AS ALWAYS, in lieu of getting a membership or getting a photobucket (or similar) account to link to, I will gladly post pictures for ANYBODY that sends me a request. I will send you my email address and you can shoot them to me. If these pics are at JP let me know and I'll go "steal" them with your approval.

I have gone about 5 miles out on logging roads.My father in law said I would get stuck but it did great and I pulled about 2,000lbs of firewood in my trailer.Only scary part was having the trailer in the back.going over deep craters the trailer and hitch would do a V and got pretty close to the ground but it never hit thank god.Only once going up a rocky dirt hill I slid down because of the weight of the trailer but it got halfway up before gravity took over(no traction on dirt)
Well, after I attended another event, I started a flikr account finally. Now I can share pics of the crazy places my Patriot has been. They may not be extreme but who gets a Patriot extreme mud bogging or rock climbing?? I apologize in advance for not getting many action shots- September '09 trip on Flagpole trail at George Washington National Forest there were only two Wranglers and myself, and as you can see the wet white stuff kept most wheelers inside their 4x4s during a December '09 Green Ridge State Park charity ride. It also handled well in the aftermath of the "crazy" 2-3 feet of snow the Mid-Atlantic received in January.
The part is crazy not because of the location or terrain, but the context of the event: An antique car show. One of the volunteers is a member of another J**p f*r*m/group and made some sort of bet or challenge with the even runners...so several owners showed up and got to park on the show field (enjoy the classics!).
lol, not sure if this is "crazy" but i was at an HSR West event out at Phoenix International Raceway and i took it out on the track for a few laps. it did alright. 80 down the back straight, could have pushed it more but it got squirrely coming into turn one... the best part of taking it out? pulling up on a dodge viper that apparently didnt know it was a race track
oh and it was my step moms compass. im an XJ owner. just thought yal would like to read that
My Patriot will never go off road. I don't count dirt roads as off road. Bought the FWD for that reason.
That is what I had my YJ for and now have the 4 Door JK.
And now we have two Jeeps that my 6'4" 15 year old can fit in the back seat of with me (6') and my wife(5'10") in the front.
I was surprised to find out that a lift kit is a factory/dealer option on the Patriot.
