Take plastic engine cover off, which is on top of engine. You will find 4 Allen screws holding the cover in place. The cover is mounted on top of the valve covers.

The Model and Year of Jeep and engine size is required information for a specific answer. The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP or sometimes CPS) is located on the transmission bell housing. The Camshaft Position Sensor ( sometimes called the Camshaft Pickup or CPS) is located inside the distributor. If your Jeep has the coil-on-plug distributor-less ignition, it still has a Camshaft Sensor in the same location as the distributor would be located.
