I still have a (repaired) 1998(?) TJ manifold hanging in my shop, if it will work. Would like to see it put to use before I get tired of looking at it and scrap it.

Dorman makes a manifold for it... 2  in stock
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o

full exhaust installed last night.  had to do some interesting things to mate to the abortion of spooge on the header collector.
Adjustable track bar and new drop track bar bracket installed.  actually got the bolts out and reused them.  couldn't get any of the junkyard ones to budge.
