Just out of curiousity, what about the valve cover was changed for the last few years of the 4.0? I've thought about a aluminum valve cover for my '05 but apparently they don't make them.

The clearances on these covers are different than OEM. And the internal baffle is different.
I was wondering if the baffle might be an issue. I've run across import valve covers (different application/not Jeep) that had no baffle system at all. Are you aware of anyone encountering a problem with the baffle in these?

I am not aware of any positive or negatives to this cover. On a stock Jeep the throttle cable retainers can be swapped to this cover. I do know that it is used on some stroker builds to allow more room for the rockers. I have no more room to give above my engine so I am using the stock valve cover with clearanced rockers and the baffle left 100% intact. The stock cover just works and there's nothing wrong with it aside from cosmetics which can be painted.
