Hi Fellas, new to the forum although I've been lurking and reading posts for awhile. Picked up a Rebel a couple of days ago and gotta say it is a sweet ride. Mine is the two tone granite/black crystal and I really like how the black Ram lettering looks when overlaid on that paint. It rides like a dream although that's compared to my former '04 Durango. Absolutely love the air suspension, definitely helps with the wife/kids and loading stuff, and I'm looking forward to getting up into the Rockies and seeing how it does up there, heading up to the Fairplay this weekend so I'll find out soon enough. Got my windows tinted today, forgot how much of a difference no tint makes so had to get that done ASAP, best $75 I've spend in awhile. Here's a few pix, enjoy and let me know if I can answer any questions for potential owners. Cheers!

Congrats on getting your new Rebel.

Have you already started thinking about what other modifications and accessories you want to do to it?
Also, what percent tint did you go with for the front and rear?

My daughter is 10, my son 13, if I lower the air suspension to 'entry/exit' its just like they are getting into my old Durango. If they were quite a bit younger I'd probably do some nerf bars or side steps.

Well, other than the window tint and tonneau cover I don't think I'm doing anything else, at least not for some time because, a) I spent all my money on it already, and b) it has pretty much everything I would have done anyway :)

Honestly I don't know what percent tint it has. The back windows were done at the factory so I told the tinting guy to just match it and he pretty much nailed it.

Looks great! i agree the ride comfort and the tint, had mine done 2 days after picking it up.
Agreed, the ride is awesome. It still amazes me how quiet it is inside the cab compared to my old ride. And the stereo sounds great.

I have the Alpine Upgrade, and I like it. It's loud and the Sub hits pretty hard. The surround sound & HD ratio options DID take some time getting use too. My previous Ford truck had the Sony Upgraded system w/o HD radio and at this point I would say the Sony system in my Ford was a little better.

So, I'm not complaining about the Alpine, it's just different.

I have decided that the Rebel probably needs a step on the sides to help some of my shorter friends and family get in and/or out.
After a few weeks of owning it I have to agree with you. They work well for the kids/wife and to be honest I like using them, too, even though I'm 6'2". And the satin black matches the black fender/bumper trim quite nicely.

It's especially useful when you forget to lower the Rebel and then try to get in with it fully raised. It looks great on your Ram!
Also good if the kids are trying to get in which I can imagine would be impossible for some without the step in place. Something i'd definitely do if I had kids.
