I installed an aluminum gas line on my jeep i purchased from summit.I have a 304 with headers and im worried about heat.Will i have a problem with heat even if i install the exhaust as far away as possible?
Wait and see is one way to tell, but being winter, you never know.
You could also do what I did. From the firewalk forward I covered my fuel lines with heater hose. This insulates quite a bit and is a nice, cushy cover for the lines for when a rock jumps up off the trail and tries to play "lets screw with Mike's Jeep."
Since mine are orange, it does not look cool, but it seems to work very well on my set up, but I have no headers and am only running a 258 w/ FI.
You could also wrap the headers, but I have not seen this done in a while.

Ummm... been wondering about gas lines... is aluminum a better choice than stainless? I'm going to install some new lines in about a month on my 86 CJ7. I was tending toward aluminum also... what made you decide on it rather than stainless?
Junger i went with aluminum for the only reason it was cheaper.stainless pre-bent lines will run about 90 bucks.I bought my line from summit in a coil.It was easy to work with,u can bend it with your hands and u dont need a bender.Summit part #3131 is the 3/8 aluminum line, I believe the lengh was 20 feet,I had alot left over.
