Sounds like a good list. Nice to see people still modding their XKs. Let me know how the exhaust goes. I have a MagnaFlow muffler which sounds great but would like to do a full cat back exhaust in the near future.

So does it mean that the 5.7 has a different panel behind the rear tire than the 3.7&4.7? as the mud flaps that look very nice say they don't fit if it has a Hemi?

Swanny, I'm not really sure because I don't have a Hemi.

If I had to guess, I'd say maybe because the Hemi has a different exhaust/muffler/tailpipe?

Again, that's just a guess on my part.

There is a resonator right behind the passenger rear tire that must be the reason.

Update:

Well, the front tow hooks couldn't be installed because the Brush Guard is utilizing those mounting points - which is something I overlooked. I am thinking about just drilling some holes in the front lower part of the brush guard and mounting some big stainless steel shackles there to use as recovery points, instead of the tow hooks.

Other than that, the rest of the work is done.

I also had a small transmission fluid leak coming from the transmission pan that I had to get fixed, so while they were at it, I had them replace all 16 spark-plugs, so that's one less thing to worry about. I figure at 82,400 miles...it was probably about time, as I am fairly certain the plugs have never been touched prior to now.

Also, my custom Real Tree seat covers came in today, so I'll put them on tomorrow as well.....can't wait to see & hear it!!!

Picking it up in the morning and I will post plenty of pics.
