Cracked exhaust manifold

Yes, I knew it would happen, cracked exhaust manifold on my 98 TJ.

Can Anyone recommend a local shop to fix?

My brother's 97 had the same problem. Rather than have a shop weld the cast manifold, he bought a Banks header and spent half a saturday installing it.

buy the parts online and DIY. I did it and i'm not all that great with tools; Took me a bit becauase of some other issues but worked out well and turned out to be a great learning experience. I called a local shop and they wanted to charge me upwards of $500. In the end all I needed was to replace the bolts, the manifold itself was fine. Total cost was less than $50.
