Wife and I negotiated hard cargo cover as part of our Rengade deal.
Now I find that the truck has no anchor points for the part.
Dealer has no idea. Jeep has no idea. Frustrating :mad:
Anyone know what the part number is for the eyelid anchor points?
I don't mind drilling the interior out just need the "pegs" to screw in.

Love the truck otherwise - black TH.

What a total joke! This is exactly why Jeep should have the tonneau covers in the cars, from the factory. Yet so far not one single Renegade in the USA has a tonneau cover, same thing with the missing My Sky, the missing 1.4 base engine, the missing 6 speed manual and the missing full size temporary spare. Why advertise such things as being optional when they really aren't?

Hope you can figure a way to properly install it.

My Trailhawk has embossed areas in the plastic in the area where the anchors would go. Maybe all it takes is to drill a hole in the plastic. I assume there are threaded nuts welded onto the body under the plastic for the anchors to screw in to.

Who will be the first to take apart the interior panels to find out.

Thanks for the suggestion. I don't think these will work for the cargo cover.
Anyone know if there is a parts database for MOPAR online?
I could really use an exploded view of the car and see if I can find a part number for the eyelids.


I'm sorry, but this is what came with the cargo nets.

Just found out that we need the following trim pieces retrofitted/installed to handle the trunk shelf/cover

68263115AA
5VY05LXHAA

Hope this helps anyone looking to solve the same problem
So how does it work? Just replace the factory interior trim pieces with these?

I really can't believe the dealers are still so clueless...

Not surprising. Most dealer staff are not even car guys to begin with. To most, it's just a sales job that is easy to get into... and solely based on commission, so they are only motivated by sales.

As for the parts guys, they are limited to what they can access on their Mopar catalogs/computers. And looking for parts on such systems can be confusing if you don't know exactly what they are called or the exact part numbers. Things are often categorized in the least logical way.

Those part numbers (68263115AA, 5VY05LXHAA) are not expensive enough to be the whole panel. I'd bet they are just the mounting studs that screw into the bodywork.

Mine parts are on order.
I think the more expensive one is tailgate trim that supports the cargo cover and the other part is the mounting studs.
I will take pictures after the install if all goes well

Trunk Cover Fail

So the parts ordered were not enough. Dealer said that both side panels of the truck needed replacement with
parts that support the trunk cover to the tune of $500/panel. We decided not give up on the idea due to the rising cost of the conversion.
Instead dealer offered us Thule Aeroblades in exchange for all our troubles and trunk cover parts.

So if you want the trunk cover it seems like you have to get it as a factory installed option.

That is just pathetic planning on the part of Jeep. It should not be so difficult and so expensive to add a $75.00 option after the purchase. Holy cow! You are just soooooo lucky you got such a great dealer that did such a nice thing for you. Kudos to that dealer and shame on Jeep.

That's just the thing. They only maintain just one set of side panels, ones that will not accommodate the cargo cover shelf. That's why they have not yet shipped one single Renegade to the USA with a cargo cover. They advertise it as being optional, just like the hitch, and a temporary spare, a manual transmission and My Sky but they really are not available for purchase. To me it's all just false advertising, plain and simple.

This is an european Jeep Renegade with tonneau cover


The only side cargo area side panels difference it is that there are two hooks instaed of the plastic plugs You should find in most U.S. models.



Than there are two strap that You connect on the liftgate side so it will lift the cover.

Are U.S. Reneagde's the side panels like the ones in the photo? If so wwhat is there under the round plastic plug?

The "plastic plugs" aren't really plugs, but what look like knock-outs or embossed areas. My guess is one could knock out or drill out these areas and install the cover pins IF there is a threaded "nut" welded to the inner fender.

The only way to tell will be for someone to remove a plastic side panel and look to see what's underneath. I'm betting on a threaded nut on the steelwork.

I couldn't take it any longer!

Okay, I removed the left side grill work and confirmed that there is nothing behind the panel to screw the cover anchor to. There is plenty of room on this side to see behind the panel. My subwoofer is in the way on the other side.

So, that leaves me to believe that the anchor studs for the cover only attach to the plastic interior panel. That seems reasonable since the cover is not heavy and likely has a weight limit warning sticker on it somewhere.

I would be interesting to see a picture of the studs themselves to see if they will work on a plastic panel (once a hole is drilled through the embossed area).

The part numbers 68263115AA & 5VY05LXHAA were posted above. Are these the actual panel anchor studs?
