that's called "blow-by"
it seems to be common with the Jeep motors... and yours doesn't look too bad really.

that said, the only thing I'm aware of to get rid of (or at least minimize) the problem is to clean (or possibly replace) the pcv and the baffles under the valve cover

I agree clean out the PCV/CCV system including removing the valve cover and cleaning out the baffles.
Ensure that all of the hoses are clear and not cracked/broken.
Beyond that would require having the cylinders honed and install new rings at a minimum, from what I can see that would be overkill.
