Default 3rd gen Shortie headers.

So after I helped my bud install shortie headers on his 03 dakota yesterday, I have decided that I am interested in getting a set for mine.

I was just wondering what would be the best brand of headers for the price that I should look at getting. Any advice on install and everything else is greatly appreciated.. Thanks.

I have a set of BBK shorties in my garage, all you need is OEM gaskets and bolts. I'm sure we could make a deal, I had them on Kijiji for 250 but I will let them go for 200. I am planning on going to the meet this month if my schedule allows, delivering headers would help the warde, I mean WIFE be more reseptive for me heading that way for the day. PM me or call or text, Zach 905-380-9153.

I was looking on the BBK site and the only headers I can find say that they are designed for rwd only.

They say only 2wd, but they fit 4x4, I had them on my truck for 2 years and ran my fastes times to date at the track. They are a tight fit, but I did them in my driveway in a day, a hoist would be optimal. They aren't coated, but I don't know if its worth the extra money for coating on shorties, even my long tubes aren't coated and the heat isn't bad under the hood.

Dealer for the gaskets, there are left and right part #'s and I just used the bolts they came with, torque them and recheck after a few hundred miles. Never had a problem with mine.....

You should be able to use the bolts from your manifolds, or get new ones from the dealer, gaskets are from the dealer as well, even if you bought new headers you need OEM gaskets not the paper crap they come with. The collector bolts I will have to check if they are still in the headers, they are a thread in stud type.
