    The Patriot is getting some much needed love......Finally

    Well, the old pat has told me it's time to do some work on it. The Throttle body has failed causing it to go into limp mode. I cleaned it, but the damage was already done. Caused by a failed PCV valve letting oil into the intake and gumming up the TB. So she's in the shop now, waiting for...

    Anyone using Cooper AT3 XLT tires?

    I just noticed these. I am thinking about getting them in 285/75/17 when I get my new (to me) JKU. What are everyone's thoughts on these. I ran Maxx and BFG AT on my last JKU. AT's being the better of the two for my usage. I am thinking the AT3 would be a great all rounder!

    Well, I am coming back in a new'ish JKU!

    I tried to use the patriot as an overlandish rig. It's no good off road for our areas. Stuff I use to sail right on through doing 80kph plus I have to go 20kph in the pat. So...instead of buying another gas mizer, we are getting a 2013 up JKU in white. As soon as well sell our current...

    Drove a JKU and JLU back to back yesterday...JK is still better.

    I drove a JKU and JLU back to back yesterday while the patriot was in getting tire reprogramming. In my opinion the JKU rides better, is quieter, and just an overall better vehicle than the JL. I was dazzled by the electronic gadgetry in the JL and one thing that is awesome is the 4WD auto...

    Normal looking front bumper for 2005 suburban

    Trying to find a bumper that does not look like it came from the thunderdome. ARB has a decent one. The LC100 converted ARB is probably the best. Any others that are normal looking. There are also a few for the earlier suburbans etc, but most for the 2005 look terrible and are WAY TO BIG!
