the XJS suspension (the widest available) is 45mm narrower than the beddy useing 25mm reverse offset rims the mounting kit for the rear would not be very hard to do but the front end is a bit more complicated as the control arms cant towards the back the rack must be mounted on the rear of the crossmemberso linking it to the column becomes a challenge ( Ihave two bevel boxes in mine) also the mounting for the upper control arms has to be reversed otherwise you cant bolt the arms up or fit the shims for the alignment I am in the middle of mounting mine and YES I am taking lotsa photos    Cheers Neil

XJS series 3
they come out in two sizes, also an early and later model. they can be told apart from the discs as the early ones look like they have a metal rod welded around the disc. even the later model one has a issue with handbrake lever inserts, they should be replaced with the later model ratchet type ones for auto adjusting
There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can't. What you've got to do is turn around and say "watch me"

Steveo, they usually have tags on the diff head, not sure on id marks as such.

doing a search on google, i found a couple of links

http://www.ozrodders.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=413742&sid=0671ba36e90d74325c827e0182dc6547  (just look at the pictures on how it's mounted, the center can/should be rubber mounted to stop vibration and the traction bars are set up correctly, having them running straight and the rear tends to steer)

http://www.canoeyawl.com/SCHR/images-cobra/RE-complete.jpg   later model

http://www.cripple.tk/wp-content/gallery/jag-diff-fabricationinstall/img_8022.jpg  early model

sorry i couldnt find very good pictures, but if you look at the edge of the disc you'll see the early one is rounded, in person it looks like it has a rod between the plates

There's also a doco in the 'Technical Documentation' section in 'Downloads' that has information on setting up the Jag rear end.

Here are another couple of examples of Bedford mounted Jag rears The top one was taken at a Garden City Grovel in Christchurch around 1990 I think and the bottom one belonged to a member of our club. He ended up moving to Christchurch and that was the last we heard of him. CfJeff might have more info. I'm kicking myself now that I didn't take more photos while I had the chance.

If you look closely at the bottom picture you can see where the bottom arms were lengthened.

Here's a suggestion. Just for once why don't you try typing using proper English and grammar instead of raving on like a blithering imbecile!

And while we're about it stop polluting serious threads with your crap. Unless you have something relevant to add don't bother.
