i know its a long shot but id like to see the new patriot with say a 6" lift and 33s. of course it would be custom and probably solid axles but it would be one of a kind.

I would highly recommend the Rocky Road lift! It is a noticable difference but does not really hinder the vehicles performance. The compass and pat look better with the lift and they look more natural as if they should be that height in the first place.

I wouldn't recommend the RRO kit. Do it right and invest in new coils. I just installed coils from http://www.murchisonproducts.com.au/patriot.php and they're great. The factory springs are wimpy if you've noticed with 4 people and cargo in the back. The custom springs from Murchison will give you 2 inches, plus the springs that won't sag as much under a minor load. You'll need front camber bolts too. But you can pick those up at any parts store for $20. Then get'er aligned.

Hey man do you have pics you can post or any links. I was looking into them myself but I wasn't sure. Pics would be nice to see and some details on them!

Many ppl have the RRO kit and it's doing just fine. It was the only thing available for a very long time but it's great that we have other options now. I was the first to install it on a 4WD MK and have no complaints but seldom am I loaded down with ppl or cargo. These new springs may be 'better' but being shipped from Australia adds a lot to the price and if it's just for looks it's not very cost effective. Just sayin'....

Exactly, the rro is just as good. Also there is a company in Quebec that makes a nice looking kit for the pat. It has nice parts.

I did say I 'seldom' loaded it down, that doesn't mean 'never'. On the Hwy 126 'Worlds longest yard sale' the seats were folded down and the roof basket was full and I did haul an antique porcelain kitchen gas stove to Kansas another time.

Rocky road outfitters is probably the most popular:
www.rocky-road.com

Its a pretty simple install if you plan on doing it yourself, and with it you can fit 30" tires under it. Depending on width, you will probably need 1.25" spacers if you are keeping the factory wheels.
