    Cylinder head machine / rebuild shops?

    Looking for any recommendations on local shops that rebuild cylinder heads. Pretty sure I popped a head gasket on my 4.7 at Cinders today, and if I take the heads off, I want to get them rebuilt with new valve seats so I don't have to worry about them dropping in the future.

    be careful on rebuilt 4.7 heads, the factory manual suggest new heads only to replace old ones? may want to check first if the shop can and will do a proper head rebuild on the 4.7?

    There's no shortage of shops selling them, I think the only fear is if you need to deck it a lot since it can mess with cam timing. Given how many people on Jeepforum seem to get by with just slapping gaskets in, I don't think most of them need to be decked much, if at all. The valve seats are a must because the factory press fit is too loose. I'm slightly amazed it didn't drop one on me with the rest of this going on!

    If you need major decking just get a custom MLS head gasket to make up the difference. Like from cometic .That's what I've always done.
