That's basically impossible in a 4.0 head unless you have installed incorrect length plugs(by quite a bit). Maybe if you had some kind of a "domed" piston but........

Re: Fuel smell upon starting

Definitely one less thing to worry about. I know Im not going to get great mileage until I change gears. Saving up for those. Thinking of a Dana 44 up front and a 9 rear end. Thinking 4.56 gears. Would these gears and axles be to much for the Cherokee?

It would depend on your desired goals. Those would be the ultimate axles but require deep pockets and/or fab work.
