I installed my JBA headers a couple of years ago on my D so the stock manifold bolts weren't as old as yours are. That being said, the long studs in the middle you can probably re-use if you are worried about breaking them off.

Did the headers come with hardware? I bought some new grade 8 stainless steel bolts for the collectors and used some ARP allen head/flange head mix bolts for the headers. Some good graphite impregnated gaskets from NAPA.

Really soak the bolts with some penetrating lube and make every effort to not apply a heavy torque to the bolts from an angle which might cause them to break.

Headers are pretty easy. As said above, a week before, start hitting each bolt with WD-40 or the like. The hardest part for you is the Mopar down pipe connects to the cat inlet. The muffler clamp may have crimped the Y-pipe inside the cat inlet and they may be tough to get apart.
