It is one of my favorite weeks of the whole year, SEMA week. The annual Specialty Equipment Market Association show kicks off tomorrow in Las Vegas. In December we usually do our 25 Days of SEMA special where we go over some of our favorite Jeep Builds of SEMA’s past (some of our favorites include Dune Warfare, Mopar Recon, and the MIAI Havoc). With the release of the 2015 Jeep Renegade this year it was assumed that Jeep would present at least one Renegade at this years show. The rumors are out as to what will be released tomorrow and it looks like they have created two Renegades for the show.
The first of the two is the Renegade Riptide.
Riptide was created with the sun and sand lover in mind. It takes a fun weekend approach to its accessories for those who spend their weekends looking for that ideal quiet surf spot.
The second is the Renegade Frostbite.
Mopar wanted to show the versatility of the Renegade so Frostbite was built with the snow lovers in mind. Built to accommodate a winter climate, it was made for those who spend their weekends on the slopes.
Both builds are very simple as far as what we are used to for a SEMA showing. They are basically just a new paint job with some minor appearance upgrades and roof rack. However, we love that Mopar kept it simple. It shows how easy it is to make your Jeep vehicle your own. We are used to seeing Wranlger builds that easily hit the $100k mark so seeing something that makes sense for every day adventures that is easy and affordable is a great change.
That being said we are excited to see all of the extravagant and over the top builds that SEMA brings so as the week progresses we will be sharing some of our favorite builds.
