    Looks good! They should work well for me.

    Just got the Rocky Road suspension on. Had to cut off my Saginaw mount, so I will be able to place it where I need it.

    I just ordered the Novak headers. Really hoping they work in my CJ.

    I ordered the AA Fenderwell headers but they were a no go without destroying the firewall support brackets. Also there are some angle iron slider type bars the PO made that are blocking where the exhaust would have gone.

    It’s frustrating trying to get things to fit after someone did a hack job to it.

    Just FYI - I was going through my parts stack on Saturday and I do have a full set of the Headers. If you need any more pictures let me know.

    Curious if the Novak headers will work with the Herm PS set up?

    Don't see why not - the reverse box mounts behind the cross member and the stock manifold would be an issue there. These tuck against the block, but not as far back to the bell as stock manifolds. That also helps with a hydro clutch if your going that way too.

    I'll probably mount the ones I have on the '62 build when I get there. I have not decided which way I'm going with the exhaust yet. The front fenders on the '62 are awful nice and I would hate to cut them to run wheel well exits... but then I'm going to run a rear tank so something has to move somewhere.

    Any info on the swaybar? Obviously its a custom piece. I am looking at several options and curious about yours.

    It is the Currie antirock, only one the right width for our early jeeps. This also drives the sway bar diameter - which is why I am adding some adjustability. Currie states you don’t have to take it off for off-roading, mine will be easily removable w sway bar pins. With my decreasing the lever arm it will increase the force exerted on the axle - sports car like. :rofl:
    Actually just want to tune between front and back
    Sway bar located up front of rear axle to allow for tank in rear

    The bar
    CE-9903J - Antirock® Sway Bar Only (32" Long x .700" o.d.)

    Tube
    CE-9903H - Universal Antirock® Mounting Tube (for 32" Bar)

    Rear arms
    CE-99003-JKL - Antirock® Sway Bar Bent Steel Arm (16")

    Front arms
    CE-99003-17 - Antirock® Sway Bar Steel Arm (17")

    Bent arms require more holes for adjustability - picked the shortest straight and off-set ones
