    I don't have any answers for you (others will be along that know better than me), but I'd love to see some pictures of this thing.

    The 4.0 engine was a pretty good one. If you don't think you need the extra horsepower, I'd stay closer to stock for reliability. If you want to perk up the low end, you can find a cam that will do that.
