Re: Exhaust for CJ5 with AMC 401 and Hedman hedders
In frame aftermarket headers for AMC V8s hang down too low and are in just the wrong place to make off road use comfortable. The header collector is just asking a rock to come up and smack it into other things like the clutch linkage.
The ones that go out board the frame put the rest of your exhaust too low (and maybe not legal in some states).
But since you are tooling around in CA where a hot 401 with a kewl rumble sound gathers up all of the hot chicks. You only want to play in the desert and won't be going over any pesky rocks..... Why not.
All in how you want to use it.
