Very nice!
Is it just me or don't the axles move in a forward motion when compressing, which would push the coilover into the mount? Maybe I should think the uptravel is less than the ridiculous down travel that the new setup will have...which would explain the question i just asked.

Where did the coilover mounts come from? Is it a kit or something you did yourself? Rebel Offroad?

the way the mounts are, they can move any direction and they wont hit the mount. Just looks that way....this is tribe4x4s kit. awesome kit built better than any others out there. super strong and looks good
