so far i got 5 bolts out and cleaned up the holes but we may be pulling the motor tonight to drill and re-tap the other 2 holes.

If any one out there is going to be racing i highly recommend jeep speed style 4.0 liter mounts as this has a been a problem plaguing us from the beginning, and make sure its part of your maintenance to check the bolts on a regular basis. The stock 4.0 only have 3 bolts per side.
what type of locking fasteners are you using?
