SuperSprings Coil SumoSprings Helper Springs Installation - 2013 Jeep Patriot

Hey, guys, today I'm going to show you how to install the coil Sumo Springs from Super Springs, Part No. CSS-1125. I have my 2013 Jeep Patriot here, and I have the spring. I did have to make a small cut to chop off the spring. This is the piece that I cut off, about 3, 3-1/2 inches. The manufacturer says that they don't want any overlap more than an inch, so they'd prefer about 1/2 inch to an inch of overlap, basically just meaning that the springs don't overlap more than like this. There is a top and bottom to this spring.

There's very little of the hitch that's actually going to be visible. All your main structure is tucked up here behind, bolts into the side of the frame rails. The instructions look a little more intimidating than it really is to get the hitch installed.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2014 Jeep Patriot

Today on our 2014 Jeep Patriot, we're going to be installing the Curt T Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with the four pole flat trailer connector, part number C56162. We'll begin by opening our rear hatch up and we're going to remove the two push pin connectors located here on the passenger side and in the same spot on the driver's side. A small screwdriver, if you have it a small pick is really all you need to just kind of pry the center of that fastener up and then we'll pull the main body of it out. We'll do it for both connection points on this side. Sometimes the centers will pop out. Not a big deal, you can just poke it right back in there. Now at this point, it's going to tell you to remove both rear lenses and unplug the connectors from the rear. We're going to do them one at a time.

You can see behind me I already have the rear half of the carrier installed on the rear bar just to help shorten up the video a bit. Then we'll show you how they install here on our front crossbar. One thing you want to make sure that you do is make sure that the block cores and the button are facing the same side of the vehicle so that way the hinges open up the same way so that you can get your stuff in. Also, we are using a Rhino Rack Roof Rack System today to install the factory rails just so you know what roof rack we have on. Now, we'll use the included tool to loosen up the bolts, the Allen bolts, here on both sides.



Thule Sprint Roof Bike Racks Review - 2013 Jeep Patriot

Today in the studio we have a 2013 Jeep Patriot. We're going to do a quick test fit of the Thule Sprint roof-mounted bike rack, part number TH528. Now we have our Rhino Rack roof rack system installed on the factory side rails of our Jeep. We'll begin our test fit simply by just placing the rack up onto the roof rack. First we need to take this rubber-coated steel strap to go around the underside of the bar and then we'll hook this strap in this slot here like so. Basically we're going to do the same exact thing for the rear clamp.

Now we have a Rhino Rack Roof Rack System installed on the factory rails of our Jeep. We'll just begin our test fit by placing the rack up onto the crossbars. Go ahead and jump up on here. Now you can see there is a T bolt here which only you do is lift up this nose here at the front and there is 3 settings, basically this allows you to determine the best fit for the thickness of your crossbars.



Swagman Fork Down Roof Bike Racks Review - 2013 Jeep Patriot

Today in the studio we have a 2013 Jeep Patriot. We're going to be doing a quick test fit of the Swagman Upright roof-mounted bike rack. This is part number S64710. We have a Rhino Rack roof rack up on our vehicle so we'll begin our test fit simply by just placing the rack up onto the crossbars.

RockyMounts TieRod Roof Bike Racks Review - 2013 Jeep Patriot

Today in the studio, we have a 2013 Jeep Patriot. We'll be doing a quick test fit of the RockyMounts TieRod. This is a roof mounted bike rack. The part number is RKY1014.

Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Cargo Carrier Review - 2013 Jeep Patriot

Today in the studio, we have a 2013 Jeep Patriot. We're going to do a quick test fit of the Yakima Load Warrior. This is a roof-mounted cargo basket, part number Y07070. Now as you can see, we already had the basket up onto our crossbars, which the roof rack system we have today is from Rhino-Rack, and what I went ahead and did is installed the back two clamps because it does take a little bit to install, not too much, but just a lot of turning of the knobs, so I just left these two uninstalled to give you a quick idea of how it goes on. You can see this T-bolt here on the other side, what you do is there's just a slot in this bracket that this T-bolt just goes down to, and then it'll twist like so, lock in place, and then you'll just tighten down on the nut. Like that and then that T bolt will twist and lock into place, and then we'll just tighten this down. Now, depending on your crossbar spread and what roof rack system that you have will depend on if this rack will actually work for you. Now the Jeep Patriot does have the arrow indicators from the manufacturer on the side rails, basically indicating where the recommended placement of your crossbars should be, and it looks like the rack is going to fit nicely for where the OEM marker indicators are, so it should be good, and I'll loosen this up a little bit and then basically I'm just going to repeat the same process that I did for the front clamp, just insert that T-bolt into that slot and then tighten her down. All right, and once everything is all tightened down, that will complete today's test fit of the Yakima Load Warrior Roof-Mounted Cargo Basket, part number Y07070 on our 2013 Jeep Patriot.

We'll bring the metal U bolt around the underside, fit it up through the head and then we'll secure it in place with the two wing nuts. We'll take our second U bolt, we're going to do the same thing, bring it around the underside, fit it up through and thread our wing nuts on. As you can see, I'm just threading these on loosely for now. I don't want to get them too tight in case I need to adjust the rack or something.

Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2015 Jeep Patriot

Today on our 2015 Jeep Patriot, we're going to be doing a test fit on the Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack system. For the foot packs themselves, we're using part number RRSX001 and for the factory fit style width bars we're going to use the RRVA118S-2. These are also available in black as part number RRVA118B-2. Now these are going to be the narrower of the bars that we can use, these are 44 inch. We can go up to the 49 inch or also the 54 inch with these, you can check those out on our website if you choose to go a little wider than what we have today. The longer ones, the ones that are listed, I think they're up to 60 inches, those are a little bit too big. They couldn't quite work for us. Now to begin our test fit, let me show you how the foot pack goes in, it's a real simple setup, we just pull the black cap out of the end here and you'll see there's two squares there and then a smaller kind of a rounded top, I think it's got a square at the bottom of it there.



Yakima Roof Rack Review - 2010 Jeep Patriot

We're using the 48" round bars - those are part number Y00408 - and the Yakima RailGrab foot pack system. Its part number is Y00138. Now the RailGrab system is designed with a nice rubber protective cover here that allows that to grip onto the rail as the angled bracket portion comes in and what they call RailGrab or grabs around the rail to secure it. This also has a nice scratch-resistant finish to it so it's not going to do any damage to those side rails. Now we've already got the rear bar installed on the vehicle so we'll begin our test fit by placing the front bar up here onto the front roof line of the vehicle. Now as we install these we want to find a fixed point to use for reference. In our case Jeep was nice enough to put some little marks and arrows all the way down the length of the side rails here.



Thule Roof Rack Review - 2010 Jeep Patriot

Today on our 2010 Jeep Patriot we're going to be test fitting the Thule Crossroads roof rack system. We're using the 50" square bars - that part number is THLB50 - and the Crossroads foot pack system. That part number is TH450. Now we've already installed the rear bar so we'll go ahead and show you how the installation on the front bar works. To start we just place the roof rack up here on the front roof line of our vehicle. Now we need to find a fixed point to use for a measurement point or a point to where we're going to set our foot pack. On the Jeep here we've got some small notches that are in the side of the side rails as well as some arrows.



Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Cargo Carrier Review - 2010 Jeep Patriot

Today on our 2010 Jeep Patriot we're going to be test fitting the Yakima LoadWarrior. This is a roof-mounted cargo basket. Its part number is Y07070.

The part number on it is TH626. The XXL boxes are a larger box, if you do have a friend or a partner handy there, it might be a good idea to have them help. If you don't, I recommend kind of spreading your hands out a little bit here to kind of evenly distribute the weight. That way you're not going to have big issues with it being front or back heavy. We've already got the Thule Rapids Crossroads Roof Rack System that we've installed on the Patriot, so we're just going to begin our test fit by placing the cargo box up onto our bars.
