Patriot at SEMA

Date 2006/11/1 8:56:53 | Topic: Patriot

Rounding out our SEMA coverage for the week, Chrysler Group also has a custom Jeep Patriot on display. Built by the Chrysler Tech Center Vehicle Build Shops, it looks disturbingly similar to the spy shots of the next-generation Liberty.

Trail-rated and designed to maximize the capability of the most off-road worthy vehicle in its class. Custom suspension lift raises the suspension 2.5 inches over stock-ride height and provides over 11 inches of ground clearance – to make way for the 31-inch BFG Mud Terrain tires on 16-inch Jeep Moab rims supplied by Prime Wheel. The front fascia is replaced by a custom steel bumper designed to protect the front end while allowing for as much tire exposure as possible. Custom roof rack ensures there’s plenty of storage for any occasion. Auxiliary lighting brightens any dark trails.
