Most factory exhaust manifolds are very restrictive because more than one cylinder dumps exhaust into the same small space. You can improve exhaust flow and performance by replacing your exhaust manifold with this exhaust header from Rugged Ridge. It features large diameter individual exhaust tubes that allow unrestricted exhaust flow from the cylinder head exhaust ports.
These headers will not only improve performance today, but for years to come because they're built to last. For example, the flanges are welded 360 degrees to stand up to the hottest conditions. Choose from black painted steel, 409 stainless steel, 304 polished stainless steel, or high temperature black ceramic coated 409 stainless steel. Polished headers will give your Jeep a show truck look, and the ceramic coating not only looks great, it protects against corrosion and thermal fatigue. Ceramic coating also enables the header to retain heat better than other headers, and this retained heat in turn improves air density in the combustion chamber for enhanced airflow. This improved airflow increases exhaust gas exit velocity for performance gains, and reduces underhood temperature.
Each header comes with the manifold gasket, down pipe flange gasket and mounting hardware. 1997-99 models reuse the factory head pipe. The Rugged Ridge exhaust header is backed by a 3-year limited warranty against corrosion.
Rugged Ridge® is a division of Omix-Ada, the leader in Jeep replacement parts. Based in Suwanee, Georgia, Rugged Ridge was begun almost two decades ago when the enthusiasts at Omix-Ada decided that even a vehicle as tough as a Jeep could be improved upon. Since then, Rugged Ridge has created over 500 accessories to improve your Jeep's performance, utility and appearance. Unlike parts made for ordinary vehicles, Rugged Ridge knows that every part made for a Jeep must uphold the Jeep tradition of strength and capability, so every part is designed, tested, manufactured and tested again to make sure it's perfected. Then and only then can it be installed on your Jeep.
