    Took it upon myself to contact them, as they are running a setup like I had never seen before! AVID Essentials seems to be a pretty recently created Texas based company that is coming out with all kinds of new hardware for the Jeep Renegade. Most of their product seem to be designed with compatibility in mind and will work with any model Renegade. However the exception I have found to that seems to be the front bumpers interference with the 1.4 Turbo's inter-cooler. I've seen a good deal of fellow Instagrammers installing their snorkel kits already. If anyone else has had interaction with this company, especially purchasing their products, please drop a thread with your personal experiences during your unboxing and install!

    As a bonus I've attached images of my mostly stock Limited vs their lifted Latitude!

    Hi, I'm a fellow renegade owner up in PA. I am very interested to know what size tires your running, what you did to get the to fit, and I presume you are using spacers as well? I'd also just like to express my excitement about your offerings on this website, I will definitely be buying your front and back bumpers once I get my spring lift. thanks ahead of time for the info!

    Hello Webspells,

    On our promo images the demo has 32/33" tires and our production 1.5" lift installed. Some trimming and bending the pinch weld was necessary and the wheel well liner has not been reinstalled for the promo images.

    On the production versions, the wheel well liner is meant to be reinstalled after trimming near the front.

    Installation is pretty straightforward and instructions should be available soon in downloadable PDF format.

    We've got some more exciting stuff currently being tested so stay tuned for more info coming up.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions and sorry about the delay in responding,

    Thank you,

    Andrew @ AVID

    I've got a '17 Trailhawk. My intention is to slowly make it my "end of the world" daily driver. As of today, 02/20/2018, it appears Avid is sold out of everything. I love the setup of their Promo vehicle and would love to do something similar.

    Unfortunately the rolling IPad of a Jeep BU make for a horrible choice for a so call "end of the world" go-car, Too much electronics... But its ok for a SSOHTF (S**t sort of hits the fan) (not a full out SHTF). Anything close to and EMP event and the Toaster is toast. lol

    $199 for the AVID 1.5 liftkit is not bad!

    How many cars built after, say 1990, wouldn't be bricked by an EMP? Assuming of course someone building an "end of the world" car wouldn't build a Faraday Cage into there garage.

    For any sort of SHTF or EMP type event you ideally want mechanical diesel powered vehicles. No electronics aside from a battery and starter needed and you can essentially make batches of acceptable fuel in a pinch.
