Headers

I was thinkin about getting headers for my 05 xlt Ranger but wasnt sure which ones to get or where to get them. I searched online and only found JBA headers are these any good?

They're good and JBA is practically the only company that supports the Vulcan.

But at a 600-700 price tag theyre expensive.

http://jusnesmodified.com has them, but they say they fit up to 02 like you said. I dont think that anything has changed so they should work, but I'm not positive so maybe someone else knows or you can just give them a call and ask

i dont know why everyoine assumes jba is $600-700

all you have to do is call jba, ask them for their cheapest/best dealer, and tell them your poor

i got mine for $480 brand new

How do you like your JBA's? Does it sound good now? Was it hard to install them yourself? Cuz i called the exhaust place near me and there gonna charge 300 to install them!

I think Underdog-performance (Wayne) is having a sale on his JBA's right now.. The 02 specific dilly might have to do with the EGR, its better to just get headers that are EGR equipped and just plug up the port if you dont have it, that way, if you sell them they'll probably go for more just because they are EGR equipped..

If the installation is anything like the 4.0L JBA's, a $300 shop price is not that unreasonable. It took me a day to install them and many people say it took them a whole weekend to do at home.
