Exhaust Manifold leak?

anyone having issue with exhaust system leaks.Particularly at the manifold? My 09 was on the drivers side. i found loose bolts at the pipe flange /manifold. The nut keepers were spread way out on one and useless when bent back. I tightened both sides as needed but still hear a leak. Got to pull heat shield and check manifold at the head. raining...damn.

It's not uncommon for the driver's side exhaust manifold to crack.

Welding a crack in something cast usually isn't the most successful method. Another manifold probably isn't too expensive?

Believe the ds manifold is less than $100 last time I priced it.

You might try to contact a shop or an individual that has recently done a Hemi swap, and get theirs'.

I gave mine away to a fellow JKer that had the same problem with his driver's side manifold cracking.
