    Yeah, thats why I started looking. A guy in CO Springs has one so it peaked my interest. Def a jeep if its off the pavement. Badass.

    plus, i think the patriot would be a sweet DD/fire road explorer. Great mileage, comfy, can get a manual, and would compliment a Wrangler well in a garage.

    Must have good skids under that one! Does the Patriot have a 2 speed T-case? (HI/LO range)

    Sounded like it was struggling when he climbed that one bump. Plus he hit it kind of hard!


    As long as the people remain armed,
    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.

    We use to have another guy here in the springs that wheeled his patriot. Don't know what happened, to him. They are capable rigs. He went out with me and two others one time to a trail here called Wheeler Lake (you can find youtube on it) and he was the only one of three jeeps that didn't break anything. I broke a front axle u-joint (my jeep at the time was a YJ on 33's), a Rubicon with 35's ripped a front control arm off, and a TJ on 40's built to the teeth had the tranny go out.
