AIC's Patriot write up:

So I took the time to do a write up on my adventures with my patriot so far (kinda like what Kenny-g's been doing) I'm not going to repost the whole thing here, but will add any new things. or if you have any questions, feel free to ask me here.

Here is a link to the write up:

Yeah, the forum I linked to is a bit rough on me, but since I take it out regularly, they don't give me as much crap as they used to... But its one of the few local active forums. And I am usually able to go out and fine people to doing stuff with. I just wish I could go to the dealers and ask for the email of everybody who bought a fdii patriot in the last year, see if I can't get a local patriot group going.

Most of those people bought them because it has a trail rated badge for mall crawling. I used my fdii properly as well. I want it back actually, for the wife to drive and have another ultra capable rig. Love the Mk!

I know, but I think a few more people would actually use it off road if they had somebody to go with, and knew where to go.

Not so sure with the pat. Mostly old people and soccer moms own them here. I used mine off road a lot.

I think it would be smart to contact all the FDII MK owners and start some sort of club for anybody who wants to join. I just don't think the typical buyer of the MK is aware of the benefits of being part of a club, and there would be a lot more out off roading if the opportunity was there, especially in AZ where the trails are plentiful. More people off roading = more demand for after market parts, more demand = more availability.

Agreed 100 percent. One thing I wish jeep would do away with, the CVT. I hate it. I would love to have a small transfer case or a super low range 7th gear in the new trans for the fdii
