Default The Transformation of Rebels Command Vehicle for SEMA 2017

If you've seen Bonds Jeep over the years you know he takes it out on the trails and puts it through the hardest obstacles he can find. As a result the poor girl is showing her age. Which is why after having the opportunity to display Bonds Jeep at this years SEMA Show in Alcon Brakes booth we decided it was the perfect time for a whole vehicle transformation. Almost everything on Command Vehicle will be upgraded.

So after almost 10 years of running some of the best brands in the off road market, Bond decided to give some love to some of the other great brands in the Jeep marketplace. Over the next few months Command Vehicle will go through a complete tear down. We're starting fresh. A whole new paint scheme, engine, suspension setup, armor, seats, lighting, tires, wheels, and axles will piece together for the rebirth and unveiling at this years SEMA Show. We invite you to follow along on both this thread as well as our social media outlets. We'll show off all the new parts and our reasoning behind choosing them. However, we're holding off on showing the finished Jeep till November (Like we did with Rebelzilla). Keep checking back for updates!

We took some photos of Command Vehicle just before we started our tear down process so that we could do some before and after shots. This will be the last time you see her like this.

1st Stage of our rebuild includes removing the old bumpers, sliders, lights, top, fenders and cleaning out the interior of the Jeep.









A little before and after action.

mhmm.... Maybe a LS3?! I may have cheated a bit.

Looking forward to following this thread! This was already a BA rig so I'm waiting to see how it gets better.

So.... Bond got an offer he couldn't refuse from his good friend George Kane. George wanted to swap Jeeps, so if you look real close you'll notice that Bonds Jeep isn't the same you've all seen over these years. The switch put us about a week behind but we've caught up pretty quickly. Today we're doing the Bruiser Conversions LS3 motor swap. You can check out our Instagram and Facebook for the Live install vids. We'll have some photos up here later today.

We have definitely been busy, hence the delay. Here are the final build photos of our Command Vehicle, as well as a post SEMA photoshoot.
