not cj, but Blue Thunder sells plain finned valve covers that look similar.
They are very high quality, maybe a bit taller inside for roller rocker clearance.
Survival Motorsports sells them. I have a pair on my engine.
Here's a link to Survial Motorsports:

Yes, "79cobra", I am looking for a set of covers that look almost like the ones above. Came on the CJ's and some of the PI's.

How about these? $200 plus shipping, less than 100 miles on them. They are sitting in my garage.

I really like those blue thunder ones. I was hoping to find some a lot cheaper, but it might not happen. "Hoofbeat", thanks anyway, but I prefer the plain type.
