How high can I lift my 2016 jeep patriot?
I already confirmed a 2-1/8" lift kit exists for the patriot. Kit by rocky road outfitters. Any info on this kit? I read some bad/mixed reviews. If I get it lifted, what are the biggest tires I can fit on there? My goal is to get it as high as possible for a patriot. I understand lifting isn't a big thing for patriots, but I'm just wanting to try. If, for some reason, I can't get it lifted, what are the biggest tires I can fit that would give me a little boost?
big tires yes will ad 2-4 more inches to your 2 1/2... i dont know where you live but out here there are several tire rim shops and or for off road...and has some good stuff if you having seen it yet > www.carid.com/jeep-patriot-suspension-systems/
The sky's the limit baby! You're gonna need a ladder!
2 1/8 Is the limit. And the reviews are bad. I have installed a few of these kits. And I am no longer doing them. The rear control arms do help correct the alignment. But not all the way. The front ball joints take a beating due to the angle they run at when the control arm angle is changed. The Camber bolts supplied with the kit don't always allow for enough adjustment to correct camber. As for tires a 245/65 17 is about the biggest tire that will fit. That gives you about an extra 3/4 inch of overall lift. For the money and effort I dont think you will be satisfied with the results.
You're awesome. That's what I was afraid of with that kit. Thanks a bunch!
If that wasn't enough. I forgot to mention, The guy who puts these kits together at Rocky road. Is sometimes out of parts or otherwise very, very slow shipping kits.
