Boilover not engine runs rough

So yesterday on the beach my jeep boiled over due to a bad gauge and now it runs rough
All fluids are good,no discolored exhaust,no bubbling out of radiator
I have to check compression and ignition monday

Can anyone give any input on weather my head might be cracked, warped, or bad head gasket please
Any input will be nice iam just trying so see what i have to content with
Thanks!

See what the compression test says before any answers are thrown out.

Wise choice. Only about an hour with the head off. You will need a valve spring compressor.
