Jeep Patriot Questions

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 Draw-Tite trailer hitch, # 75712, fits all styles of the 2012 Jeep Patriot including Latitude models.

For trailer wiring, use # 118552. I have included some links explaining...

  • 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...

  • The Roadmaster EZ2 Base Plate Kit, # 521441-1, base plates will fit the 2012 Jeep Patriot with fog lights, but they must have a manual transmission and no front tow hooks. The fog lights do not interfere with the installation of the Roadmaster base plates. I have attached a photo showing the base plates installed on a Jeep Patriot with fog lights. If your Jeep has an automatic transmission, then it cannot be flat towed. If you do have a manual transmission, then you may be...

  • Sorry about that, I'll be happy to help! When connecting the adapter, (4 Pole to 7 Pole Vehicle End Trailer Connector), the white wire is your ground wire, the black is the hot wire to the 12V, the blue wire is to the electric brakes, and the yellow wire is for reverse. The 4 pole just plugs into the existing 4 pole.

  • The Reese Weight Distribution System, # RP66020, that you referenced has a tongue weight range of 200 lbs to 600 lbs. As long as the tongue weight of your towing setup falls within that range, this system will work well for you. The tongue weight of your towing setup will include the loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer plus the weight of any cargo in your 2008 Nissan Pathfinder loaded behind the rear axle. This system does not require any drilling to install...

  • The Rage PowerSport Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier, item # AMC400, is designed to safely carry 400 pounds of weight. The vehicle weight capacity is usually listed in the owner manual or can be obtained from the dealer or manufacturer, and you will need to check the tongue weight capacity of the hitch on your Patriot. As long as the vehicle and trailer hitch tongue weight capacity is 500 pounds or more, and it is used under normal conditions, you will not have a problem using the...

  • For your tire size of 215/60/17 the best priced set of snow chains is the Thule part # TH2004705235. These are very easy to install and won't wear out after a couple of uses like the cheaper chains will. If you plan to use the chains on a regular basis you will want something easy to install and durable that will provide traction like these chains. These chains are S-class compatible so they are considered low clearance. You will need to check you owners manual to determine...

  • 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.

  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75712 fits all models of the 2014 Jeep Patriot. Installation will be similar to the vehicle I have linked showing installation on a 2011 model.

The Draw-Tite hitch has an estimated install time of 30 minutes whereas the Curt hitches are estimated at 40 minutes. Not a huge difference but every little bit counts. If you plan...
