http://www.ebay.com/itm/STAINLESS-HEADER...-/201157746127. It looks like the crossmember might get in the way of the center outlet. I've always used full length headers in my D100 small block trucks.

The original Mopar Performance sold headers for
Magnum 5.2/5.9 engined 1994-1996 Rams
were a Tri-Y design.
My memory might be faulty but I seem to remember that Mile Leach originally manufactured the headers for MP.

Does anyone today make a near copy of that Tri-Y design header?

Have to ask why you would want shorties when the full length Hedmans fit so well are worth more HP and are cheap...???

I've done some searching and others have also recommended the Hedman 79170. I have Hedman headers but they must be a different style. here is a pic of my header that interferes with the starter on the hydraulic bell housing.

that's the same one I had to change with my hydro bell NV4500

that is driver side 79080 with tube #7 in the way of starter.

they hang in the shed now, 79170 are what I will use from now on.

it clears front drive shaft on 4x4, no oil drains on the tubes when changing oil filter, starter swaps out with out removing header, they will slid in with no jacking of engine, have ball/cone collectors on the bottom so no wet/blown gaskets, cost less than 200$

here they are, you can see #7 tube is moved.

ok I finally got around to installing the headers. my original question noted that the truck was a 2WD. the 79170's hit the engine mount/cross member on drivers side. I had to cut a notch more than an inch deep in cross member. I welded a plate in to cover the hole and add a little strength. Just waned to let everyone know these headers are not an easy fit on a 2WD.

can you post a pic?

I don't see how either of the #1 tubes hits the cross member

my flow techs did hit the cross member and I beat the tube flat and never did get them on.

I know I have a set of both and they both fit the chassis fine.

the 79080 #7 tube would not fit a mini starter on the 93-NV4500 hydro bell housing.

the part I had to notch is a part of the cross member that is welded to the top of the cross member and riveted to the frame rail near the top. its purpose is to provide a mounting point for the motor mount and to reinforce the frame where the upper control arm mounts.
I'll try to get a pic soon.
