I'd put the $$$ towards gears before headers. You're going to see better results with deeper gearing than the typical engine upgrades.

I'd hit up a local junkyard and grab one off another Jeep with a 4.0L in it.

I'll 3rd the LubeLocker gaskets. Got them on both diffs & the transmission on my current WJ. Pricey but worth it to me.
