4.0 head swap and NEW cam and lifters.
They are not expensive goofing with used cam and lifters will only cost much more in the long run.

yea thats what i was thinking. if i had my way id have new everything in there. pops is just really thinking about the other cam. if its wore at all im not putting that in my motor. definetly getting new lifters, and local pick and pull has a 4.0 head for $100. if i put a 4.0 head on can i use my intake? id really like to stick to the simplicity of a carb.

There is no way I would go this far and install new lifters on a old cam. It may save you some money today but it will cost you twice as much down the road when your new lifters take a dump because there were put on a old cam.
I have plenty of cam info in my sig.
Looks like you have been detonating, that is the usual damage.

i understand what your getting at, and a new cam is still running through my head but if i get a new one id like to get one so i can get a little more lope out of the motor. any suggestions on one without having to go through a bunch of work with my valve train?

To get lope you need a cam with over lap, this will kill your low end torque which is what you need in a Jeep. I suggest onee of these http://www.compperformancegroupstore..._Code=A6CAMSHE
I am using the 260H.
None of these cams require any extra work.
