    If you're anything like us and plan on using your Jeep Renegade to head out into the wilderness and well into the night, a new Daystar 40" KC LED Light Bar System is an upgrade that I would highly recommend. The LED light bar comes with a combo beam pattern that provides both spot and spread reflectors to give you maximum lighting off road and the Daystar roof mount brackets can be installed in minutes and requires no drilling. That being said, the light bar itself will require you to figure out how to wire it up and being that we didn't want to run it down the windshield or drill a hole in the roof, we decided to get a little creative and this write-up will illustrate what we ultimately ended up doing.

    For those of you who've converted your Jeep Renegade halogen headlights to a set of LED bulb and are wanting to change out your sickly yellow-brown day time running lights or "DRL" to something a bit more white in color, this write-up will help you to do just that. Fortunately, changing out your factory DRL bulbs to a set of LED bulbs is not only cheap to do, it's also extremely easy ...

    This is a short teaser clip of our 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk being tested out on the Last Chance Canyon Jeep Trail soon after we installed a brand new 1.5" Daystar lift and a set of 225/75R16 Cooper Discoverer STT Pro tires. As you will see, we took on a tough rocky ledge about half way through the trail and even though we were hanging tires on more than one occasion, our little Renegade was still able to crawl its way up to the top and under its own power. I hope you enjoy the clip.

    Good or bad, we'd love to know what you think of this clip and of the Renegade.

    After installing a brand new 1.5" Daystar lift and 225/75R16 Cooper Discoverer STT Pro tires on our 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk, Cindy and I decided to head down to one of our favorite trails in Southern California and put it all to the test. In this short video clip, you'll get to see a small sampling from our test and it's of our Renegade climbing its way up and out of Last Chance Canyon on a steep hill climb that we refer to as, "Graduation Hill". We hope you enjoy.

    You know you've got a keeper when you ask your wife what she wants to do for her birthday and her response is to get in our Jeep and head out into the desert! On this particular year, Cindy wanted to head out to the Nightingale Mountains to explore some of the amazing rock formations, petroglyphs, colorful canyons, mine ruins and... other weird stuff you can sometimes find out in the middle of nowhere. That being said, here are some of the photos we took from our recent trip, I hope you enjoy them as much as we did taking them

    As much as Cindy and I love to play on the rocks, it has always been our love of the desert and our passion for exploring it that brought us into the world of Jeeps. It is for this reason that we always try to spend the first weekend of January taking friends out into the Mojave Desert and to show them some of the amazing places and things we’ve found over the years. On this particular trip, we took them out to an area known as Crucero and showed them the remains of an old F-4 Phantom jet crash, had them push their Jeeps as fast as they could across the Broadwell Dry Lake, invited them to make guesses as to what the Mojave Megaphone really is and had them scramble their way through the depths of Spooky Canyon.

    This short destination film is a project that Cindy and I started a while back but had to shelve due to other commitments. While there isn't much "wheeling" in it, we decided to dig it out of the archives and finish it because we felt that the places we visited, the things we saw and all the fun we had with good friends was worthy of sharing and something that a lot of you might still enjoy seeing. We hope you enjoy our presentation.

    While the factory headlights on a Jeep Renegade aren't terrible, they're far from being as clean and bright white as what you can get with a nice set of LED lights. Fortunately, the Renegade was designed with headlight housings that have removable bulbs and so upgrading them to LED is really pretty simple. The only thing you need is replace the H13 incandescent bulbs with a set of H13 LED bulbs or ones that at least come with adapters to make it work and you're good to go. After doing some research, I found that a company called OPT7 makes a kit that can be made to work on a Renegade with a little tweaking and this write-up will help ...
