    If you do make sure to let us know how it turns out. It's not a hard job. I was able to put my leveling kit on my 2019 in about 2 hours. Would have been less but spent quite some time looking for the right tools. Be ready to take it to a dealer to get the alignment done. No shops in my area would try to do it due to it being so new.

    That’s the key right there, since it is soo new most shops won’t guarantee alignments around my way. It’s a shame that there’s no easy lifts for a Rebel as to me that is the vehicle most owners would want lifted. I mean it’s a sweet looking vehicle own it’s own, but lifted it becomes a monster . :)

    That's odd. An alignment is dont by wiggling around the control arms which and tightening it down when it meets spec. It's not rocket science

    Part of it is because so many parts of the truck are controlled by the computer. The reason I was given is that the computer needs to be told to learn the new steering angle. I had a shop able to do the alignment but could not work on the computer so it still pulled slightly to the right. Took it to the dealer and had them do it and then no more issues.

    That’s why I had the dealer do my install plus the alignment.

    I'm going to wait for a couple of months till more companies come out with lift kits for the '19 rebel. I want everything right. I also need to find a good shop around here for the install.

    Oh wow. Around how much is an alignment at the dealer? I'm going to have them do it.

    I did my install myself. I've put a few leveling kits on other trucks so I'm comfortable with it. It is a pretty straight forward process if you have an idea of what you're doing. Not for everybody though.

    It was right around $100. Actually cheaper than the other shop was trying to charge me surprisingly.
