Tools needed to change head gasket 4.0L

I'm taking a trip with a 4.0L TJ that may have a head gasket problem (no choice) What special tools should I throw in? ie. what size are the head bolts, rocker arms ? I think I have everything else already. What do the head bolts torque to? rocker arms torque down or adjust like old small block chevy? I've done lot's of motor work just not on a jeep. Also any long distance things besides, duct tape, bailing wire, electrical tape, fuse's, water, tow strap, Thanks

You should get the FSM for your model year. It should give you all the information you need.

Search this forum under Manuals, BLACKTOOTHGRIN has a lot of the TJ available for download.
