I've been noticing a lot of little differences between our 2019 and pretty much all of the literature and parts out there for these cars, I'm not even sure if stupid things like cargo liners are the same so I'm holding off on buying pretty much everything until more research, I imagine the OEM-knockoff mudflaps would work though.
Matching the interior vent/console/speaker rings is sweet, I like the black rails since they tone down the bling a bit, and I'm totally obsessed with the wheels. My only complaint as far as trim is that it looks like the rearview mirrors were supposed to be color-matched to the grill, wing grills, and taillight inserts but aren't. I'll probably color-match those eventually, isn't that weird that they're like half-done? Otherwise you can tell FCA put a lot of thought into this vehicle and I really like the finish and detailing, the JP and he Sasquatch are hilarious. Once I get a few hours this week I'm going to give the whole thing a once-over and start to figure some stuff out.
Couple questions, I probably missed these going over the stickys:
1 - is there a source for factory service manuals and other nitty-gritty info for our cars? Wondering about Firefly tuning, if any tunes affect the trans/4WD operation, etc., but I also know the engine is new and there seems to be very little info right now
2 - what's the best place to get info about our CAN-Bus systems, software vs. hardware, and other things that might help with figuring out, say, if a Trailhawk 4WD switch can be installed and coded to work in any 4x4 Renegade?
3 - are there 2-3 things that any new Renegade owner really should do to balance out, improve, or finish the car so its like it "should have been" when new? Like, a trans cooler for instance?
