I have a 08 Rallye 4x4, Was wondering if ne1 has ever done a body lift? How far can our steering shafts + tranny components stretch before having to extend them

Also whats the smallest Wheel size I can get? 16? I'd really like to get a smaller wheel and have a more meatier tire then my 18's

Rocky Road makes a 2.125" lift, that is about the max before seriously shortening the life of your cv axles and joints.

16" tires work just fine, any of the factory 16" rims that came on Dodge Caliber's or Patriot's works.

17" rims also work as well, I've ran 16 17 and 18" rims on my old patriot and my new compass.

If you don't want to worry about rubbing and want a "meaty" tire, 225/70/16 fit without issue, I've ran 225/75/16 but they did rub a bit.

If you stick with factory sizes that came with patriot's and compass' you will be fine.

Where are you located, would you be interested in selling your 18" rims?
