Picked up this 2016 FDII Patriot last year before the world fell apart and used car prices skyrocketed.

Added the Daystar 1.5” spacer lift and bumped up the tire size .5” over stock. Didn’t want to modify the pinch weld or replace the stock wheels to go larger than that.

My overall goal was to maintain a “stock” appearance but build it out to what the Trail Rated Patriot should look like.

8,000 miles on the tires/lift and she’s doing well, though I do have some CV related vibrations when accelerating from a stop.

Just hit 50k so I dumped the trans fluid and replaced both filters. The filter up at the trans fluid cooler was caked, since it hit 85 degrees today I hit the highway and monitored the fluid temp. It maxed out 17 degrees Celsius cooler than prior to service, so that filter was hampering fluid movement for sure.
