ok im having a problem i thought maybe someone else might have had it somewhere along the line too. id like to put headers on the 289 in my 47 flattie, but the steering shaft is an inch maybe less away from the normal exhaust manifolds. i was lookin at different headers and they all looked too big. is there anyway to get em in there? is there a small header that doesn't stick out real far? i need something with pipes that come out and drop down real fast, and then they can wing out or whatever, its just the shaft is so close to the manifold right where it comes out of the block. thanks <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

AA makes a lot of fenderwell headers for flatfenders. I've got some on my 231 powered CJ. My opinion, they are too freakin loud and I'll be switching back to stock manifolds.

You and me both man... Im tired of my exhaust acting like some demented form of rocker protection too... although its been a while since I've hit it.. I just dont like it hanging out there. Now I just have to find manifolds...

Hey.

I will have pics up shortley... I have paid my 20 bones but Im not set up by lance yet.

I cant help you much, I ran fender exit headers..I then came off the top of the frame with some 1/2 inch plate and came off the bottom with some tube and it all welds into some 4 inch angle iron, that protects the header and muffler...one of my pics shows me jacking the jeep up using the slider..they are BEEF.

Got mine from hedman...pretty cheep really..i would guess cheaper then AA headers but I have a small block chevy so headers are easy to come by.

where is your steering shaft at? on my jeep its the biggest problem. I've got stock 5.0 headers in my garage but they won't even fit cuz of the shaft. i suppose i probably need new steering (don't even have power yet), just don't really know what'll work the best

My steering goes under the header tubes.

The first joint from the column to the intermediate shaft is about maxed out. The column is at a pretty steep angle, but that helps with leg room in the willys anyhow.

If you have any old magazines from petersons they did the steering on the "ultimate a1" the same way i did mine, If I recall they used headers from advanced adapters.

For my power steering I used all cj5 parts, just subframed the front plate that has the mounting brackets from a cj5 onto my frame...worked well.
