Why? why? why?

I feel like the 'red-headed step-child'. In the photo at the very top of this page, there are no YJ's represented. Are we just too square, or too cool?

Me too. My last jeep was a 1951 Willys military. (1973) I don't know much about the YJ that I just bought but I've learned a lot on this forum.

Welcome to the forum Wendyred91, we need more females! You have a Jeep Renegade, which is not very common. From Wikipedia:

From 1991 until 1994, Jeep produced an options package on the YJ Wrangler listed as the "Renegade Decor Group". Vehicles were shipped as optioned Wranglers to American Specialty Cars (ASC) in the Detroit area, where the Renegade Decor Package was installed, then shipped back to Jeep for delivery to dealers. Renegades all have a small sticker on the driver's side door, right above the latch denoting the visit to ASC. Initially, all Renegades were White, Black, or Red. In 1992, Blue was added, in 1993, Bronze. The Renegade Decor Group was a $4,266.00 option over a base Wrangler in 1991 and included special alloy wheels, exclusive body flares, along with many other features.
Contents of the Renegade Decor Package
4.0 Liter (242 CID) I-6 Engine
30x9.5R15 LT OWL Wrangler A/T Tires
Exclusive 5-hole aluminum wheels, 8 inches wide
Full size spare tire
Highback seats with Trailcloth Fabric
Off-road gas shock absorbers
Power steering
Fog lamps (integrated into the front fenders)
Leather-wrapped steering wheel
Renegade striping (door letters)
Floor carpeting (full width, and on insides of body tub)
Floor mats, front
Extra capacity fuel tank (20 US gal.)
Color keyed fender flares with integrated bodyside steps
Front and rear bumperettes (plastic)
Center console with cup holders
Courtesy and engine compartment lights
Interval wipers
Glove box lock
A hardtop was a $923.00 option and came with a mandatory rear window defroster at $164.00. Although soft-top models came standard with "half doors", full framed doors with glass windows were an option, and as on all 6-cylinder Wranglers, air-conditioning was also an option. Renegades typically had the tilt steering wheel ($130.00) and an AM/FM/cassette stereo radio ($264.00). A column shift automatic was also an available option, but it was not popular.

Yours looks like it has either been repainted or the decals have been removed. Can can Google it to see what the decals should look like, and you can buy replacements if you want them. Your wheels are called Gamblers, I just bought a set for my 90 YJ.

I was thinking that there should be a large decal on the hood, but that's for the CJ model Renegade, so you have all your decals. Click image for larger version

Wow, that is the definite description of a YJ mall crawler isn't it? Don't get me wrong, nice looking Jeep for its age, but I would hate to clean mud out of all the flares or worse bounce one of those fiberglass side panels off of a tree or rock. YIKES

I think it would look better lifted, but to each their own. They are definitely unique. I'm glad Wendy loves her Jeep and will preserve it's history.

As the OP, not to worry. It doesn't bother me if it doesn't bother anyone else. Good reading, as far as I'm concerned.
