C.F.R.? Advise Please

on my 83 cj7 i have the 258ci inline six (stock with plastic valve cover) and i cant get the valve cover to seal, i know i can buy a steel or aluminum one for it, and i know i may or will have to drill and tap holes... bummer, but i found a really cheap one on amazon (here is the link Amazon.com: 1964-88 AMC/Jeep 199-232-258 Straight/Inline 6 Cylinder Steel Valve Cover - Chrome: Automotive ) but i have never heard of "c.f.r. preformance". so all i really would like to know is; is this company any good? also is there any better idea for me?

Some, 86's and 87-90 4.2 have a different valve cover. It's the same as a 4.0. I have several of those but they won't fit your 83. unless you have a latter cyl head.
My fleet:
86 CJ7 5.7 vortec. 4L60,D44's,OBA,Air tank bumpers w/D rings detroits,4.88,35" bfg, mt's 9500ti warn
86 CJ7 2.5 detroits, OBA 4.56, air tank bumpers, w/D rings,9500I warn 31x10.5x15, Trxus
86 CJ7 bone stock, w/factory 44 never seen the dirt soon to be for sale
87 Wrangler also never seen the dirt.
