Cam recommendation

My tow to NC was a partial success, I won the race, but my Jeeps cam now has one less lobe. No. 6 intake valve, no movement at all. So it's overhaul time. The cam I had was a dual-pattern, 270-280 deg, .448-.472 lift, 110 lobe spread. the only changes i'll be making from what I already have is heads with 3angle valve job, and bored .040 over with pistons that will give it about a 8.5 compression ratio. no other changes from what's in my signature. It will be used 90% of the time for towing only,about a 4000lb load. What do you guys recommend for a cam?

I just installed a cam from Maddog racing off ebay IT&viewitem=&item=8071307994&rd=1,1
So far so good. Engine runs great, idles nice but i can hear a little thump at idle. Going to try it in my new to me motor for my J20, building it as a tow rig.

Another member (Kris) recommended this cam several years ago and I had one made. I had this in another Wag I had built and subsequently sold. I can say that if I were to build another engine I would install this cam.

Engle Cams (

K-52 Intake
valve lift - .489"
duration - 254 degrees
cam lift - .305"
duration - 209 degrees
lobe center - 112 degrees

K-54 Exhaust
valve lift - .501"
duration - 260 degrees
cam lift - .313"
duration @ .050" - 214 degrees
lobe center 112 degrees

I also used the Engle Cams: springs, retainers, and lifter set.
