The kit came with brackets and I just used some strap to mount them further back in the opening

ill check the bushings tommorow, and ill also give her a good wash down. i did *find* a small mud hole on the way home, but nothing bad. not really and mud in/on the wheels, thanks for the help!

yes. almost all dunes require flags. just think of a motorcycle and a jeep coming up opposite sides of the same hill at a decent speed. flags help big time

Looked at it. Decided the duel whips need to be lower.

i stuck in two 12" (maybe 10") subs from my brothers old car behind my rear seats. i took everything else out for now. i'm surprised at how soundproof my xj is, the bass is real loud on the inside, but when i get out, i can't really hear it. i like it.

Is it considered "stuck" if you get yourself out?

If that is a 4 barrel 350 with non-vortec heads 225 hp is spot on.

the l98 corvette motor came with 230 factoy HP and 330 ft/lb of torque. it used tuned port injection as well. and im sure to get it to fit, some new headers were fit. i hardly think thats a waste at all. even assuming he did nothing else to get more power out of it.

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...
