Looking for 460 4X4 Headers for a '79 F250

Does anyone know of make and models of headers I can use for a 460 swap on a '79 F250 4X4? The only company I have found so far is L&L.

Hedman and mad dog both make fenderwell exit if you need 2" primary tubes. Mad dog can do 2 1/8 and 2 1/4 primary but they take time to get. I ordered some a month ago and they still haven't even started on them yet.

Stan's headers, in Washington state, makes a really nice set of in frame exit headers tri y design. I have a set in a 78 f150, great for the street 460 not so much a really high performance as they are 1 3/4 primary to 2" to 2.5" stepped.

Unless one is making more than 600 HP the 1 3/4" primarys are fine and will make better average torque.
I use Stan Johnson for my header needs as well as my clients. Good product and good man to deal with.
He is about 3 miles from the shop and I've known him for more years than i can recall.
