I'm looing at buying a simular one it's a 79. Are the decals on the hood standard like the one's in the pic. I thought their was some stripes across the hood and rocker stripes.

That really looks virgin. Is it as good as it looks? :)

Here are the original Renegade repros for the years they were available...scroll down in the page where you need to view what was available...Jeep RENEGADE decals

Outlawmack 11-03-2012 10:30 PM

I don't know about the stripes mud. The jeep use to be brown, so maybe that's all the previous owner put back on

Div. it's in pretty good shape. Hard top has a piece missing on the passenger side between the door and window, rear hatch and a spot on the drivers door has a rust spot and the drivers floor pan is rusted. Other than that its in pretty good shape. Good platform to build on

Thanks for the stripe info Tarby

No problem...had a 1979 Renegade CJ5 for 3 months before I sold it back in 1994...Ugliest damn thing I ever had...never did take pics of it. It was Green with the orange, brown, yellow Renegade package...

I bought it from a Repo man I worked with at the time when I was in college. Had no 1st gear or reverse (t15 3 speed), but with the 304 in it, I started it out in 2nd, and then slammed her to 3rd. More rust holes in it than swiss cheese...I don't even miss it after all these!

Verry nice looking ride, I'm going to look at the one I found today. I'll throw up some pic's if I buy it.

nice find

Outlawmack 12-04-2012 06:39 AM

Thanks Jake. I think I like the cj better than the other 2. There's just something about it

Jeeper4life 12-05-2012 02:57 PM

That does look nice! Have you wheeled it yet?

Outlawmack 12-06-2012 08:33 AM

Not yet. I've been doing a few things to make it run better (motorcraft carb swap And HEI). The 4wd isn't working in high range. I guess there's a clip on the transfercase that's broke. I'm putting a twin stick on it, then ill hit the trails
