Yes, factory hardtop, 6 springs in rear on mine.
I do have the 4.2, but from information you provided Keith, with my stock 3.54 ratio, it came with the 4 cyl?
She does ride very nice, not bouncy, etc.
Though when I replace springs in the future, I will probably go 6 leaf front with the winch.
Maybe up the rear to 8 with the aftermarket bumper/tire carrier, about 60 lbs, spare, about 55 lbs, a tool box always carried, another 60-80 lbs.
