No doubt - And I would make sure the next potential owner is fully aware of that.

This guy has them as a single vinyl cutout instead of the OE white lettered graphic, might look good and not OE to confuse.

Most stock and renegades are identical with the exception of stickers, my jeep has all the identical features as a renegade, and I'm seriously considering slapping some on. Obviously I can't sell this as a renegade but I can sell it as a sweet looking addition

I have an 86 that has a renegade sticker on it from previous owner. I've done the research and do not think its actually a renegade. However it has so many take offs/add ons that its anyone guess now.

Personally if I did it myself i would just opt not to put the stickers on, and if I did I would make sure they are the correct stickers that would have come stock (mine are not)

I also agree that the line isn't crossed unless you label it as a renegade if its. It when selling. I made this mistake myself but corrected it once it was pointed out to me and I did the research. Still. It sure if it is or isn't but unless you're 100% sure I wouldn't advertise it as a renegade.

If you're going to add the stickers if select an original color as well

You could. And people do. It's not right but it happens and no one is the wiser. The title doesn't reveal it, at least mine never did and I bought it new.

By the time I get the paint on it and all dressed put like I want it, it may not need any tape. In all honesty I would probably be happiest with some sort of striping without labeling it as a Renegade. Every time I think I won't do any tape at all I get a flashback of Colt44's he did in white with the blue Renegade tape......... It's his fault I started thinking about this - But since I'm going red I think I can get by without........ Well, I just got an image of his in my head. Damn

Obviously I can't sell this as a renegade.

there is no way to tell if a jeep was a renegade or not. most time it was just a decal and a lot was added at the dealer, then there was some custom rims and added some additional trim pieces. i got one that totally plain now and it started as a decal renegade.

if you want sell as a renegade, i do not see how anybody could prove you wrong. its just a decal

So once you put on the decals, you have officially done the same thing Jeep did to make it a Renegade?

I dont see the problem..

Is a clone of a Mustang GT or a Malibu SS the real thing? Is it okay to sell them as such? Call it a "tribute" and be honest about it.

Mustang gt's arent made by putting on a decal at the dealership.

There is a difference between a factory made model, and a dealer installed decal.

Just get different stickers with what you want. Be outrageous so people are attracted to it.



People stop and talk to me all the time. On the highway, people give me thumbs up and take pics. Everyone loves different.

Mine was a stocker. I put in a tach and clock and some other stuff. I'm planning on doing a decal kit on mine.

Thanks a lot - that's like waving a glass of bourbon under an alcoholic's nose......

Actually, after giving the topic way more thought than should have been needed, I have decided upon a decal theme. It definately won't be confused with a factory CJ tape kit. Bad news is I would rather post pics than describe it, and I'm just gettin ready to swap everything from one frame to another, so it'll be a while. I've been sittin on the dang thing for mnths, and am just now getting to work on it. Guess I should start a disassembly / reassembly thread. Donor frame is just about ready to accept stuff........
