Just to update....

Went to go get an inspection today and exhaust FAIL.

Another crack in the manifold.



Wish I would have known about WF and the mighty JB before I bought that POS! Flex OME headers it is!!!!!!!!!

Jeepmanj20 I bought the Rugged Ridge stainless headers for my jeep. It has a better design than the OE one and aftermarket ones on ebay. They take 3 into 1 and then 2 into 1.

No, they are not... not in the least. Headers help when replacing an exhaust manifold but the TJ comes stock with exhaust headers.

iluvfire Cool, I have seen the flexpipe exhaust in a few catalogs. I am assuming the gains from any aftermarket header aren't worth the expense.

Jerry Bransford Avoid both the Borla and Banks headers, they both still have the same tendency to crack as the original TJ headers did before Jeep redesigned them. Go find some headers on eBay that have flexible steel bellows on both sides which look like tiny accordian joints.

Frankly, I'm amazed that neither Banks nor Borla have redesigned their headers to fix the crack problem. Jeep redesigned theirs in '99 and similar design headers have been for sale on eBay etc. for years now.

Headers for 99 TJ

I have the classic crack in my stock exhaust manifold on my 99 TJ 6 cyl. I am looking at the Borla or Banks headers and cat back. Anyone running with these? Any thoughts? Is it worth the $$?
