We have used the Jet hot coating on a bunch of vehicles and have had great
results. Built up a later model CJ and the customer wanted headers. Ordered
ceramic coated headers and they burnt the coating in no time. Next set was
sent out to be Jet hot coated. As you said the inside and outside were done
and they came out perfect. Going on 4 years now with no problem. The
easiest way to burn through is to have your engine running too lean. The
heat created is intense and will burn through easily.
For older Jeep vehicles we have had good success with hi temp exhaust paints.
One of my favorite treatments is stove polish. The kind you use on wood
stoves. Looks great and lasts fairly long. I would suggest that you match
the coating to the type of driving you will be doing and the weather
conditions you will encounter.
All weather, all season driving. Jet hot is great.
Fair weather driving. Hi temp paint will work fine.
Parades and limited driving. Stove polish will work great.

Hope this points you in the right direction.
