Existing lift kits abroad for the Renegade are essentially spring/strut spacers. Neither are ideal since you're changing suspension geometry to a point that is beyond what the engineers have design the suspension and driveline angles to operate within.

Same goes for the dizzying array of available options for the Wrangler. All modifications have a tradeoff.

I would drive it and take it off-road a few times before you consider doing any type of lift. From what I have seen (videos) the Renegade appears quite capable in stock form, especially in Trailhawk trim.
Ditto. The wise approach. Extra ground clearance gives you freedom to be careless; not an automatic pass for go-anywhere-ness.

Being selective and thoughtful with your path selection (and tire choice) is more important than one extra inch of clearance that come at the price of accelerated wear on driveline components.
