Jeep Patriot Questions

  • Yes, the replacement cargo box mounting hardware kit you ordered, part # SR05493, is the correct kit for the Explorer Series cargo box. My contact at SportRack confirmed this also. The key to whether these will fit your Jeep Patriot crossbars is the crossbar width. The u-bolts included in this kit are 4-inches wide. As long as your crossbars are not wider than 4-inches you should have no issue fitting the hardware to them. It may be necessary, as you noted, to drill new...

  • The SportRack Mounting Hardware, part # SR05493, is designed for SportRack Aero Cargo Carriers. The U-bolts are designed for crossbars up to 4 inches in diameter, so the distance between the U-bolts is 4 inches. I have included a picture that shows the measurements. I do not carry the Karrite brand of cargo boxes, so you would have to determine if the mounting hardware would fit your roof top cargo carrier. You will need to measure on your Karrite Voyager to be able to...

  • According to the owners manual for the 2014 Jeep Patriot in the recreational towing section, you can only flat tow the vehicle if it has a manual transmission. If it is an automatic it cannot be towed with all 4 wheels on the ground. It can be towed on a tow dolly, such as # RM-2000-1, with the front axle on the dolly. This only works for front wheel drive models and would work with manual or automatics. And of course, the third option is to tow the vehicle on a trailer...

  • You can still use your 1-1/4 inch bike rack with a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. The first thing I would check is to see if there is an adapter sleeve or alternate shank that is designed specifically for your bike rack in order to use it in a 2 inch hitch. This would be the most ideal way to adapt the bike rack to fit the new hitch. If a specific adapter is not available, you can use a reducer sleeve to convert the 2 inch hitch to a 1-1/4 inch for times when you want to use...

  • I spoke with my contact at TrailerMate and they confirmed the Tow Bar Wiring Kit, part # TM781124 is a fit for your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. this eliminates a lot of labor when wiring your Jeep for flat towing. This custom fit system plugs into the existing wiring harness located behind the vehicle tail light assemblies. Then just hook up to your RV with the included 4-way connector. This system does require that your RV has a 4-way flat trailer connector. If you have a 7-pole...

  • If your 2012 Jeep Patriot has side-to-side crossbars that 3-1/4 inches wide or less, the Rola Roof Cargo Carrier # 59504 is a good fit. This cargo carrier is 52 inches long and the Rola Cargo Basket Extension # 59505 will add an additional 18-3/4 inches to that. I recommend purchasing the basket first to ensure a proper fit, then purchase the extension later if needed. Your side-to-side crossbars will need to be spaced out by 26-1/4 inches, 30 inches, 33-3/4 inches or 37-1/2...

  • There is a Curt hitch that is Class III that has been confirmed to fit your 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. Check out the # C13079. I checked with Curt and they list this as a fit for the 2015 Outlander Sports. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

  • For your 2016 Jeep Patriot manual transmission you will first need to start with a base plate kit. For that you would want the Roadmaster kit part # 521441-1 as it has been confirmed to fit your vehicle. Base plate kits are pretty easy for mechanics to install. Any qualified mechanic in your area with a good reputation would have no problem installing this. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking...

  • Both the Tow Ready Trailer Wiring Harness, # 118552, and the CURT T-Connector, # C56162, will install in the same locations on the 2009 Jeep Patriot. Both require a direct connection to the vehicle battery. This is to provide most of the power to the trailer lights and protect the vehicles sensitive wiring. The other connection points are located behind each of the tail lights. The connectors on the harnesses plug in line with the wiring on the vehicle. The Tow Ready harnesses...

  • The RockyMounts Aero Bar Roof Rack # RKY3052 and # RKY3002 is confirmed to fit your roof rack and will fit well on your vehicle's raised side rails. The aerodynamic shaped bars will provide a quieter ride by producing less wind noise and drag. These crossbars feature an upper channel that allows you to mount rooftop accessories either inside of the channel or around the crossbar. These crossbar feet can be locked to secure the rack to your vehicle by using the Lock Cores for...

  • Without running the hot wire up to the battery the trailer wiring part # C56162 will not function. It uses this connection as a way to power the trailer taillights so without it the trailer taillights would not function. Since it does not draw power from your vehicle taillights it actually protects the circuits of your vehicle. I attached a help article that has tips on running this circuit for you to check out as well.

  • The overall diameter of a 215/70R16 size tire is just under 28-inches (27.8 to be exact). For a tire of this size I suggest one of the black spare tire covers that are shown on the link provided for you. Classic Accessories # 052963753479 is a vinyl cover with an elastic back hem. Rampage # RA772901 is a fabric cover of material similar to a Jeep top that has an adjustment cord for a snug fit. Either of these will be a better fit for your 16-inch wheels than the item you referenced,...

  • On your 2011 Jeep Patriot Sport, there will be trimming required for installation of the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, item # 36423. I have posted a drawing of the area of the fascia that will have to be trimmed. The construction of the rear of the Compass does require minor trimming when installing this hitch also.

  • I checked the owner's manual for the 2016 Jeep Patriot and there is not all that much information on flat towing apart from an explanation of the models that can be flat towed. Since the vehicle has a feature that drains the battery while being flat towed I recommend supplying a trickle charge to the battery from the motor home. To do this I recommend using coiled umbilical kit # HM47054. One end plugs into a 7-Way on the RV and the other end plugs into the 6-Way included with...

  • With the 24x60 Railed Cargo Carrier, # 63153, installed in the trailer hitch, you will not be able to install anything else in the hitch and nothing can be installed in the tubing in the cargo carrier. What you could do is use the Curt Dual 2 Inch Receiver Tube Adapter, # D-192. However, the bikes will be hanging above the cargo carrier, limiting the amount of space on the carrier. Also this adapter/extension has a tongue weight rating of 350 pounds. This means that the cargo...

  • Rear fascia trimming is required according to the instructions, see link, for trailer hitch # 75712 for the 2013 Jeep Patriot. Not trimming the required area and flexing the fascia could result in deforming the fascia. I have not heard of anyone trying this so I cannot say if it would work or not. All of the hitches available for your vehicle do require fascia trimming for installation. If you decide to go ahead with the hitch and need to complete your towing set up you can...

  • A light kit could most likely be mounted to a 20x60 Folding Cargo Carrier # C18151. However, you would most likely have to do some fabricating to mount the lights as there is not a kit that will simply bolt up. I attached a link to a page that shows all of the different light kits available for the different cargo carriers. It would be up to you to determine which kit would be a good choice for you to install. If you wanted a cargo carrier that has a custom light kit available...
