    Can't find where connector goes on '96 Challenger. Please help!

    I feel dumb but I can't figure out where this connector is supposed to run to on my '96 Challenger. I don't see anywhere that it could potentially plug in under the steering wheel compartment with all of the lights, bilge, blower, and ignition switches. Any ideas would be appreciated!

    How well does '96 challenger tow skiers?

    Hi I'm thinking about buying a 1996 challenger (110hp i believe). I'm wondering if this boat has adequate power to tow skiers and wakeboarders. I've heard a few people mention that this boat is a little underpowered. Is this true? Thanks
