New Owner Question

After years of drooling over Jeeps, I finally found myself in a job that afforded me the opportunity to own one. It is a 2011 JKS. It is everything I hoped it would be, and am super happy with the purchase.

I have enjoyed my time reading the forums, but there is one thing I could not find. What on earth are these "Renegade" stickers on the hood? Google only returned Jeeps that were no where near the same as mine. I have been asked 2 times this week what the Renegade edition was.

If anyone could shed some light, I guess the previous owner could have put any sticker on there. The quality is very nice if they are aftermarket.

Welcome to the forum.

The only Renegade I am aware of (aside from the current compact Jeep ute) is the YJ version. It was produced from 1991-94. Someone correct me if I am wrong but I am not aware of any other production Wrangler Renegades.

You appear to have a very nicely equipped Sport JK with decals installed.

There used to be a "Renegade" model. Anyone can get stickers made and then afix them. Probably what happened

Thanks! That is what I was thinking, it just looked like a really well done job for aftermarket decals.

Nice Jeep (BTW) as for the decals, they are nicely done as well . The original Renegade stickers were much larger and kinda "ehhh" IMO.
Prior owner may have attached some meaning hidtorical or personal to the moniker "Renegade" who knows.

The original Renegade was 91-94. There's a 15 Renegade but it isn't a JK. The wheels on the OP's 11 almost look like the original Renegade alloy wheels. Maybe the original owner was going for a similar look from the original Renegade, except for the decals. The decals on the 11 I think look good.
