    Yeah I was wondering about that, after looking at the wife's Renegade. That strut is a problem.

    Any idea on how difficult the mod is to do this? Any pics?

    I may go the route Eddie did, & trim the pinch seams. The wife wants her Renegade set up just like Renny!

    Does that pic have those tires? They do not look that much larger to me.

    They come with 215's, so it's definitely bigger!

    Can we get more information on the trimming modification? 245/65R17 is the stock Cherokee Trailhawk wheel/tire size and a friend offered them to me as he upgraded his CTH. I've got a Sport 4x4 with 16s currently and know that they would rub like crazy without some modifications...
