The only items in this category that I'm aware of are from Startech. Go here and click on "News" or "press release" for more info:
The Patriot is available now with FD II but only with the CVT. It's a programing change that drops the ratios down, among other things. FD II is not available on any manual transmission such as your 6 speed.
Thanks for the reply Gramps, as usual - much appreciated! Yes, we are all eager to see some aftermarket parts (suspension lifts, etc), can't wait for them to be available. Seems like there are some keen manufactures to fab them for any volunteers though - i'll try some local crowds here in Oz.
I also contacted Jeep head office in Australia, about importing the Startech gear. Unfortunately none of the performance (chip & exhaust) options are available in Australia, as it is not yet certified for our emmissions laws, etc... bummer.
