  2. 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...

  8. towing a camper...

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    I am looking to get a pop-up camper. The thing is, it weighs about 1,870lbs. I am sure I'll be able to pull it, but is the oil cooler really necessary? I know the dealer is going to charge a buttload to put it on and I think I can do without it. Opinions anyone?
