I now have Keoni's old cam in my Jeep now and I love it, but like Ekaz said, I would recommend to upgrade springs/pushrods for any cam install.

yeah if you are going to upgrade the spings/retainers/push rods then you can pretty much go with any cam as long as the Springs you choose wiill handle the lift of your cam... I chose the Lil boy because at the time did not want to do springs and only did forged push rods... However I do plan on either upgrading the springs onmy heads or buy a set of ported heads in the future. I am very happy with how the Litttle Boy has performed for me so far... Its a great cam for the street/strip only wish the cam was a little bit more lopey....

Remember, springs/hardened push rods/retainers still only let u run a cam designed for the stock head, which has limited retainer to guide clearance. Lift is limited to .575. That said, unless a vendor designs a grind with a crazy ramp rate, I'm not sold push rods are a must on any stock head setup. Springs are very borderline and should be addressed with any aggressive grind, even if it's stock lift. Retainers...just do em, cheap insurance.

So summary, if you're really out to gain big power NA, you're gonna be pulling the heads to grind down the guides and get that lift over .600, plenty of flow there even on a stock or mildy polished head setup. If your average Joe looking to grab some more torque an a few ponies up top, stick with a grind to fit your stock heads, like the small boy or any grind Andy can do, don't try to push the stock springs and push rods, you'll only gain a few HP and run a risk of a snapped spring or bent push rod

Don't forget a convertor, if you're staying stock tell the person grinding your cam or you'll be a pig outta the hole, you'll hate your jeep and a week later already be saving a swap. Stock stall is a good match for a stock head cam, so don't fret
