Looks good other than the body lift.

Body lifts that size are dangerous

The beauty of your jeep is now you have the canvas. Paint your picture. It looks like its in good shape. I would start with lowering the body lift and adding a suspension lift. Those Renegade packages of the 90's still look very 90's. Other than that your 91 is in way better shape than my rusty 94 so all I can say is welcome to the club and have fun with it.

Nothing wrong with keeping the retro look, however, especially when it's in good shape.

If that is in fact a 4" body lift. Thats the highest I have ever seen one.

If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.
If it's supposed to move and doesn't use WD40

Like said before, you have a very nice canvas to work with. Some don't like the look of the Renegade package, but to each his own. Have fun, get it dirty and make it yours!

I didnt even know they made 4" body lifts.... 3" is the highest I have seen/heard of on a jeep but those look like crap and are not the safest either from what I hear....

Yes that's a nice renegade. I hope you keep it that way too. I've seen a few on the interweb that's lifted and even with the body cladding they look bad to the bone. Yep deduce the Bl to a 1" and go all suspension. Not a fan of Bl, but a 1" Bl would be alot better looking and safer that a 3-4" Bl that could possibly breaking body bolts etc.

That's some serious body lift, looks good with the softtopper, I loved my renegade mine had a 4" lift and 33s.

Two things, I would do to it is replaced the bumpers. For the front I would go with a Metal Cloak modular bumper. The rear needs a Poison Spyder Rock Brawler bumper with shackle tabs. The second thing I would do is give it a suspension lift. Remove those hockey pucks! As for the body, it looks great. Why change it? At least one of its previous owners removed the original plastic bumpers it had. Almost everyone I knew that had one of these wanted to replace those cheap bumpers with something more solid.
