    How did that happen? Is it covered by the warranty?

    Mix of rock crawling and towing. I have put the renegade to the absolute limit and unless they start building stronger parts underneath this car i DO NOT recommend you try anything too difficult.

    Hey, just wondering what model you have? I know they vary, but not sure the parts you broke do from model to model. I know the Trailhawk obviously has an upgraded suspension & gearbox to rock crawling, & wasn't sure if that could play a part in what happened to yours. Sorry, that suck, & im sure not going to be covered unless your 3/36k manages to see it as a defective part.

    Ok, well I was hoping you weren't going to say that. Ha. That's what mine is too. Though I'm seriously looking at that 1.5 or 2" lift. I'm still hopeful that the aftermarket mod community will take off for the renegade, & then we can really get into beefing them up.

    What kind of towing where you doing? I hope the manual 4x4 doesn't have this problem

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune. But I am sure you have one helluva great Jeep story to tell from now on :)

    Wow! All of us that have been on trail have experienced something to this effect. Really hoping I don't do it to my new TH, but then again nothing ventured nothing gained (or in our case nothing broken).
