  1. Suspension and Tires
    Hey all, I just got a quote from chrysler saying I have weak struts, and need all joints and bushings replaced which is going to cost about $3200. I have 4 new struts, but i was wondering if there is a different part number for the trail rated fd2 suspension. The rear sags almost onto the wheels...
  2. Suspension and Tires
    My 2013 FDII (60k mi) is in need of new rear shocks. After doing a bit of research I have come to the understanding that OEM FDII shocks are different from other Patriot OEM shocks due to having different valving, which seems confirmed by Mopar having two different part numbers for rear shocks...

    After 6 months of searching and a trip across the state line i have finally found and purchased an FDII Patriot! I am not new to the jeep community but this is my first Patriot so any tips and advice is welcomed and appreciated. My plan for the next year is to install an STU 2" coil lift kit...

    Just got our 2012 Patriot FD2. We've had a Liberty KK and a JK Rubicon- but so far we love the Patriot (nicknamed the Fat-Riot). Took it up some mountain roads near Mt. Ranier. Was VERY impressed. We live in the city and its a lot more practical than the Ruby...but still has some off road chops...
  5. Suspension and Tires
    I bought my 2012 FDI Jeep Patriot Sport used with about 8,000 miles. I knew the previous owner had upgraded the wheels to the OEM 17" alloy wheels so today I decided to measure my ground clearance expecting it to be around 8.4 inches because of the height added from the larger wheels. However...

    I know that in Freedom Drive II vehicles they are rated for 19" , but what about for those of us with Freedom Drive I? Is there a difference? Can any FDI owners speak for experience? Thanks in advance!
  7. Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    I just got myself a new Patriot with Freedom Drive I 4WD. My question is; what is the difference between Freedom Drive I and Freedom Drive II? Is there anything off-road related I can't/shouldn't do because I have FDI rather than FDII? Also, what's the most you've done off-road with your FDI...

    Just put my deposit down on a Silver 2012 Patriot Latitude 4x4 FDII... Should be about 6 weeks until its here from the factory...He banged me out for 24,200... does that should about right? The only option I took was the FDII package. Can't wait to see it and start playing around with it. Hope...

    For three years I have been wanting a Patriot, at long last the dream came true! I would like to introduce for the first time my 2011 Jeep Patriot FDII 70th Anniversary Edition. I called to conclude the deal last Tuesday and picked it up on Friday. I would have liked to pick it up sooner but...

    Hi folks, I picked up my new (to me) Trail Rated 2008 Patriot North Edition (khaki) a couple weeks ago with only 40k kms on it. I traded in my 2001 Mercedes E55 AMG for it. It was heartbreaking to let it go, but I needed to actually not get stuck this winter. I figure this Patriot is the tool I...
