A well-maintained early example of the Jeep Liberty Renegade featuring the very cool rooftop light bar. Prices on ebay suggest that a collectability factor accompanies this model.
Everything works. And both key fobs and owner's manual showing early service history are included.
This truck is fitted with an Australian ARB bull bar. It also has ARB/Old Man Emu shocks and springs providing a modest but useful 1+ 1/2 " lift. Mounted on the bull bar is a pair of PIAA driving lights.
It has the 5-spd manual transmission and 3.7L gasoline engine. The transmission is a Mopar (not aftermarket) reman that was installed Sept 2013 and came with a 100,000 mile warranty. Also new in Sept 2013: catalytic converter and transfer case shifter assembly. The clutch pack was replaced March 2014. The a/c compressor was replaced in August 2012, as were calipers, rotors, e-brake cable, exhaust system and outer tierod ends.
The color is Cactus Green pearlcoat. It has an EVIC info center, unusual in a Renegade, providing compass, outside temp, distance to empty, mileage to service, accumulated mileage, instant mileage, trip odometer, and more. The head unit is a JVC with a Sirius module and several months remaining on the subscription.
Factory equipment includes the Skid Plate Group, Trailer Tow Group with a 2" receiver, the Active Lifestyle Roof Rack upgrade, 160 amp alternator, tinted glass, power fold-away mirrors, power sunroof, power locks, power driver's seat, power windows, fog lamps, tubular side steps, cruise control, six speakers, tilt steering column and the all-important grocery bag hooks (plus a lot of other stuff).
I have the service log showing that the original owner had the oil changed every 3,000 miles. I change the oil myself and have used Pennzoil Ultra 100% synthetic motor oil. Despite the 220,000 miles on the odo, the engine does not use more than a quart of oil in 1,500 miles, and in fact ran for 3,000 miles last winter without consuming any oil. A typical tank of fuel will average 18-20mpg. A high percentage of the mileage is of the over-the-road variety; my wife and I have driven it on National Parks vacations from Western NY to Oregon and the State of Washington, to California, to Maine, and to Georgia several times.
I had the undercarriage coated by Ziebart in November, 2012. There is a modest amount of rust bubbling along the bottom edge of the passenger doors and rocker panel, and on the inside of the rear door. The sale price includes clean right-side doors, rear door and rear glass I brought back from Atlanta, which are ready to paint and hang. A pair of brand-new struts for the rear glass is also included.
