Rebel Offroad Recon Kit install

Has anyone installed this kit before? Any tips/tricks? Is it really as easy as they make it seem?

I read over the instructions a couple of times, just trying to get actual feedback from users who did it themselves.

Thanks

I have seen this kit on a couple rigs, not impressed but it gives people that don't know anything about coil overs and want to run them a kit to run them. These coil over kits typically run either too little up travel or too much lift with the way they try and market a bolt on 12" travel kit. IF you don't have a local shop that can set up coil overs for you I would look into the accutune set up. It is just a better design and they will give you a more custom tune that is for your actual vehicle and not just a generic valving for a JKU. I know rebel touts their shocks are custom tuned but every jeep is different and you can't just do a one tune for all and make it work well for every jeep out there.

Some build info here:

Thanks for the info. I was looking at purchasing the kings directly from rebel, but now i'll take a look at accutune's offerings.
