What he is probably talking about is a body lift which can't be done on a Renegade because it is a unibody design. With a Wrangler the body sits on the frame so you can just add spacers to lift the body but with the Renegade there is no separation between the frame and the body. The only lift kit that I have seen is from G-Force (G-Force Lift Kit) and is only 1". They will be releasing a larger lift but it is not available yet. Being that the 2015 US release was so short it doesn't surprise me that aftermarket parts are hard to find but I'm hoping that things start to get better in the coming months. My initial wish list is probably pretty similar to yours; 2" lift, skid plates, larger tires, tow hooks. I don't plan on doing anything until spring '16 so I'm hoping that there is a lot more available once I am ready.
