We used an adapter that we researched and now sell. Part is not available online so you will have to call to order. Cost is $43.50.

I understand all the benefits of the reverse shackle kit but why the Scout II springs. Is it simply because there are more options for 2" wide springs? Also are the springs stock Scout II or lift? Are the rear springs Scout II and do they have more arch than the stock springs? I've always heard that Scout II springs were too stiff. Any thoughts on that?

This particular build has stock Scout II springs on it as we feel they are a good spring to swap in especially when performing the reverse shackle. They are longer than a factory Scout 80/800 front spring, wider and in my opinion a better riding spring(and in our facility plentiful). The rear springs were left stock but once we added in the rear fuel tank aftermarket lift springs were installed to help keep the vehicle level.

I like the patina on the dash. Was that a conscious decision or practical?

The owner liked the original patina of the dash so we left it as is.
