I have a 2011 Jeep Patriot with black Motegi wheels with a red lip. I would like to put a 3" maybe a little bigger life on it. I hear patriots only have full suspension lifts for a 2011 does anyone know if that is truth? If anyone has any suggestions on good lifts please let me know. I also would like to swap out the headlights to HID's. My jeep is a 2.4L sport 4x4 CVT.

You have two options:

Stu Coils (about 1 inch of lift):

RRO spacers lift (2 1/4" lift):

I personally am going to be ordering the RRO lift this next week. you cannot combine the two, the best, tallest, lift would be the RRO, and a 29.5" tall tire.

I had seen the RRO before i did not know that was the biggest choice. Thanks for the info. Do you know if there are many if any performance parts to increase hp and torque, but maintain mileage if not increase it. I can replace the intake but i hear it voids warranty on it?

any mods like that COULD void your warranty, the for lift should not, its sold under the mopar name available through the dealer (at twice the price) I use the rule of thumb, if its available through the dealer it probably won't void your warranty, especially if they install it.
