Looking good!

But as a war machine it could use a little more "armor" like...

Looks good!

Looks like you had the mods done at Rebel Off Road in Orange County. How were they to work with? I understand they're a King-focused shop so did you decide on Kings before you went to them?

Rebel Was awesome! Very helpful and their customer service is amazing. They do seem very king focused and thats a major part of the reason why I went there. That being said after the experience I had with Rebel I would recommend them for any build. I actually didn't even mention I wanted Kings at first because I wanted to get a feel for the shop and see how they approached me. They are super awesome dudes, If you felt RK coil overs where best for you I couldn't see them trying to convince you to go with King. Even if you wanted a 2.5 RK lift I couldn't see them trying to convince you with a different lift or set. They are customer focused and leave all the deciding to you on what parts or set up you want to run. They gave me great advice on what companies would best fit MY needs as far as all the extras. It leaves all the personalization to the customer. All their Jeeps are built differently and none of their jeeps are one company specific. They mix and match so I was able to walk around their jeeps to see what I liked or didn't like. Taylor is the guy I worked with. Great guy

Coilovers

Great build, I'm in the process of doing coilovers, so you went with the bolt on Rebel kit with 12 inch Kings? Any pics up close of the front/rear coils, or even better in action with some flexing going on? How's the ride with the coilovers. Also, have you flexed it out on an RTI ramp to see if the sway bars limit travel, just curious if I'm going to have to rig my electric sway bars to fully disconnect. Thanks man.

Here are some close ups for you. Flexing pics will come ASAP. I'm going wheeling Monday, nothing crazy so I'll see what I can find that will allow me to really flex. RTI ramp pics i'm waiting for to be sent (Not on my camera). Yes these are Rebels 12" kings. Honestly I love the ride but I'm still fine tuning them. With these coilovers I can adjust them to ride softer or stiffer which is awesome, My advice get rid of the electronic disconnect and go with either quick disconnects or antirock swaybar kit which than you won't need to disconnect at all. That's what I went with. From what i've been reading they are not to reliable and it's only a matter of time before the electronic disconnect fails. If you don't desire the quick disconnects or the antirock swaybar, Offroad Evolution has a manual sway bar disconnect where all you have to do is turn a dial to disconnect and turn in back to reconnect, and it can be done at any articulation which I thought was cool. But again for my needs I opted for the currie antirock swaybar.

Cool man, I'll stay posted. Looks great, I'm definitely leaning to the Rebel coil over setup.

Rebels customer service is what sold me to go with them above anything else.

@rebelman ahah thanks man! Rebel new I decided chose to name it "war Machine" but didn't tell me they were going to make that decal for my hood, they definitely nailed it. it's little things like that decal that shows just how much fun these guys have building jeeps.

Nice, but I know you can go alot further with that setup! How is the ride? Have you played much with the compression adjusters? I ordered the same setup and Antirocks and the PSC hydro assist last week, keep posted. Enjoy.

You've inspired my build! Did the AEV procal solve the TRMS light/ warning? I'd love to run the Hutchinsons!
