First major post on here, so forgive me if something doesn't format right. Bought my Renegade last Wednesday. Being an ex-Wrangler-owner, the urge to upgrade and tamper is simply irresistible. Not sure what else I want to do just yet.

To do list :
1) LED DRL's, but I dread dealing with those dumb soft plastic screws to get into that little compartment again!
2) Small light bar on the front bumper somewhere
3) Tint front door windows
4) Any suggestions???

To start with, here are the lights I used...

Headlight - OPT7 LED H-13

Amber Fog Light - Optilux H71071132 XY Series H11
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002E2WMWG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Oddly enough, Amazon said "This does not fit your 2016 Jeep Renegade" for both items even though I was ordering the right size for both, so take that recommendation with a grain of salt..

Unfortunately, I didn't have any shots of the lights before installation since I did it in daylight.

For the headlights, I used the following tutorial to do the easy modification to the ring that allows them to be perfectly perpendicular. The same write up is here on this forum, but I find the one linked includes an additional necessary bit about how/where to drill the hole. I am not a toolsy guy, and this drilling/modification was quite easy for me.

The new amber fog lights really impressed me quite a bit. My worried about not going LED for these were quickly smashed!

Here are the installed photos...

Awesome write up. I just fell in love with those fog lights!! Ordering a set right now. Ive always used PIAA plasma ion yellows in the past but have been disappointed with the performance. Those look like the business! I still am up in the air about what brand led bulb I want to go with as there are so many different brands.
