You fear is probably very unjustified. Most people never drive their wranglers off road, much less their renegades.
Like with any vehicle, if it's modified and you don't know who did it and how the owner treated it, just run away form that vehicle.
Now that you have done that, you are probably more likely to leave a casino with more money than you went in with than find a renegade that has been off roaded.
But you can get under it and check. Is there dried mud in funny places. Is the under body or skid plates scratched up. Is the rear drive unit scratched/gouged. Is the exhaust flex pipe up front damaged. Is the exhaust pipe in the rear where it passes over suspension components squashed (this one isn't a standalone indicator, it can get squashed a little pretty easily from things like road debris, etc. But if it is pristine, it was probably never off roaded). Check the CV joint boots, are they beat up or damaged. Check the struts, are they leaking.
The junky plastic end links tend to get clunky regardless of off roading.
