There are probably more Renegades, Golden Eagles, etc. now than probably ever left the assembly line.
And that is only a problem if you have a bone-stock Jeep that is supposedly restored to factory spec.

If it's modded much at all, who cares if one of them is Renegade stickers?

I used to see the same thing with old Trans Ams. Everyone wanted to put either "SD 455" or "T/A 6.6" on the hood shakers.

Problem was, the SD 455 was only made for 2 years, and they only built about 1200 of them, and the T/A 6.6 was only for the Pontiac 400 engine (and only certain ones, depending on the year), not the Olds 403, which was an option and should say 6.6 Litre on the shaker.

I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

Regardless of what you decide to do to your CJ, I'm sure nobody will sue you as I'm pretty sure the statute of limitations ran out on our CJ's decades ago....

Please do not put zombie stickers on a CJ. That would make me cry.

Nothing wrong with zombie stickers if you love zombie movies, like I do.
I don't feel like working on anything, at this time.

Nah, no zombies....... But due to a great appreciation for our military, I've decided to do a sorta military tribute theme, just not a wild one. Just ordered the decal set today. Now I just need to get the dang process started.

if you want sell as a renegade, i do not see how anybody could prove you wrong. its just a decal
I'm in the same boat. Can't prove it is or isn't a renegade. I think the point is that you shouldn't sell it as a renegade unless you the seller can prove it is in fact a renegade. Not the other way around that "you can't prove it isn't". That's the honest way to do it but some go the opposite.

I've have one listed on ebay that states base/renegade because its a base or a renegade
