I need to get a head pipe for my AMC V8 CJ. My engine dr. side exhst manifold is a center dump. Is this the same as a 1980-81 CJ or did the 1980's V8 CJ's switch to a rear dump? The reason I'm asking is that the truck can't be moved easily to a exhaust shop for a custom exhaust. Thanks.
Only the '80+ SJ (Grand Wagoneer), J10/20s have the rear dump left exhaust manifold, ( to clear the front driveline better). All the '70+ V8 AMC cars, CJs and '79 and earlier SJ/J10s/20s have the center dump left manifold. (There is only one style right manifold after'70).
