Wanted to give you guys a little update on the HL. Things are gonna be slow for this one, there's not a whole lot of info on it, there is a little bit for the kluger on the au forum but not many mods. I've been trying to figure out what the biggest tire size that I can throw on it but no one seems to know lol so it's gonna be a get it and test fit lol.

I was doing some hunting around as well. I am thinking not much bigger than whats on it now. I was next to an older FDII yesterday, you should have heard the noises out of the CVT on that one. Dude didn't care I guess. But the scratching and squealing and studdering that came from that was brutal. SOOOOO happy that I did not keep mine. ha ha. I think there are some brushguards and grill guards etc available for the lander. Lots of room now hey?

I think the biggest tire I can fit will be a 255/65/17 although...hankook makes a 255/70 in the atm, I really like those! But I think it would sit right against the spring perch. I know no one really wheels these things and that's ok, but no one even maximizes the their potential either...I will be one of the first lol. The room is awesome! The removable middle seat is freakin great the kids have their own captains chair...Lol no more fighting in the back seat lol.

Man! Freakin cvt! My neighbor has a 2014 pathfinder with about 35k on it, she is on her 3rd cvt...no joke this is her 3rd transmission in 35k miles, she is looking into lemon laws. Of it were me I would just drop it off at the dealer and hand them the keys!

ha ha. My wife had our oldest from a previous relationship. I met them when he was 5, his dad lives away so only saw him once or twice a year. I was pretty well his dad for all that time. Then the year we got married we had our second little guy. He has autism and is an amazing kid. he's brilliant. But the good thing is that His brother never fought with him at all. looked after him really.

That's really awesome! I remember you talking about your son having autism and using your jk to camp with him.

Sorry for digging this up but just posting to bump it up for easier retrieval. I finally got a Patriot of my own today and will be reading in here for ideas!

2015 Patriot Sport 4x4. FD1 drivetrain with the 6 speed auto. If i am not mistaken it should have the FDII springs which would have it to the same height as you had at the end.
