    More progress! We've got the Genright Off Road body mounted tire carrier on, as well as the Poison Spyder front and rear bumpers. Working on getting the back-up cam relocated and the 3rd brake light wired.

    Great! It's moderately stiff, yet absorbs speed bumps like nothing. Slight body roll, but the rebound from a roll is quick with comfortable on road manners; you can still hug the turns at speed. Can go from street to dirt with a couple clicks on the reservoir adjusters. Feel free to come by the shop and take ours for a spin! Just let us know ahead of time so we can make sure she's local and good to go!

    Dear Rebel Offroad,
    First Off Happy Holidays to you All!
    I have a few questions:
    - Does the rear coilover bracket make the shock sit higher (if so, how much) or only displaces the mounting point outward and rearward allowing there to be a bigger distance between that point and the axle?
    - Is full removal of the inner fenders necessary or do you have replacement parts?
    - Are aftermarket wheels necessary for more back spacing?
    - Can the bracket parts be purchased individually if someone would like them for a custom project? Like in making advantage of the higher anchoring points for the coilover, but installing ORI suspension struts which could make you run at OEM height or lower onroad or lifted when going Offroad? This combined with a smaller set of tires for on road and a bigger set for off road. These struts are easily height adjustable.

    Just curious, the rear axle looks like it needs to be pushed back further, is it set in that location for a reason?

    I don't understand this.

    SUSPENSION:
    REBEL OFF ROAD -- RECON COILOVER SYSTEM FOR JLU
    -(4) 2.5 KING COILOVERS
    -(4) 2.0 KING HYDRAULIC BUMPSTOPS

    ROCK KRAWLER SUSPENSIONS -- 3.5" ADVENTURE SERIES SYSTEM

    I thought your Recon coilover system was the entire thing, why add the RK system as well.
