New Patriot owner

Very happy so far, just got it this Sunday. Looking to put a black horse bull bar on it though. Any other suggestions for bull bars? Thanks!

It's the bar that comes just under the front bumper but doesn't cover the grill it's nice

Rocky road outfitters is looking to build one that can fit a winch behind it... All the other ones I've seen block your fog lights on the 2011 and up models.

looks like Black Horse makes one...or a few. Available in black or stainless. They look pretty sharp. google it. lots of stuff...looks like most of it for just over $200. And congratulations on the new Patriot!

Dont do it!!! The pictures that they have of the Patriot with the bull bar are photoshopped. I'm a member on a different forum where others have bought this bull bar. It does cover the fog lights, and i dont believe there is a bar available that doesn't cover them. Do some searches and you'll see what i mean.

Aw man that blows! Lucky i didn't buy it. I really want a bull bar but not if it's gonna cover up the fog lights. Thanks for the heads up.

Yeah just wanted to make sure you didn't get it and be disappointed because the picture is misleading.

I was set on ordering it this Friday so I'm glad you replied to my thread. I'm looking for a lift kit now or something. Make it look a bit more rugged, ya know? Thanks again man.

Well there are two different options for lifts.. The RRO lift or getting Stu Coils. The RRO lifts 2" and the Stus only 1". I'm definitely looking into getting the RRO myself. I think it makes the Patriot look a lot better. I believe some dealerships even use RRO to lift the Patriot since a Mopar lift doesn't exist.

I checked out the RRO it definitely looks better. I didn't really see much for the Patriot. And it's better if it's easier to install I'd like to do it myself. Thanks a lot.
