    Suspension and Tires
    I put these on a few months back along with a new set of Monroe struts and STUCoils. I already had STUCoils, which gave about an inch over stock on my FDII but I wanted to get more lift without any binding of the inner CV joints (especially the front drivers side) when running disconected...

  7. Installed 2" Murchisons (StuCRD) Coils

    Suspension and Tires
    Hi guys, Went up to Murchisons shop today and had the lift installed. After having put about 50kms on today after the lift I've found that the ride is a lot firmer. Cornering has improved and a lot more responsive. Overall, very happy with it this far. Unfortunately I didnt take any before...

    Suspension and Tires
    Hey guys! So I bought a stock 2014 Jeep Patriot 4WD Sport (not the trail-rated model) and was wondering if anyone here knows what the stock clearance is for the vehicle. I remember reading somewhere that it was 19", but I'm not sure if that was just for the trail-rated model. If you can...

The reason I'm putting this in the forum is because I'm a big noob when it comes to car parts and stuff like that so, specifically, how do I go about getting the tires, rims? I already looked into the...
  10. Patriot Body lift

    Suspension and Tires
    I am interested in lifting my Patriot, but I find the rro lift kit a bit costly for the amount of lift you get. I found a body lift that is supposed to fit a patriot and would be able to lift it 4 inches for about 60 dollars. I asume this will be at the cost of ride comfort which does not...

    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...

  18. RRO and new tires installed on my 2010 4X4

    Suspension and Tires
    Got my RRO installed a couple months ago and threw on some new tires last week. Falken Wildpeak A/Ts 235/70/17 on factory wheels. There is a fair amount of rub at full lock, especially turning right but I plan on installing wheel spacers this week to fix it. They are fairly heavy and brought...

    The Outpost
    Anyone interested in a set of STU Coils, please PM me. I am asking for $400 shipped (Within continental US), they are usually $560+ new. I have used them for the past year or so to my satisfaction. However, the lift made it hard for my wife to load the kids everyday, so it has to go :doh: ...
  20. lift/tires-no experience

    Suspension and Tires
    So I just got a 2013 4x4 Jeep Patriot Latitude and I'd like it to be a bit bigger. I know I can buy the RRO lift and put the 225/75/16 tires on with 16" wheels, but I have no kind of experience. How much $ for labor would you all estimate this costing to have someone do it for me? Thanks!
