    What's up guys? I have an 05 Renegade. It's not my daily driver and it's not going to be a super off road machine either. I have been enjoying it and fixing all the little things to get her running well. See you out there!

    Here's the only one I have right now. My lady is hanging off the back right after we got it. I bought it from a guy who towed it behind his RV, it has the two hook ups on the front I need to remove. It was sitting for about a year so I changed the oil and filter, air filter, flushed the coolant, changed the tranny fluid as well. I took the spark plugs out and found they were Champions, which seems to be the OEM spark plug? I could be wrong but they were toasted. I filled her with premium and will continue for the next couple of fill ups to help clean out the fuel system. I have an appointment with the Jeep dealer to take care of the most recent recall (lower rear control arms). Then the week after it's a 2.5" lift with some new tires. After that I am not sure what I will do but to fit the tires I am going to bend over the pinch weld and cut the front bumper a little. Thanks for the warm welcome, I have been reading different threads and the information is great, not a ton of bickering either haha.

    Take care!

    Is that pic after all the upgrades? Looks good. Did it run ok when you first bought it after it sat for a year?

    I haven’t done any updates to it yet except trim the air dam on the front. It ran a little rough I think because of the old gas. I filled it with 91 and changed the spark plugs, oil, radiator fluid, and transmission fluid. The only issue I have right now is the airbag light comes on. I’m working on that, going to try forum suggestions and hope it clears

    The OB reader I have hasn’t flagged any codes for it. I could take it to autozone or something and see if their reader is better, mine is just a cheaply made one from Walmart
