Re: 4.0L Exhaust Manifold Woes
Thanks, MIG weld is what I will do then. I will pay close attention to the pipe when we run all new stuff from this tranplanted 4.0 to the end of the tail pipe. Should I use Jeep brand gasket or is NAPA version just as good too use? Cooper based anti-sieze, got it, not the gray stuff. Any suggestions Dawg on the CAT or muffler type to use? This will be daily driver. Duane

I had success in mig welding the manifold on the Cherokee so you should have the same luck. Make sure the pipe is bolting up without putting any stress on the exhaust manifold...I would suspect that this would be a major cause of cracks...and leaks....
Fix that and you will be fine with a stock gasket.
As for anti-sieze....I use the copper based grease...
Sorry...I don't know the bolt size
