Soon to be newbie from IN!

Hello all!

I have been lurking around for a bit wanting to do some research before I bite the bullet and get wrangler fever, so I figured I'd drop in and say hello since im only a signature away now!

I'm looking at a '90 YJ with 140k, 10k lb winch, tube bumpers front and rear, 3'' high with AMracing steels. she looks gorgeous to me, and I'm ecstatic.

I haven't flat out found an answer, so I'd figure to ask ya'll: correct me if I'm wrong, but YJ's were carbureted until 91? Is it guaranteed that this one will be? I've asked the guy selling it a bazillion questions, so I'm waiting on his responses. (he's not too much of a people person it seems)

anywho, looking forward to driving this puppy home soon, and excited to learn a thing or two!

cheers,
jake

I have almost no problem with it being carb. It fires right up cold or warm out.
