That link you posted with the intake is not something I would want to install with the headers. On the same link, you can see the header is ideal for later model intake manifolds as the thickness of the flange would match 1981, I'm guessing here, and later exhaust manifolds. I can't think of any conceivable way that you could successfully mount that type of intake manifold that is designed to be used strictly with the OEM exhaust manifold that is was paired with. Exhaust and vacuum leaks would plague you to no end.
Stacking washer is also not a good way to attach manifolds and would steer away from any suggestions to do so. If you can't find the OEM type "bell" shaped washers, you can purchase what I bought from McMaster-Carr in thick stainless steel washers but both the intake and exhaust manifold mounting surface must match closely in order to use. The thick washers will not bend or distort nor will they corrode since they are stainless. The McMaster-Carr part number is: 98125A031
and they can be found here: http://www.mcmaster.com/#98125a031/=4wl7ft
. They are called Fixuring Washers and I use them on my setup.
As far as getting a later type intake manifold, the usual spots should yield something. Craigslist, e-Bay, classifieds here and also at JeepsUnlimited.com
