Help me pick a new Camshaft.

I was going to get a Cam from Autozone (Melling MC1377). Then I realized maybe I should just go with a slightly high performance Cam.

I looked at the Hesco RVOB6 but decided not to after I realized the head needed to be machined and I needed to replace all valve train components accept the rockers.

Then I found the mopar performance Cams. So far I am liking the P4529228ab Cam since I dont have to replace any valve train component accept the lifters which it comes with.
There is also P4529229ab Cam which from what I understand I will need to replace valve springs if used.

Right now I have narrowed it down to the Melling or the Mopar's. Anyone have any suggestions. I am leaning towards the P4529228ab since it seems to work in the lower RPM 900-4700.

K68-232-4 is their cam and lifter kit, that includes the cam, lifters, timing set, valve springs, stem seals, retainers, and locks, BUT I've looked it up in their book, and web site, and it had a side note about the "K" kits:
Quote:
K-kits will only work in 1964-88 models due to different valve stem.
Not sure how much of a difference the 258(4.2L) valve stems have compared to the 4.0L's but worst case scenario is that you would need to source your own stem seals, locks, and retainers. They should be able to give you more info.

Yah... Comp is good but check out both 505 and Hesco. My H264 Hesco cam has worked out pretty well.
