Hello from Michigan's forgotten peninsula. I'm looking for a new 4WD to replace an 18 year old Chevy and am giving serious consideration to a Renegade. I did have my eye on a Wrangler Unlimited but my wife would prefer something more car-like. My investigation of the Renegade shows that it may have true off-road capability for me while meeting her needs as well. I'm not ready to buy yet and appreciate this forum as a way to get to know the good and the bad about the Renegade.

In the meantime I do have a Jeep to play with. I have a nicely restored 1952 Willys M38A1 that I cruise the back roads and trails with.
Good luck with your Renegades!

Welcome to the forums. What color are you planning on getting? and is that the 1952 Willy in your avatar. If so, awesome.

Thanks for making a guy feel welcome!

It's way too early to pick colors but at first glance I like the yellow, blue and anvil. There really aren't any bad ones.

Yes, the Avatar is a photo of my '52 Willys M38a1 - the last Jeep model Willys ever made for the military. It's sparse on creature comforts and not very fast but it is fun to tool around in. I like driving the back roads and trails with the top off and the windshield folded down. I belong to some clubs of Military Vehicle enthusiasts and we go on occasional convoys and trailrides. We also get a lot of requests to appear in parades or at museums and car shows. Who'd have ever thought?

Sorry - I'm just figuring this site out. Here is a better pix of the Willys. She's painted in 7th Div, 17th Infantry markings to honor a late friend of mine who saw a lot of combat in that outfit in Korea.

Nice Willy's Jeep! And welcome. The Trailhawk will fit the bill for some moderate off-road and car like driving for the Mrs.

Whoa is right. When the image opened up I was impressed how detailed and pristine it is. Nice job.
