A set of nice license plate frames. Tire inflation stem covers.
Other modifications or useful items?

Have flaps, rear on, but not fronts. Look good and keep crap off sides. Have door edge guards , hubby bought roll and cut to fit. Protect edge and look nice. Getting vent visors for windows next and a hitch and wiring.

Mud flaps are easier if you can get the jeep on a lift and remove the tires first. I've since got the windows tinted and the vent visors. My Renegade is black and with the batman badge comming in the mail, it will almost match the new 2016 special addition Jeep. ( My grandkids love it)
Got to put in a plug for AutoAnything. They are picking up a bit of Renegade stuff and will match any other price.

Husband put Mopar vent visors on mine, but noticed they whistle when window is down slightly. They fit and look great.

Husband put mine on in driveway and never removed any wheels or even jacked it up. Didn't take him long, maybe he knows a secret way.

Husband put door edge guards, vent shades and splash guards front and rear on mine. He also plans to add trailer hitch and wiring, bug shield on the hood and front and rear tube style bumper guards. He as also talked about some other parts but I don't remember what (he's all ways talking about adding something)

Careful with the rain visors. I had the inline installed. Had to have them removed. My window sensor wouldn't let the windows go all the way up.

Hello Everyone,

Before the Renegade went into the shop for the Passive Key error, I ordered a full set of the Weathertech Mud Flaps; these were for the front and rear.

True to the word they are no-drill. Biggest headache were the two front units. The lower bolt which takes the place of the plastic rivet was a bear to get the nut on as it has a narrow channel to where the bolt end will be located.

The rear ones took less time, about 15 minutes a piece as I wanted to make sure they were attached properly using the OEM screws which I think I will make an exchange for aftermarket screws that are longer.

So far the flaps are doing the job.

I put them on as I had replaced the OEM Continentals because they were rather wimpy looking and the ride was floaty. I don't like the floaty feel.

I replaced them with All-Weather Toyo Celcius tires, and they are much more solid looking and have proper ride handling. Having used these tires on another vehicle, I liked the ice/snow and rain traction they do give. Because of the amount of water that comes away from the Celcius tires, I had installed the flaps to keep the "rooster tail" effect from being so pronounced from the rear.
