Diamond plate for your belly pan adds a fair amount of weight. Unless you're also a serious off roader - or even a sometime, casual off roader - then that's weight and strength you really don't need.

Don't do the air filter thing. Those make sense for racers who spend most of their time at high revs and need wide-open intakes with low restriction and have plenty of rebuild money, but that isn't where stock Jeeps live.

I am VERY curious to see how well this does as the Renegade, despite its Fiat genetics, is kind of appealing to me. Please make a garage page for your car so we can see what kind of results you get.

Lead or follow. Either is fine.
