Liberty Renengade

I own a 2003 Liberty Renengade. I LOVE the jeep, but the only problem that I have found is the Renegade Roof Basket Carrier that comes on the Renengade is junk. It was a good effort, but all it does in hold in stuff and kill my paint job on my roof. Does anyone know of something like what Nissian has on their Xterra that acutally holds the gear above the roof so it doesn't ever touch my paint. I am looking for something that might be an attachment to the Jeep Renegade Roof Basket Carrier.

Thanks,

Ryan

Re: Liberty Renengade

Is their a floor to the basket? On some safari racks I have heard of people laying a thin piece of wood to keep things from hiting the paint.

No, their is not a floor to the basket. Wood might work. Maybe even some type of hard plastic.

Re: Liberty Renengade

u'd just need the floor for hauling stuff up there, I zip tie a piece of wood to the frames as a temporary floor for when u have things up there.

Re: Liberty Renengade

Hi. I also own an '03 Renegade and have also just discovered problems with my roof carrier. We noticed it was vibrating from 40mph and above. It has made a rivet into the paint all the way down to the primer. I called the service manager at our dealer and took it in today. Apparently, there is supposed to be a piece of foam cushion that was not put on ours...therefore, the source of the problem. This is the first he has seen but he said he'll be expecting more to come. This is under warranty so call your dealer and get it checked out! My dealership placed a piece of foam to keep it from doing more damage, ordered a replacement part for the roof carrier, ordered foam and will repaint the damaged parts.
The way I look at it is that this is a major investment I have made and she is my baby. The service manager is the key to getting things done. He doesn't think this is just a fluke. This is the first year for this roof carrier so there may be more problems.
Take care and good luck.
Nancy

Re: Liberty Renengade

Don't know if you are still dealing with this issue but I solved the whole deal on mine. It rubbed the paint up front. It creaked and popped while driving in the cold. I took the thing off and hung it on my garage wall. I drilled and permanently bolted its crossbars to the end attachments since it was only the tie down hook and the plastic basket that held it all together. I bought a yakima roof basket and mounted it on the crossbars. What is nice about it is the crossbars that come stock with the renegade basket sit lower than the aftermarket crossbars that are clear over top of the side rails. The basket sits lower and looks really good. There are some other really cool safari baskets out there that would look just as good or better but this yakima was a hook-up from a buddy. Anyway, if anyone needs a stock basket minus the hardware, it is still hanging on the wall taking up space.
