Curious to know why members chose the Rebel over the 'standard' 1500. Yes the Rebel is just awesome but what specifically made everyone say "I have to have the Rebel!"
The functional changes are Bilstein front and rear shocks; a different steering and stability-control calibration; a softer rear stabilizer bar; 33-inch (LT285/70R17E) Toyo Open Country A/T all-terrain tires; and a one-inch raised ride height, increasing the off-road approach, departure, and breakover angles. These are all changes made not only by owners, but also by dealers — which would normally void the warranty. With the Rebel, such “customizations” not only do not void the warranty, but also make service calls less likely than if done by owners or dealers (since the lift and larger tires both change the suspension geometry).
Hey quick question for you I just bought the Rebel love it! This is a full time 4 by 4 right?I had to have the Rebel because a close friend got a Raptor. He traded in his F150 and I traded my 1500. He likes the Rebel but says he prefers the Raptor. With the trucks side by side, it's clear that He chose poorly! Also consider that he payed almost $20,000.00 more!
Nope it's not full time 4x4Hey quick question for you I just bought the Rebel love it! This is a full time 4 by 4 right?
Nope it's not full time 4x4
Why I chose it:
I had a 2014 Ram Sport (first truck, first american, been an Accord guy forever 5 of them but the Ridgeline didint impress me). Many of my friends ride Wranglers. I could not justify getting a jeep. Great offroad vehicle but crappy everyday car. I commute 50+ miles daily so the ride and comfort was #1 for me. Loved the Sport but now I have the rebel. 4x4, clearance and a mean look.
Plus every 1500 I pass slows down to check me out, That won't last forever but it feels damn good.[/QUOTE
The reason Im asking is because I cant find the 4by4 controls on mine but it has the 4by4 decals been looking online and they all have the 4by4 controls under the shift wheel...
I had a 2012 Ram 1500 quad cab fully loaded. I was thinking of installing the 2" lift that Mopar offers and going with larger tires. I also had the normal hood and was considering the sports hood and having heated seats installed and calling it done. And considering I had the lifetime warranty, I really had to take a lot into consideration.Curious to know why members chose the Rebel over the 'standard' 1500.

Is she going to want a step of some sort, too? I think a number of us faced that eventually.I have to admit I was looking at a Longhorn and the wife saw a Rebel and liked it better. We drove it and were sold, it had everything we were looking for, and the air suspension was the frosting on the cake. We love the enter/exit setting.
