my Kenwood KDC-X897 in the Jeep soonish. (I really don't like having an external XM receiver attached to the vents. and I miss being able to plug my phone in easily with one wire rather than two...) Looking around the internet reveals several interfaces for the 2008 MY...

    Hello, My 2008 Jeep Patriot will not go over 10 mph. Wife was using it today and as she pulled on to the road, it would not go over 10 mph. The 4 Wheel drive was on because it has been snowing here. Now that light is flashing and the Traction light is flashing as well. She has turned off the...

    I have a 2008 Sport with 149000 on it. Standard 2.4L. I'll be installing the RRO lift this week. I have my eye on a set of rims (American Racing) 16x7 5x4.5s. I lifted another Patriot back in 2008. The only issue I had was torque steer became very evident on the highway. The newer product...

    Hi guys, thanks for reading. Needing some insight from people with experience. I have a 2008 Patriot 2WD 5-speed. I got it at 70k 2 years ago, now it's at 140k. The slave cylinder went at 130k and cost me $800. I PARTIALLY blame that on the vehicle's awful stability control making poor...

    Trying to build a list of parts that I'll need for the conversion but having some trouble locating the part numbers. I'll post a list of the parts and when I get the numbers I'll update the list. Hopefully this will help anyone with the same goals. As of right now, we know that the bumper, and...

    I'm looking to put a lift on the Patriot. It's an '08 model. How big of a lift is possible? What kind of tires would I need to upgrade to?
