Yes, the first Patriot that RRO did was a FWD, mine was the first 4X4 to be completed.

purchased a lift kit from Rocky Road Outfitters for my Jeep Patriot, long story short i purchased a 2010 Jeep Wrangler and no longer need the lift kit. I have not opened the box because i got the lift kit after i sold the Patriot, so everything is brand new and untouched. Asking for $330 for the lift kit or willing to do an even trade of my Patriot lift kit for a coil lift kit for my JK (not a BB) the kit must be complete in new to good condition or trade me for something else thats worth wild make ... me some offers. You can always reference Rocky Road Outfitters website for more information, plus they have pictures with Patriot/Compass already lifted.

Compass lift kit from Rocky Road Outfitters

H,
I was wondering if you can help me, I installed bigger rims and tires on my Compass 255/45/R20 and my front tires are rubbing, if I install a lift kit, would that prevent the rubbing?



Thanks
Enrique

Those tires are 29.03" tall and that's about the same as my 235/60-18's (29.10") and the section width on yours is 10.03" and mine is 9.25". That may be a problem.

Exactly where are they rubbing?

THank you for the quick response, while I decide about the lift or I get it, In the mean time, do you know if I can sacrifice some radius while turning to avoid the rubbing? How can I do that? How can I post some pics? I would like to show you the rub and my tires

I'm not sure what you mean by "sacrifice some radius". If you mean not turning the steering wheel lock to lock the answer is "yes", you will just have a larger turning radius in parking lots and such. It shouldn't effect normal curves and turns on the road.

To post pictures as an attachment you need to have about 25 posts in tech forums or be a paying member, that's to keep out the spam/porn posts.

Otherwise go to a web-hosting site like Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket, set up an account, post pictures there and then copy the "img" code and paste it as a link in your reply.

It is my first time adding pics, hope this works.
Bob, you mentioned that I can reduce the steering wheel from lock to lock to avoid rubbing, how can I do that?
Is something simple? I would like to do it as a temporary solution while I get to the permanent one.

Steering - It's so simple that I'm sure you're just over looking the obvious - don't turn the steering wheel as much, only do like a 3/4 turn. It may take some practice to get the feel for it. There are no mechanical stops for adjustment.

I see what looks like rubbing on the outside edge of the tire but the rubbing in the wheel well would be coming from the inside of the tire. I'm not so sure that wheel spacers wouldn't be the proper solution as opposed to the lift.

Finally I was able to properly place pics, as you can see the rub is in the inside of th ewheel, I already have some spacers in both front wheels, not sure the size, I do not recall the size of the spacer when installed and I do not have a rule with me right now, but is like the widht of 2 USA quarters together.
My concern in adding more spacers is that if the bolts will have enough thread to properly secure the tire, what would you recommend?

Also I have moticed that when hitting a bumper with load in the back, sometimes I have a rub in top of the rear wheel as well.

el721213 - I cleared up the other 2 posts. I've got to think on this one and maybe some of the others will have some suggestions. It does sound like your spacers are pretty thin. I was thinking more along the lines a 2" spacer +/-" . I'm not saying these are the ones to get, but these are VERY good ones, but they will look like this so that your bolt legth won't matter.

That's what I thought. Those will only give the wheels the clearance to clear the brakes, not the clearance for the tires to stop the rubbing. I've never had to use spacers so I need to do some more research.

I need more info. What are the brand of wheels or more important what is the offset or back spacing.
