Hello Folks,


A quick introduction (my English is not good)


I live near Paris and I'm (of course) interested in buying a Renegade.
Your board seems to be very active that's why I registered!


See Ya! :D

Welcome! Your English is fine (my French is much worse).

I too want to get a Renegade. Hopefully, we will start seeing them in the U.S.A. within a month.

Yep! This dealer is close to my home!

Here in France, the issue is that there is few Jeep dealers : not easy if there is something to fix...

Hi gadgio,

When you go in to see INDIANCARS would you mind being our forum reporter and working in a few questions about the lift they did to their Excape model (which started life an "Opening Edition" model).

1) Did they do the lift with just standard factory Trailhawk parts or was it something custom they designed that will be available as an option on other models they sell?

2) Is the wheel offset ET40, like the factory wheels or different, if different how will this affect the factory warranty on the drivetrain, like wheel bearings?

3) Does the 9 speed automatic transmission or speedometer require recalibration to accommodate the larger tires and wheels?

Thanks for your contributions to the forum!

Hello
I'll try to get those information but I do not promise.

Regarding your 2 last points I think you're right, bearings and other drivetrain parts doesn't like such big wheel modification and of course if the wheel diameter is modified more than the tolerance, speedo will not be reliable (it's not easy to modify speedo calibration)

Bye

Cal,
they started from an Opening Edition, so only manual gear on this version, this means no 4wd LOW and no HDC.

Same thing happened to me, Fiat dealership looked like a ghost town. Not one customer, no sales people and no customers. This was a dealer in Virginia. Went next door to the Jeep dealer and there were a lot of people there...there about 10 minutes. Walked back to the Fiat dealer and still empty. I bet Fiat will be gone within 2 years....
