1992 wrangler renegade

I have found a 1992 renegade, I do not know much about them except they seem to be the ugly duckling of the wranglers I don't mean to offend anyone. This jeep has shoe brakes on front and that seems odd also it has an auto transmission which I want. How ever the owner did not what kind. Can anyone help me out with some particulars of this style of jeep I was told that it has a slightly wider wheel base than than the other wranglers. Thanks for any help at all.

Its a just a 92 YJ with lots of fiber glass. Nothing more nothing less. However it should have disc brakes up front, if it does not.. walk away.. walk very fast. The wheel base is the same as a stock YJ.

I have a 91 Renegade. I like it. It's just a YJ with some upgrades and a fiberglass body kit. It has an upgraded (for the time) 6 cyl, 4.0L engine. 5 spd manual trans. Air conditioning. And I believe for some reason, there is a difference between the brakes in the front and the back (I'm not sure, but I seem to remember this dilemma when I got my brakes changed). Wheel base is the same. There are only a few changes to the Renegade because it was considered the "top-line beach cruiser" type Jeep at the time.


These are the only pics I have of mine on this computer

So much misinformation here. Let me clear up a few things for everyone:

The Wrangler Renegade was a limited production Jeep only made from 1991-1994. During those years, it was the most highly optioned Jeep made. Front disc brakes and the 4.0l injected motor was standard. As was the signature body kit which was added post factory by Auto Style Cars of Detroit along with full length pin-stripping and "RENEGADE" lettering on the doors.
The Renegades also received a label denoting their visit to Auto Style Cars which was attached to the door edge above the vin label.
The Renegade body kit is not made of fiberglass. It is made of Thermoplastic PolyOlefin (TPO) which is a semi flexible plastic similar to regular fender flares.
In the '90's several companies sold a fiberglass version of the body kit. This would make ordinary YJ's look like Renegades but true Renegades they still would not be.
A real Wrangler Renegade will have a numeral 5 or 6 in the 6th space of the vin#. No 5 or 6 then it's not a Renegade it's just a Wrangler with a Renegade body kit.
Other options available on the Renegade included Air conditioning, Automatic Transmission, premium Alloy wheels, and 4 speaker sound systems.
The Wrangler Renegade is a beach cruiser or an around town Jeep. It was never intended as a serious off road vehicle and the rarity of replacement body panels makes that fact even more evident today.
