They don't have factory headers. They have exhaust manifolds. Are you telling me the frame rails on a TJ are narrower than a YJ?

The tj frame is narrower then the yj because of the recess for the springs. I don't know how the 6.0 have there manifolds routed but I will know soon when I put a 6.0 in mine

Benny87 used factory 5.3L manifolds (same as 6.0L) on his TJ and made it work just fine.... Until he had heat issues and swapped them out for direct fit shorties.

Mine is a YJ & I used the manifolds. Benny's is a TJ and he used the manifolds.

jimmy has the manifolds on his also(5.3).but it is a 90 degree bend and about a inch of clearence.novak also says use the block header. i really don't give a fukc what she uses now. to do it right you have to buy a header.

Happy New Year to "Her Rig" I know it's two days early. Can't wait to see you mash the pedal to the floor for the first time
