Spacer style lift from RRO is never a good idea
anyone wanting to lift, do it right and use new springs / shocks etc.
Spacer lifts maybe the only thing you had for a while but there are other choices
I know for a fact that you'll see some springs becoming available soon !
Save up and do it right!
Cheap is expensive in the long run

do you have some proof of the RRO lift messing up a patriot? please provide some actual proof? I know of a bunch of pat's using the RRO system with great results. the murchinson springs are ok for a non FD II pat, but does not lift a FDII. RRO for me.

Spacer style lifts are never a good idea. Using stock springs and a spacer only puts more stress on the springs and shocks.

That's why you buy longer shocks and how does it create more stress on the springs? It just raises the distance between spring and body. That's like saying spring isolators cause excessive spring wear. The spacers do not add extra weight, so please explain.

I've had the RRO lift on since the first came out with them in '07, no problems at all.

This is supposed to be a PICTURE thread, not a discussion thread.

Last comment here. The rro bolts on top of the strut not in between the spring and strut top. No added stress on any of the stock parts. Do your research.

Thanks! I think the Patriot looks 100% better with this package (lift, tires, spacers). I think Jeep could sell more of them if they just sold them like this.

Or atleast had a package where you could get a factory ~1 inch lift.
