Chris those are some great pics. Did you have to do anything but use longer bolts to install that rear mount in front of the retainer?

Hos, Ruben, or anyone else if your looking at that and drooling check out my ad in the classifieds....everything but the adapter

yeah that rear mount is basically just a mock up, it's made outta 3 1/6 plate and some 1 1/4 box i had layin around, i know exactly what i want and how to make it, just don't have the tool, i have a good guy at a local machine shop that could fab one for me, but at 50 an hour, i don't wanna own the worlds most expensive 2nd crossmember bracket, it's definitly recomended to run a second support for the second case, and yeah to aswer yer ? the bolts are a little longer than stock, all bolts on the truck are grade 8

Most guys are aspiring to ditch the leaves in favor of coils, why is it that you are talking about going the other way? Please share the wisdom for those of us that assume coils are better but haven't gone there yet. I.e. save us the effort if it's not in it for us.

Thanks!!

my scout as of right now is a buggy, I cannot drive it legally on the road. I miss having a trail rig. my coils and 3 link setup works great. but i like the simplicity of leafs
