  1. Suspension and Tires
    I am sorry for asking this as it drives most crazy but my question is a little different. I can quickly find what the biggest tires I can put on my Jeep are if it were stock but I am having trouble finding anything about bigger tires for non-stock Jeeps. Between my aftermarket rims and my...

    *I've done a QUICK search and I didn't find anything useful.* I bought aftermarket power locks for my base model 2015 Pat. When I installed all of them, the rear actuators TRIES to actuate and unlock/lock the door but it doesn't have enough force. HOWEVER, when the engine is started and on...

    Hello Everyone: I have looked through a lot of the forums without much luck, so I thought I would post another thread. My apologies of this information *is* located somewhere else, but I could not find it. My 5-speed 2008 Patriot has a black rubber shifter boot (standard), but the seams are...

    Has anyone looked into getting a tubular or pre-runner style bumper intended for a wrangler, and modifying it for the Patriot? The bumpers that are available are all too big and heavy for my liking. Any thoughts?
  5. Electrical and Audio
    I just bought my White 2012 Jeep Patriot. :pepper: I am going to replace my stereo with a touch screen. So, I wanted some opinions. I am going without NAV, I have a GPS already, plus maybe no Satellite radio. Opinions on aftermarket vs factor? If you have an aftermarket, what one do you...

    I just replaced all of the stock speakers with 4 kicker DS693s. I just have the stock head unit with 4 speaker system on my 2012 patriot. All of the speakers are working, but I feel like I have lost volume and have have almost no bass (even worse than the stock speakers) and I know that the...

    Where exactly are the stock tweeters located? Where do you recommend installing after market tweeters?
  8. Suspension and Tires
    I bought some AM 22" wheels, and a set of new TPMS sensors. I am hoping this is a rumor, do they have to drill a hole in my brand new rims for the TPMS? I am also confused on the resetting of the sensors? Do I just have to drive a certain amount of miles at a certain speed for them to sync to my...

    So I currently have a pair of MTX Thunders 5500 taking up my entire trunk. Im only running 600 watt 450 rms alpine amp (does no justice to my subs) but am looking to "downgrade" to shallows. Does anyone have the aftermarket shallow subs in there riot. Just looking to get some info on how the...

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I put some new shoes on my 2011 Patriot Sport 4x4 (now dubbed "The Stormtrooper"), and the fitment combination that I used has worked perfectly. WHEELS: 16x7" Unique Series-297 with a 4" backspacing /// All black with black center caps and black lugs...

    My Patriot didn't come with fog lights. I ordered a set of Pilot lights for $32.82 (). Here is how I installed them: - Removed the inner fender splash cover for easier access. - Removed black plastic cover. - Drilled the hole from underneath to use the existing L-shaped bracket. - Used...
  12. Exterior
    I was at the local auto show today and I was wondering if anyone has seen it done or know if it could be done... I'm interested in putting a Jeep Commander (or 2009-2010 Liberty) grill on a Jeep Patriot. I suppose more specifically, will it fit? I'd like to know if I would still have room to...
