Exclamation '09-'12 BBK Headers vs JBA Cat4ward Headers

Having a real tough time deciding here. The BBK's are more affordable by $100+, but I couldn't find any info on performance gains. The JBA just makes my simple mind think more expensive = better.

Anyone find these headers good for them? Is there a reason I should choose one over the other?

The JBA's are port match and the BBK's are oval in stead of the D shape of our trucks. And the BBK's want work on 4x4

I have a 1500 2WD.

So the BBK's being oval, does that mean they wont fit? Or work "not as good"? I'm kinda noobish so I don't know if I should bother with them or not.

When they are port matched the exhaust flows alot better, hands down JBA's are a better choice over the BBK's
