If you want headers that won't leak, or rust out get JBAs. As for the igntion, I have used both very successfully. I like the MSD 6AL myself because its cheap and has a programmable soft-touch rev limiter. Yes theres a big difference in 4wd and 2wd headers. The Crane is pretty much a copy of the MSD. Just my $.02

I have hedman headers on my 91 4.3 and they were 99.00 bucks from summit compared to almost 200 for edelbrocks.The hedmans are full length so you have to modify your y pipe quite a bit if you want to run single exhaust(like i did).

GO with the JBA..I have the Edelbrock and nothing about their performance is bad but they rust fairly quick.. I have had one major leak already that I had repaired.. Edelbrock is a 1 year warranty.. The JBA are nickel coated and a full lifetime warranty.. You will not EVER want to take these thing off again.. Trust me.. Almost pulled the motor out a little to make it easier..
JBA makes about 10 different headers for the 4wd truck and blazer with the 4.3L.. Diff years, fits, body/suspention lift whatever..
