I've been lurking around for a little while and decided it's time to introduce myself.

I bought my Renegade on March 12, saying goodbye to my Liberty of 9 years.


It was sad to say goodbye, but time to move on.

One reason I chose the Renegade was because I am unwilling to give up my obsession with manual transmissions. So I got a 2016 Latitude with the 1.4L Turbo with the 6 Speed gearbox. A month and a half in, I couldn't be happier with it.

So far I've built a custom platform that goes in the back so I can sleep there comfortably:

It folds up nicely for storage while driving:


I'd be happy to write up a tutorial with specs if there was interest in that.

I also bought the spare kit from the dealer and just yesterday swapped the OEM tires for some 215/70R16 Michelin Defender LTX M/S. Feels a lot more like my Liberty with the new tires.

I just got back from taking it up a sometimes sandy, sometimes rocky, sometimes rutted dirt road. I tested it out on some obstacles (cheered on by a wrangler driver, interestingly enough) and was plenty happy with the performance.



All in all, I gotta say: I am loving this Jeep.

Thanks to the community here for the help. I have learned a lot.

Love the bed idea.
I was just going to buy an airbed.
What length is that/you.
Do you black out the windows.? That's my next problem.
