Is it true that it is a PITA to get the JBA headers on an 08 GC laredo?

I wouldn't think so. When you get them do a test fit.

to add on, you will need to pull the starter out to install the D/S header. that one installs from underneath. I recommend putting a small dent in the #1 tube so it clears the carrier for the steering shaft. I have pics somewhere in the performance love thread showing where it makes contact. it barely touches it on the edge. DO NOT WRAP THEM, they will crack like Land Eagle's did and JBA advises against wraps.

Passengers side also installs from underneath, but in a little different way. From underneath, slide it along the fender from the T-Stat housing area. I found this makes it a lot easier to get in.

My buddy, who at the time was a army mechanic like me, helped me do the install so you should have a second pair of hands to help you. It took us 4hrs to do in his driveway with just hand tools.

When you go to buy them, look on summit racing's site, they list as for the 05 liberty and have different finishes. I went with the cheaper S/S finish cuz I was gonna coat them myself, but they have ceramic and titanium coatings too.

Alex, some of this applies to you as well cuz I know your about to pull the trigger on them. Josh should be able to help you out when he has the time.

Ill dig for pics....

any way, Pics;

where it makes contact:




Land Eagle's Fix:




Why you don't wrap em:







Oh One more thing, Ditch the bolts that jba supplies for the mid pipe connections. they are low grade, grade 5 bolts. Upgrade to grade 8 with lock washers tp prevent them from falling out. Had it happen 3 weeks after install. Keep the ones that bolt them to the heads, the are needed.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

So I would need to dent pipe one right? Also do I get the option to choose my bolts as you say?
