Default NEW BBK's...will they fit???

I have a set of BBK shorties on the way for my 2012 1500 4x4, they will arrive the middle of next week and I am planning on TRYING to install them on Friday. I was told that they are the new ones with the redesigned ports, hopefully I can report to all who are waiting whether they fit or not.

I received the headers today, I have added a few pics of the ports, I would like some opinions on the port shape, I did not see the BBK's with the "round" ports.

These ports look kinda rough like they took the old headers and just did some machining on them to make them work, but I am by no means an expert on exhaust headers and for all I know they may be perfect. Please give your opinions, I would like to know what the knowledgeable members think before I try to install them.

I have not seen a set with a shape like that yet by BBK, let us know if they work on your 4x4 though

Thanks

Wish i could be more help, some of the other guys who have already installed headers need to chime in.. It would royally piss me off to tear the stock manifolds off and that header not line up 100% as it should.

I am not aware of alot of people here with 4x4's running the BBK's as there was fitment issues with them for a long time on the 2009+ ram 1500 and might still be almost everyone I have talked to and read about with 4x4 are either running JBA's or American Racing longtubes.

Thanks

I hear you, I am very skeptical that they will fit, I am tempted to order a pair of JBA shorties just to have so in case these do not fit I will have something to install so the labor dollars are not wasted.

For 1/2 the price of the JBA's I had to give the BBK's a chance, I have read some say that they did fit 4x4's (older models) I hope that is the way it is.......

BBK said they would not fit a 4x4, there was a clearance issue with the front suspension. I had to try because several owners of older Ram 4x4's were able to get the BBK's to work even though they were not supposed to.

I am not going to install tomorrow, I ordered some JBA's and they will not be here before Monday, want to have a proven product in case the BBK's do not fit. The labor is expensive so one way or the other I am going to get a set of headers installed.
