Sup Jeep Forum...
Let me introduce myself, my name Dean and I from Guam. Okay...my girlfriend and I just recently purchased a 07 Patriot Limited, auto trans., body is 9/10, all service records on carfax.com, and according to the previous owner the 4x4 has never been engaged, and at first didn't seem to have any mechanical problems. After a month of owning it I started noticing somethings: Very bad inner front tire ware; A lot of play and noise in steering if I hit a bump, especially in reverse; Vehicle sputters from time to time when idolling at a traffic light; And sometimes a little hesitant on take-offs. But there are still a lot of enjoyment dispite all the problems. This is the first Jeep that I have ever owned and operated, I'm more of a Toyota man.
Well this weekend we are starting the "PATRIOT PROJECT". Starting with replacing the cv axles because of the shake, rattle and roll and switching the treads from GY Integrity's to GY Wrangler SR-A's. I guess what I'm asking is if anyone here has some tips on where to start and what not to mess with that'll be great. Because we all know that "Stealerships" don't give a damn. So please I am open for opinions.
Thanks jeep forum.....Peace and Chicken Grease!!!!
