    Well here it is.
    [​IMG]
    I put the Eibach springs in the back to level it out. The back was riding lower with all the stuff I keep in the back. There is some very minor rubbing on the front wheels when I turn the wheel all the way to one side. I will probably wait until next spring to start upgrading the engine.

    That looks great! No spacers? Wheel info?

    The wheels are actually off my 2012 Ford Fusion. Dorman part number 939-140. They do not have the right bolt pattern for the Renegade. I used adapters like these to get them to fit.

    Hope it's not too late to ask, do the springs actually provide lift? Will the springs lift the TH at all?

    I took rough measurements with the stock springs. I could fit fewer fingers in the rear fender gap then the front. Now, with the rear lift springs, the gap is even. I'm not sure about the trail hawk suspension.

    Not exactly Renegade specific, but I got this mini cargo rack from quadratec.

    the parts came well packaged and the bolts were even paired up with their nuts and washers

    seems like a good fit

    The factory hitch receiver bezel is the perfect place to mount some little lights.

    Just some lights from walmart. They are actually quite bright.

    Mine is the sport model with the 1.4 Turbo. Here is a Thermal Blanket installed.

    No real noticeable difference from the drivers seat. But it looks cool.

    There is already a heat shield there from the factory that you have to remove to install the blanket.

    In other news, I just installed a Pyle PJEEPREN16 direct fit replacement head unit

    Went in extremely easy. The navigation works great and the big screen looks way better.

    Do you still have all your steering controls? As well as controlling you phone?

    Yes the steering wheel controls still work. The bluetooth does link to my phone but the microphone doesn't seem to work. I have to do some more troubleshooting.

    Does the stock USB and memory card location work as well? Do you have any pictures of it on, notably the navigation?

    The USB does not work and I did not have a stock memory card location. Here is a quick blurry pick of the map. I set the car icon to a jeep.

    The kit came with a usb adapter to hook up the stock lead which did not work. I have not tried to find another adapter.

    The dealer that put my kenwood in told me to come back to get an updated cable so it will work

    And here we have a ported throttle body and spacer.

    I have grandiose plans of adding water meth injection with that spacer.

    Here is a quick "proof of concept" on my off road gear.

    tire-rack.jpg

    Obviously, I need a better gas can, a way to mount the jack and a much more robust mount for the tire. The folding hitch receiver allows me to pivot the entire thing down so I can still open the rear hatch. I think this will make a great way to have all the gear ready to go by not permanently attached.
