I thought this one looked familiar.

Thats a good find, and hopefully a happy ending for a good looking Renegade! Keep us posted with pics and details if they let you get more pics or take the Jeep home!

It's been there for YEARS, which is a shame, because even now it really doesn't look that bad, at least from the road.
Looking forward to the pics!

I have seen a few done...they look pretty neat, especially when converted to 4wd.

I believe this one was an old DJ converted/restored...

Great thread, love the pictures. I'm sure each one has a story to tell.

That '7 looks a little too nice to be stuck in a junkyard.
