  1. 2016 Jeep Patriot Towing Package

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Looking to maybe buy a 2016 Jeep Patriot 4x4 2.4L 6 speed High Altitude this week (lease). The problem is, they have none with hitches on them. What comes with the tow prep group? I would have to order one to be able to get that package from the factory. Is this something the dealer can add on...
  2. Installing a trailer hitch

    Exterior
    So I finally decided to add a trailer hitch to the Patriot and I went ahead and bought the Pro-Series class III trailer hitch off amazon for about $96. I do not have the tow hook and did not plan to wire it so the installation was pretty easy. *I am not responsible if the installation does not...
  3. Rear Hitch Recommendations

    Exterior
    Hey Guys, So I've decided to ditch my idea of front tow hooks (for now), and instead install a rear hitch receiver for my pat. Any recommendations? I'm currently looking into the Curt hitches and I'm waiting on my dealer to get back to me with a quote for the Mopar hitch installation. Im...

    Electrical and Audio
    Hi everyone, quick question, does the Mopar wiring harness for hitches require a program change on the Patriots computer? I wouldn't think so but someone mentioned it to me... Thanks Steven

  7. How much can I really pull?

    Exterior
    I'm getting a class 3 hitch for my 2014 Patriot Sport 4x4 6 speed and wanted to know what I can really pull. I know what the manual says but I want to know how much it can really handle. For some reason I can't find the oil cooler anywhere. Mopars website is a joke lol
  8. Hitch Recommendations

    Rocky MK's
    So I just moved to Denver about three months ago, and I'm looking for recommendations from Riot owners in the area. I'd really like to have the MOPAR hitch installed on my 2011 Patriot Latitude. I have an extended warranty on the car until 101K, so all of my work on it so far has been done by...
  9. Hitch, tow hook, and torque

    Exterior
    EDIT: for those looking for this info, the bolts on the tow hook appear to be M10 grade 10.9 (including the smaller bolt that stabilizes the tow hook), which would have a max torque of around 53 ft/lb. To get to 100 ft/lb safely you'll need a 1/2" grade 8 or an M14 grade 8.8 at minimum. M12...

  16. FDII - install a hitch and keep your tow hook too!

    Exterior
    The rear tow hook uses the same frame mounting holes as the hitch. use the right bolts (M12 X 120 mm), and you can use both - hitch on the inside of the frame and hook on the outside of the frame Just install the tow hook back onto your Jeep! The hitch doesn't interfere with it, but you'll...
