Can you guys help me remove the doubts I'm having about recommending adapter specs for a buddy's 65?

My understanding is that 01-04 (SN95) Bullitt wheels require a 1 inch adapter up front, and a half inch spacer in the rear.

That said, the powers that be at CJ ( :shrug: ) are offering a kit that specifies 1.5 inch adapters up front. I think they're wrong, but I want to check in with people that are smarter than me before making recommendations.

My suggestion is to verify the wheels. Those years should have 30mm offset. Some of the other years look almost identical but have a variety of offsets.
