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.
Apologies for the confusion! We used their control arms. ---will edit OP

Just curious, the rear axle looks like it needs to be pushed back further, is it set in that location for a reason?
It doesn't, it just looks that way in this photo due to the angle it was shot at.

Im curious as to what the total tab was to take this from stock to amazing.
About $25.5k.

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.
The rear lowers sit a few inches higher.

Full removal of inner fenders is suggested for the installation of our recon kit, they can be put back on and will work with some trimming.

Extra space is needed, this can be done with wheel spacers (not suggested) or new wheels (suggested).

We do not sell individual brackets.

Curious, I like this setup a lot. Which trails have you run in moab with this? And, have the stock fender flares held up after those trails? Thanks, Mike.

Well this particular jeep belongs to a customer of ours, but our JL has been through Hells Revenge, Poison Spider, Golden Spike, Green Day at Area BFE all using our Recon Coilover System. Also made it without any issues whatsoever through Gold Mountain up in Big Bear. The stock flares held up just fine, good enough to sell after we swapped them for our Nemesis Crawler Flares.

I wish somebody would post their RTI with a Mopar lift.. I will be amazed if it over a 1000.. Mt old 1991 K5 with 4" Skyjacker with 12" long shocks front a rear would do 1071.. I don't have access to one in Ventura county. Guess I could use a fork lift.
