1979 Bronco Header install

Currenlty have Headmans that have rusted from the head flange and other areas. Wasn't really satisfied on the amount of miles they had on them before rusting away. Picked up a set of Summits to replace.

This is primaraly a snow plow truck now. Trying to figure out if I will have to unbolt the engine and tranny mounts to slip/replace them? Anyone have some suggestions.

You'll know when you take the old ones out. I think the full size trucks are fairly easy to install.

Assuming it's the stock 351/400m, it should be easy. I put some cheap flowtechs on a 400m in my 79, nothing had to be unbolted or jacked up, they just went up into place.
