REBEL OFF ROAD 2018 JLU Build Thread

We've got in the 2018 JLU and are working hard to bring our 2.5 12 front and 2.5 14 rear Recon Coilover Kit to the JL market. We're currently working out valving parameters to account for the lighter weight of the JL.




Pallet of parts, so it begins..




Drilling out and bolting up rear lower shock mounts.




Ready to receive King Coilovers.




Front end lowers all bolted up, grade 8 hardware, because stronger is better.



Check back soon for another update!
