Quinnzeeskimo With Jeeps its relatively easy to fix them if you have time and money and a welder. You can buy every panel you need and all of the internal doings for relatively cheep. Just remember its better to start with a good foundation and work up from there. Lite stated before you could end up spending ALOT of money on it.

The Renegades and Laredo's were originally an upgrade packages starting in the early 70's but later turned into just a bunch of dealer applied stickers in later years. Depending on the year, you should expect to see some if not all of the options used in the Renegades which would have included:
  • Dash Clock
  • Dash Tac
  • Dash instrument beauty cover
  • Ash tray/Lighter
  • Cabin Courtesy lights
  • Optional Tilt Driver Seat
  • Hood decal - varies by year
  • Earlier years had the 304 V8
  • H/D cooling option
  • Renegade Wheel Package (varies by year)
  • IIRC Renegades had Disc Brakes up front instead of drums but I may be wrong on that one.
There may be other items that are tell-tale indicators of a Renegade or Laredo (Laredo's had chrome grill, leather wrapped wheel and grab bar, dash pin-stripping, seat piping, and a few other odds and ends.) and not having the items above does not necessarily mean you DONT have a Renegade as it was a very loosely defined package in later years.

As far a I am aware, there are no VIN or Build Codes for the early CJs that specified it to be any particular package like they do with the newer Wranglers so it is a bit up in the air to really know for sure.

I have a Renegade but when I repainted it, went with different year's decal as I liked it better then my original year's decal and wasn't too concerned that it wasn't the correct one.

4Jeepn you could dump 5k into it or 20k depending how much you want to fix it up.

2004blacktj The owner is my boss and it just sits in the apple orchard right now. So I don't think he would charge me much if anything, I would basically be taking a piece of trash of his farm.
