Tried to install the BBK's and they did not work, passenger side did not have enough clearance to clear the suspension mount. Looked like driver side would clear.

In my case they did not fit the 4x4.

Bilstein 5100's max height is all I have on the front suspension, yeah I am going with the JBA's, I can't afford long tubes and I don't know enough about them with regards to my truck passing county emissions tests.

Next mod torque converter and I think that will be it for me. Funny, the drive train mods all stared with me wanting my hemi to have a little more power....

The JBA's have a totally different port design, it is D shaped. Otherwise they are similar though it seems that the BBK has a much cleaner flange area.

I don't know enough about engines to know which is the better port design but here they are for comparison.

The order is BBK header, JBA header, BBK port, JBA port
