Looks lifted with wheel spacers? What are all those stickers above your PA emissions and inspection stickers that look like they would be blocking the driver's view? Nice rig though.

Nice looking ride. With the lift and mods is the gas mileage still good? What part of PA are you from?

I'm from lancaster county. As far as gas mileage it isn't terrible but it isn't really good. I consider 18mpg average for my type of driving pretty decent

That's cool. I live in Berks County. That isn't bad but lower then what I would want from everyday driver. I have a 2009 Patriot and love it. Including the decent mileage. I would consider buying a second Patriot and modifying that.

If ur gonna get a jeep as a second vehicle I highly suggest an older Cherokee. I had a 1992 with 6" lift on 35s and could go literally anywhere. There was no trail in pa that could stop

I like the Patriot. I believe they are under rated. I had a 2003 Grand Cherokee and really miss that.

I had a 2012 patriot FDII with an RRO lift and 245/65-17's That thing went just about anywhere. I'm sad I had to sell it...
