Sir, with all due respect to your efforts, the proportions are all wrong in the front end, it is going to end up looking very different from what you have pictured it to be.

As some other individuals have also suggested on the forum, please do re-think this mod job in a better fashion.

How much does that front end weigh?

Is this vehicle going to be used for off roading?

Critical question yes.
With all that sheet metal how much is this contraption going to weigh ???
and is it offroad worthy with all that weight; bigger tyres and what abt the stock 4 wheel drive unit ??
If it comes out well; it should be one hell of an acheivement

As, I am seeing that some people have doubt about it design and weight. The project ideas photos are just a inspiration and rest from my mind. This vehicle is only just for city driving with show off. I have also changed the front grills as in the latest picture the empty space is for chromed mesh grill.

The execution is good, just that the proportions are a little goofed up on. Would suggest you to at least reduce the inclination of the bonnet, making it almost parallel to the ground. The way i see it now, i wouldnt be surprised if i see it the wacky mods thread. Also the headlamp shrouds seem to be facing skyward, dip them a bit and you'll be set. Dont take my comments personally, i've just expressed my opinion on the mods. BTW when will it be complete?

It is looking quite nice, will look amazing when done, the quality of the work is really good.
But just one suggestion, do change those rims and punctured tyres, the car wont look or run well with them

Renegade bonnet is almost parllel to the ground, inclination is way too less when compared to your design and front lip of the bumper is also way too low when compared to renegade. I guess you might have to redo these 2 things to make it look good IMO.

theagcustoms- didnt want to pass a comment till the project was over, but couldnt resist,sorry. hope it turns out good,bcos lots of money is involved and shouldnt go down the drain,right now it looks pathetic,if its going to turn out like how i think its going to be,even without a crane almost all bhpians are going to carry it to the weird and wacky thread.i want you to go through a fave thread of mine,maybe it might change your mind,[ Gypsy - Overhauled!!-rmonie].

As, I can see the project is controversial now i just want to say that everthing will be cleared when whole body work will be done. I want to clear that, I am not copying JEEP RENEGADE it is just a inspiration.

Yes brother looking for more labor to get it done as soon as possible. This type of work can only be done by a specialized person.
