2008 Patriot lift kit HELP

OK, im trying to find a lift kit for my 2008 Patriot but im not sure if any of them will actually fit my patriot. Can someone post a link, name, model number of a lift kit that will fit my 2008 patriot 4x4 sport!

Also if they could estimate on a price for install that would be great too!!


Thanks for any help!!

Revtek just released a spacer lift as well. They don't list it on their site, but they have the part number up on their facebook.

There are also CRDSTU coils. There is a thread in this forum somewhere with info on the coils.

It's takes about 3-5 hours depending on who you go to, and what they charge hourly. They usually have two people work'n on it. It's typically between 400-500 bucks (at dealers and 4x4 shops). If anyone quotes you more - thank them for there time, lol, and find someone else

A place like PepBoys.. (even Colony Tire can do it) lol... may actually charge less.

I don't think that anybody leaves the factory tires on when they do the lift. Not that you have to change them but most do. That's another $400-$800.

The RRO kit really isn't so hard that you can't DIY. If you can change a tire or struts/shocks then you should be able to save yourself a lot of money. Maybe get the help of a friend and take a nice spring day and just do it. It's just a nuts and bolts job plus an alignment.

^is right. No one keeps the original tires,but if you DIY - you can use those funds toward the tires.

I was also going to mention that it can't be much harder than a WK to lift, but didn't want to stick my foot in my mouth, lol - I don't know that much, mechanically, about the MK's. And I would recommend working with a loyal friend for those.

The front spacers are VERY easy (tech level 1). The rears take some grunt work and a little bit of ingenuity to get the upper control arms on/off and shove the struts back up in there (tech level 3). If a 60 year old geezer can do it alone how hard can it be? An 18 year old and a sturdy friend shouldn't have much trouble at all. A GOOD service jack is indispensable!

On the RRO kit the struts are dealt with as sub assemblies, complete units, no dis-assembly required.

On CRD Stu's kits the strut springs are replaced so you would need a coil spring compressor.

Revtek's sound similar to the RRO set up.

My brother is a jeep owner (a 95 grand Cherokee) so im sure he would help me out. Yeah i planned on buying some new wheels/tires to go along with it. jacking it up shouldnt be a problem, i have a close friend who owns a junk yard with a car lift.

How high should i lift it, 3 1/2 in? With 20's on it? what do you recommend?

Thanks again, Everyone is so nice and helpful on here!!!
