What header

I was wondering what header would be best for my cherokee? I know that banks makes on but are there any that are different? How come there is no seach button in this form? Every other form I am in has one and saves a lot of stupid quetions like mine

You'll hear alot of people say that Banks is the best or Borla. From my personal experience I LOVED my PaceSetter headers. Never seen a 4.0L with any other headers than mine.

Besides Banks in quality, Borla, Gibson, and Doug Thorley are the best out there. I have a Banks that is Jet-Hot Ceramic Coated and couldnt be more happier

1) stock ones welded while on the engine might save you some bucks. $50

2) otherwise, do the ebay thing , should be ok with warranty. $100 or so.

3) if you have bucks and make baller-type money, spend some on banks, pacesetter, borla, heck, there all good. just pricey. about $500

i'm not sure about the other one's, but the pacesetter setup comes with a new down pipe as well that runs to the cat i think. I'm not sure how all the others bolt up-

Borla and Pacesetter are the only ones I am aware of that comes with a downpipe. The rest of them use your factory "dented" downpipe

I have had a stainless Gibson for about 5 or 6 years now and I love it. If I had to do it over again, I would probably get the Banks. I like their design better than the Gibson. Banks was still prototyping the 4.0l headers when I got mine.

The search button has gone away until after 4/15. It was causing server problems.
