    Hey, so I live way east up in Canada, in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. My current build is a 2005 sport I’m converting into a renegade and doing a 5 speed standard swap, good friend owned it before me and blew the auto trans in it, I was gonna just put another auto in it from one of my many parts libertys, so I ended up buying a 03 renegade auto fully loaded with sunroof and all, I’ve already swapped the entire interior over into the 05 and all the exterior panels because the 05 was rusty, also will be swapping the LSD from the renegade and cutting the roof and installing the sunroof.

    The 05 already has a brand new 3in Rough Country lift in it and instead of just swapping another auto back in I found a 5 speed 03 renegade forsale for $1000 CAD, I ended up buying it for $550 CAD and hVe been driving it, the transfer case just blew up before the new year but I checked it and the 05 has the same case so I can still save this and do the full 5 speed swap. I’m also going to be running 265/70/17 general grabber AT/2s with 2in wheel spacers, I’ll include some pics and maybe I’ll update this in he future

    * in the pics, the one with the grille lights is the 5 speed 03

    Welcome Jason all the way from Newfoundland. Good looking Jeep with a 5 speed nice swap! I would not be brave enough to cut the roof.
    In the future you may want to consider an OME Spring Lift/927/948, it will ride much better then.
