4.7 Headers...Interesting Find!!!
 
So in my long never ending persuit to find headers for us 4.7 guys, I can across gibson headers. There link say they make Header for the 4.7, so sent an email to inquire. I waiting for response. If this is legit then we 4.7 guys just stepped up our game. I am assuming since everything on a Dakota/Ram 4.7 is suppose to be all interchangable with the Jeep 4.7 that everything should fit. Cross your fingers.

Then it should fit the Jeep 4.7 since the ports are the same. The thing that caught my eye was it is saying 50 State Legal, meaning for us California guys...smog legal.

which one JBA or Gibson? I found a shop down here that does custom headers, but it won't be smog legal in california so I don't wanna get it until after I pass smog. Then I wont have to do another smog test for 2-3 more years.

well the thing scott means to say is that they are for the MOTOR... not necessarily the body. The exhaust, the engine bay, the accessories, its all designed differently. something that will fit in the engine bay and attach to the exhaust of a dodge is not going to be designed to fit a jeep.

sorry bro... this thread got me excited for a second as well!

That's what I was trying to say in a quick not thorough manner. With all my mods, don't you think I would have a set if they were available? I have even priced a set of customs...

The only room for improvement short of getting a set of $$$$$$$$$$$$ custom headers made would be to coat/wrap the logs and port them out...and even then I'm not sure how much there is to gain. Depends on how badly mismatched the manifolds are to the head. I dont recall the amount of mismatch there was the last time I saw a set of 4.7 manifolds.
