    Just the lift, the trim might be applicable on the front but not the rear.

    It's a great product! I have the 1.5 which doesn't space the subframe and drive line back down and the angle of the rear axels looks good to me plus it leaves the rear diff up in the air and I need that clearance for the rear differential, where I live it's rough and rocky.

    Hate to rehash the old thread, but what’re the part numbers for the aforementioned eibach springs? I’m really digging the thought of 14” of diff clearance

    Question for the guys running the AVID 1.5” $200 kit. Have you had any wear issues on drivetrain parts? CV Joints or other issues? Was thinking of just getting a bit bigger tire, but if the wear is minimal, may do this kit. Thanks.

    No issues at all, aligns in the green, just a little flat but you can get camber bolts if you feel the need to... I run mine pretty hard off road here in Southern Nevada, lots of road trips - I recommend it. You're getting a little lift and leaving that rear differential up in the air.

    I appreciate the quick reply, thank you. I like the looks of your rig. What basket is that and how long is it? I just got my Renegade last week, but the hunting trails I run can be a bit rough, so I’ve been putting together a wish list to give the wife. The DayStar winch mount/front bumper gaurd and AVID’s rear bumper with tire carrier are on the list as are BFG KO2 tires.

    I have a Yakima Mega Warrior with the extension on Timberline towers and Core bars, it's 72"L x 48"W. Yakima is worth every penny, particularly where you are... closed welds, powder coating, no metal on metal. Check out Valkyrie off-road, he has a Renegade and makes great stuff bolts right up. Check out the ladder. 20181110_155325.jpg

    That’s the exact setup in my wish list. Nice. I like how it fills the whole roof. I need the room as I will have several amateur radio antennas mounted plus misc gear that won’t fit inside. And fuel cans. I’ve noticed the tank is a bit small. But this is definitely more comfortable than the ATV and 11 year old truck it replaced. Thanks again for the info.

    Do you get any road noise / whistling with that rack? Your setup looks great! I love the Valkyrie ladder!

    Yeah, there's some noise above 65 or when it's windy... Without the extension it sits back further and eliminates most of the noise. It's not a whistle at all, more of a low drone that's easily blended out with the stereo. The Valkyrie ladder is bomber, makes loading and tying down the rack a breeze. 20180930_110135.jpg

    We are good. Was the most intense quake I’ve been in. Spent better part of 43 years here. The first one and several of the aftershocks were pretty severe. Besides one water leak, we rode it out without issue.

    Thanks for the info on the upgrades. I will most likely get the rack and ladder combo.

    I'm just getting into the keeping life and have never installed a lift kit before. So I dknt really know what I am doing and there wasnt any directions on how to install my avid 1.5in lift so I was wondering if someone could send me a pic of their directions or help me by explaining how to do it. Like I said I am fairly new and I am very excited to start moding my renegade!
