Hmm, they look kind of dark, like they're painted. So they're not stainless?

Got it. The JBAs we installed on my wife's Dakota R/T were Hot Jet coated, and looked to be stainless because of the finish. They still look almost new, but then again, the truck has less than 4000 miles on it. :lol:

I just have to ask, did they clear the oil cooler and plumbing? And I didn't notice any 02 sensors?
Thanks

Looks like according to Groundczero, they "fit without any issues". You can see the O2 sensor wires in the picture on page 2. You can see the connector on the driver's side handing down between the transmission and the collector.

Oh , I see the connector by the collectors maybe the bungs are welded in on top out of view or the pictures are only of the mocked up system prior to final welding.

Sorry have been busy with the Hurricane prep and then unshuttering houses. The headers were the coated ones. The picture I took was mid build so O2 were not hooked up yet, but I needed to get different o2 sensors with a little longer wires on them. When I mean no issues with fitment I mean that no issues with linkage or trans coolers or anything, the bolted right up. It is easier doing this with a lift since these go in from underneath the car.
