grill/camshaft removal question

Is it possible to remove and install a camshaft without removing the grill. If its not possible how do I remove the grill.

Driving my Jeep is uncomfortable, loud and drafty.... and I love every minute of it

remove the rad
remove the wiring harness
remove the bolts holding the grill on and lift out of the way.
I think that is pretty much it.
Don't forget cam n lifters should be installed as a set.
You will need a new cover gasket and oil seal as well as the heas gasket set. I would think de-carbon the pistons and having the head freshened by a machine shop would be in order while everything is apart.
