Whats "cheap"? Cheap headers are usually $300-$400. Good headers are usually $600+.... ARH's are just overpriced as they have the market cornered. More power to them if they can sell them at that price as they are a good quality product, but that doesnt mean other companies dont have quality products at a lower price point.

Im sure ARH will drop their prices substantially when cheaper LTs arrive for us. Hell, the shorties are probably putting a dent in their sales now as it is.

Jeep LT's will only match at the heads, it will be a real tossup whether they clear everything else.
You'll also likely need someone who can cut and re-weld your cats into position, and relocate your o2 sensors bungs.

I refuse to use a non coated header, so ARH's are close to $2k
after international shipping and sending them out for ceramic coating.

For about Half of that you'de be better off with coated JBA shorties ($555)
and a 2800-3000 stall Torque Converter ($525)

My Edge TC was last Fall,
Just finished my JBA install today.
It's a VERY tight fit!

A guy on DT just put SRT8 Kooks headers on a 2wd truck with only a slight tap on a primary to make it fit! OBX ones should work fine...might need a little TLC on one primary tube, but easy install!

Do you guys think the 1 7/8" primary tubes are to big for a lightly modded 5.7?? Will low end torque suffer with the large primary tubes?

just finished install of obx longtubes on 08 ram. Sound wicked awesome. Quality is great, not just for the price either. Get lots of double takes at WOT! Best headers I have purchased by far!!! Highly recommend them as an ARH alternative.

Here is a copy and paste to the post Timmy is talking about. This guy installed Kooks SRT8 longtubes and he also said that OBX longtubes will fit. His truck is a 2011 2wd express. He is running a '10 PCM swap with the rear O2s turned off to avoid the typical codes associated with a longtube install.

"Installed a set of Kooks On my 2011 Ram last Night...
They are Off a SRT8 Jeep.
Got them Pretty cheap used.
I didnt have to do any modification on the passenger side for fitment except remove a heat shield that coverts the rear of the motor mount.
On the drivers side i had to remove the same shield and dent one of the primary tubes about an 1/8th inch to clear the motor mount.

Well worth it IMO
The small dent will not affect performance at all.

*Note*
You will need a longer O2 sensor on the drivers side.
On passenger side you will need to cut the zip tie holding the sensor up so it can reach the header
"

I also have the question in to figure out how he lengthened the O2 sensor wire. I'll post up when I hear back.

it would take about 10 mins to cut and solder in an extension if you buy the same gauge wire
