    2015 Jeep Patriot overlander build.

    Huh... that is a surprise that RC makes a lift for the Patriot, Nice to have yet another option for a lift. Ironic that the recommended tire size with the kit is the 245/65R17s. Also curious where you got the tune?

    Couldn't afford a Taco, so I got a Dako: 1st Gen Dakota Budget Build

    Nice little 1st gen. I have considered Dak builds in the past but ended up going the full size route with my K5 instead, One option for a winch would be to fab up or find a front receiver hitch for the truck. Easiest way about it would be taking a universal hitch kit and making some brackets...

    Project Nomad: 1986 GMC Jimmy Sierra Classic

    Oh i am well aware of the 14b SF from having a 1994 Gmc Sierra K1500 Diesel with the F44 package. The F44 was that LD2500/1500HD packaging. Totally forgot about those in the scheme of things. Bonus points for the fact that if i went the route of a 4x4 version of it i can retain my current...

    1973 Wagoneer - Full Size SHTF and camping goodness!

    Finally got updated on this, Nice score on the F250! Ironically enough i just picked up one myself recently though a bit older with it being a 1969 but it is an F250 Ranger Camper Special much like yours.

    Project Nomad: 1986 GMC Jimmy Sierra Classic

    Slight shift in plans with this truck mostly due to other plans changing. It looks like getting the '69 K5 is not feasible due to cost of getting it here. Plus further going over of this one revealed that it would be a good candidate for mild restoration. So the goal now is to get rid of the...

    Time to start a 'Riot! 2015 Jeep Patriot sport build.

    Still around, No further progress made mostly due to work picking up a lot in the past couple months. Have decided not to run the 17" tires on the Patriot but am still lifting it to gain some ground clearance. The plan tire wise is to stick to 215s on 16" Wheels. This is mostly due to trying to...

    Time to start a 'Riot! 2015 Jeep Patriot sport build.

    This is a pic of a Series I (like Jhill had) with 245/70R17s with a lift and 1 1/4" spacers on it. The spacers were to clear the spring perch i am assuming. Maybe the pinch weld as well. Either way it gives me a good idea of what mine will look like on the new tires as well as looking at your...

    1980 CJ7 build

    This is what Novak has to say on the TF727 and the D300: Jeep The 727 was only available for Jeeps with the Jeep 208, 219, 228 & 229 and featured a 23 spline output shaft and long adapter, befitting these longer Jeeps. Attempted adaptability into short-wheel-base Jeeps is actually quite...

    Pictures - Starting my 5x8 Cargo Camper Conversion

    Finally got fully updated on this. Did you ever find out the total weight of the trailer once it was completed?

    Time to start a 'Riot! 2015 Jeep Patriot sport build.

    Picked up some used 245/65R17 Goodyear Wrangler All terrain Adventure tires for the jeep yesterday. Now the fun begins on trying to fit them under it. Should be doable as i have seen 30" tires fitted under the Patriots before. And i have seen stock Series II fwds clear 235/65r17s. So at worst i...

    2015 Jeep Patriot overlander build.

    I have seen a similar trick applied to the Trailblazer/Envoy platform when i still had my TB it is a pretty clean way of doing it. Was not sure if it could be done on the Patriot but now i know it can be. Sweet. Now i may pull a trick from the TB days and use a small ATV ramp as a rack with...

    2015 Jeep Patriot overlander build.

    Def interested in seeing this set up on your Jeep! Kinda curious about how you are dealing with the wiring for the light up there.

    Sounds good, i think he may even have the #s in his thread. The cover thing may be due to the year i have ran into this with other parts before as well as most part applications only go up to the 2014 model year it seems. I will look again and put in an older year on the search. Thanks for...

    Time to start a 'Riot! 2015 Jeep Patriot sport build.

    Any particular part number for the springs? Also what is different between them and what i have now? Just wondering as if i am at the point of switching both struts and springs i might as well add new strut mounts at the same time to put them in as complete assemblies with the RRO mounts in the...

    Thanks for the info! I am assuming that you ordered the covers for the Compass as it is the sister vehicle to the Patriot. I will def look more into them for sure. I do recall seeing some seat covers in a Land Rover thread that were of similar material and added MOLLE panels to the back of the...

    Time to start a 'Riot! 2015 Jeep Patriot sport build.

    I am def curious about some of the upgrades you made to yours. Specifically the seat covers, laptop holder and the Anker powerhouse. Stating with the powerhouse do you have it wired into the Patriot to keep it charged up when not in use? Also where did you get the seat covers? With that said...

    Time to start a 'Riot! 2015 Jeep Patriot sport build.

    Plan on it. Exploring some other lighting options along the way like the Morimoto XB universal LED fog lights. I need to look at how the stock fog mounts and try to determine if i can make them work. One idea i am kicking around already is a simple plate bolted behind the factory setup to mount...

    Project Nomad: 1986 GMC Jimmy Sierra Classic

    That is pretty cool indeed. One thing i keep kicking around with this is converting this one into a Half Cab especially if i get the '69 K5 i have a lead on. But one other likely outcome is keeping this one as is in terms of being a full cap like it is now. May seriously look at the idea of...
