Hey all, I just bought a jet set blue 2018 Trailhawk on Memorial day weekend. :ReneBlueWave:
Since I just made my first payment, I figured it was time to do some mods. ;)
I already added a roof rack and rails so far.

I want to design a front bumper or bumper guard for the Renegade. I'm starting this thread to put some ideas down and get some ideas from you guys.

Here's my requirements so far:
1. I don't want to change the body or lines of the car i.e. I'm leaving the bumper on and adding to the outside.
2. It needs to provide protection underneath for off roading
3. It can't hinder ground clearance - since it's new i wont be lifting this thing for awhile. I need all the ground clearance I can get
4. Provide some degree of front end protection
5. Not be overly bulky or heavy - I won't be adding a winch to this one

That's it for now..More to come later

AVID all ready has the best front bumpers out there.

how much does it weigh. I do like the avid bumper, but it kind of cries out for the rear one as well, and at that point how much weight have I slapped on the renegade?
It is about 70 lbs & the 9.5 winch is about 70 lbs.
The front end did not drop at all after install.

Do you have overheating issues with that Avid bumper? I've heard of others who have..not as much airflow as the stock bumper.
Nope not at all. In South Florida it has been in the high 90's & she has done mostly city driving lately. AVID gives you a new radiator support bracket that move the radiator so you get better air flow.
