Looking for the best header?

I have 4.0l out of a '93 YJ wrangler and my header is leaking, I don't know what type I should go with. it has a steel header on it now.
thanks in advance

cheap one off ebay for about 66 bucks.. Make sure it has the accordion tubes on each end.. Those last about as long as any I have seen.
Example below... search around for the best deal. They all about the same

I'd go back to a cast manifold. Doing power things to a Jeep motor is like lifting a Camaro.

I like my Pacesetter. It goes around the oil pan.

I got an el-cheapo on Amazon a few years ago.

80 bucks and is holding up perfectly even with the Las Vegas heat and my abuse.

The expansion joint will extend the life of the manifold.

I also have the pace setter, I've looked at many others and I like the way mine fits. can easily remove the exhaust when pulling engine or transmission, not like some I've worked on.
