PO said he had head replaced from a newer jeep. That tells me nothing.
Need to get gasket and valve cover hardware and can't identify this setup. Looked around at some posted pics on here but nothing. Please excuse engine compartment, haven't made in there to organize:eek:

Hope pics come thru.
 
Looks to me like a 4.0 head
 
I see that this must be a common swap. Is there any reason or plus to the 4.0 head? Need to replace gasket and stuff!
 
They flow better. It's a better design

I get it, I'm a Jeep owner and ad-block detectors kinda stink but ads are needed on this site. This is a CJ site, all the ads are set for autos (some times others get through.) I cannot make them just for Jeeps but I try.

Please allow ads as they help keep this site running by offsetting the costs of software and server fees.
