Clifford Performance, or Compcams

I personally would go towards Clifford Performance since thats who Jeep used for parts in their racing applications

I ran a Clifford can in my 76 CJ, I don't remember the part number or specs right off hand. That was over a decade ago. Lol. But it was a mild cam for low end. Not sure what comp has to offer.

No experience with it personally, but judging by the specs it'll be a good low end cam. According to the guys over at jeepstrokers, you can use it on the factory 4.0 fuel injection without a tune, so it must be pretty mild.

Sounds like it would be great for your application.

Thanks man. I'm really leaning towards it. Just got to get it ordered. It's all I lack as of now to get this thing put back together.
