there is no rear bar

if its real close....these the SRT bar would come in contact with the cover. I know whenI had no K&N....the SRT bar rested right on the 4.7 intake resonator and actually pushed the plastic down and rubbed it

good point, cause even if the bar is close but not touching, the engine does move when you are driving and could touch the bar under acceleration etc.

Re: SRT engine brace/upper strut bar

@ Scott - did you notice a difference when you removed that 2nd air box on your 4.7 ( the one under the bar) ?

Re: SRT engine brace/upper strut bar

Delivered...So I did a test fit and it bolts right up. All I havve to do is drill a hole or make a bracket to place the bar that connects the fire wall to the sway brace. The holes and mounting is the same so basically its a direct plug an play. I am going to have to find time to install it because I have to remove the fuse box on one side and the coolant container on the other side because it a tight space. Stay toned...hopefully I will be able to install in sometime next week on my days off.
