recently saw some interior pictures of the renegade and found the below picture of the speaker grille. I think they went too far with making the whole grille in red, overkill! I would much rather have it with a slight bit of red accent to make it flow with the red of the red accents on the interior.

If you look at the designers video, they were looking for something different, refreshing and unique. Those grills look like they would be easy to remove and refinish to anything you want.

They simply want to make this pieces to resemble one of these clips for climbers. And I think is a nice touch, but agree with the need to have them in different colors.

I always liked how it looks, it looks even better when you see a full interior shot as you see how they used that same idea throughout the vehicle.

I like them. The question is will the finish be durable and will the panels not rattle. If any of the rings are verging on too much, it's be the shifter surround IMO.

I agree, it is a bit mch even though it is supposed to reseble those willys gas tanks like the tail lamps. I get they went for heritage and branding, but it just all feels so simulated. Perhaps that feeling will change with hands on experience...

The different colors can be changed to something more of one's liking. That is if the trim is easily removable by the owner. Remove them and use a rattle can to change the color. PlastiDip comes in several different colors as well as a clear. If you don't like the color you've applied, it'll peel off. My son used it on his car. One of the parts got scratched. He peeled it off and re-applied it. Still looks good and matches the other interior parts he changed. You can always go with black to (kind of) match the interior of the Renegade. For that matter, apply the clear, then apply a different color that is more to your liking. Then apply another coat of clear to protect it. The color that is more to your liking of course needs to be compatible with the clear PlastiDip. I think Krylon and/or Rustoleum make a similar product that can be used.

Perhaps it will.

It always does help to see stuff like this in person rather that to make a conclusion through pictures. I also do plan on making my final call on them in person.

If there's anything that's going to drive me nuts, its the "since 1941" embossed text around the stereo. I'm really hoping that doesn't make it to production.

I don't think that its the design its just the color. It looks better when it is in silver. I don't even really mind it in the red, it matches with the look they are going for in the cabin.
