    Roy, I reversed the eyes on my main leaf (you can do that yourself if you have good original main leafs). You will have to either notch the forward spring hanger or rotate it for clearance with the reversed eye. I rotated mine 90 degrees and moved it up as high as I could on the frame rail.

    I think the S10 rear would be too narrow, but it depends.
    What you want to use will depend on wheel size and rear suspension setup. I am running leaf springs on the outside of the frame like the original F1 design, so I am using a 1970-1981 camaro / firebird rear. Another rear which is the same width would be a 1968-72 chevelle rear. Original brackets have to be removed and new suspension brackets welded on for either one.
    If you are running a 4 link or super wide tires then you may want to mock up the tires and see what you need as far as width, wheel mounting surface to wheel mounting surface.

    Yeah, im just south of elk grove, galt area. My truck not quite there yet but ill try and update profile gallery when possible. Lots of little loose ends to tie up. Mostly just still in acquisition phase and fit check then rework the bed and body, then blast the frame. Then paint/reassembly.

    I just searched image for 1987 XJ6 and most came back with the same body style I have. After the series III xj6 came the XJ40, which is a similar body style and not what you want. The series III is what you want and I'm not sure when they changed. I know that XJS's were good up to about 1990. Take a look at my gallery, there's a picture of the correct type. If it doesn't look like that then it's probably not the correct one. If it's the correct one, it's a very easy swap for a F1. I did mine in a weekend. I'd be glad to give you advice on how to install it.

    Thanks but I actually need the "box" not the defroster vents. It looks like the PO smashed the lower part of the heater output "box" just in front of the shifter (on the floor). I'll post a pic when I get a chance. Thanks again...

    Thanks forgetting back to me Roy and you were right about ebay. Actually managed to grab a set of door panels on ebay in excellent condition for $30. Thankfully they were badly named
