OK. Theirs been over a dozen catalytic converter thefts in my community over the last week. Thieves drive up and park next to a SUV and can cut out a cat in under 20 seconds.

Any way to add protection? Esp to a Renegade ? Am not sure what cats are there now.

:(

I wonder if the Trailhawk skid plates cover the cat?
If that cylindrical can is the cat, then no. And the cat will need airflow.

This is a pic of the Trailhawk and I dont believe the 2.4 has manifold cats. Though it does look like it may lend itself to bolt-up heavy duty screen.

And BTW it looks like the TH gets forged aluminum Lower Control Arms and not the double-wall steel LCAs of the 4x4. At least in this early pic.

Went looking for the video you got that shot from and could not find it but found this. Here is a shot, at 9 seconds in that shows the skid plate and boxed control arms:
