He says it will lighten the valve train. I'm on the fence. What do you all think?

Ooh, fancy. But, if you're really trying to lighten the valve train, why not just do away with them altogether? That way you also don't have to run the risk of this:

Did you go with it? A buddy here is thinking the same idea. We are gonna take a look at it right after we finished installing the Smittybilt parts on the current jeep project. It seems getting them done altogether is better.
