I would beef the bottom end and freshen the heads while you're in there. 3.9 can use the same valve gear, rods, pistons as a 318 (which is what it was derived from). This means you can use aftermarket forged stuff, etc, the only problem being I don't think anyone makes a forged crank for the 3.9. I don't know for sure though.
