    Ran those on my first 48, they worked well on at least 6 trips on Rubicon and 2 Sierra Trek's.

    That ebay ad only has part of the bracket. The other part that is harder to find is the aluminum casting that bolts to the engine and holds the 2 brackets shown in the ad.

    FYI you can find buick engine parts on car-part.com. Parts of my PS install came from 71 skylark with the 350.

    That’s it!
    I would watch your local Craigslist/ Facebook marketplace. Personally it’s more of a $100 to me.

    Thank you Ron! If I go with headers, would that make a difference?

    Also... the grill support rods aren't really necessary.
    If you were doing some serious wheeling, they could possibly keep the radiator from hitting the fan.....
    but if you have sufficient clearance it shouldn’t be an issue.
