Right so what is it that makes this Jeep a Jeep? Well lets have a look at the suspension components and construction of the new BU Renegade..

  • All suspension brackets and cradles have been designed for high levels of stiffness
  • Front suspension is a MacPherson design that was engineered for exceptional rigidity
  • Front suspension is capable of 6.7 inches (170mm) of articulation.
  • Split shock absorber mounting transmits road vibrations to the structure through dual channels
  • The rear cradle is isolated to slash noise and vibration, also serves as the mounting point for Chapman setup lateral links and half shafts
  • High mounted struts, shocks and coil overs which allows for maximum spring rates.
  • Rear suspension has 8.1 inches (205mm) of articulation
  • First Jeep to make use of a Koni Frequency Selective Damping system in the front struts and rear shocks.

LOL.... I've got that in hard copy from the Ontario Auto Show sitting right next to me on my desk. Never thought of looking back inside it. Electronic version is better. I can make it bigger.
Thanks CalTom
that's what usually happens to any printed manual that i have, they always end up collecting dust and i just figure it out, lately i've found that i'm more likely to look at an electric form of a manual, brochure, etc
Hi Tom,

Thanks for the warm welcome! Always glad to be a part of any Jeep community! I need to hunt through my photos a bit more and see if I can find any of the front suspension... The pics I uploaded are all rear shots. I was looking last night and only found a shot of the front skid plate on the trailhawk... If I find any better ones I'll be sure to post them for you all.
Are you part of any other Jeep communities? Whether that be online or off.
