Arrow Carb issues, 90 wrangler, need input..... Help !!!!

SO I have a 90 jeep wrangler, 4.2 inline 6. Strong motor but nothing but carb issues. Went with the weber carb. (32/36 DGEV), had alot of issues with it, mostly when you punched it, backfired, boggs out to point may stall-had to let off gas for it to catch up. In mudd puddle cant punch it to get out cause may stall from bogging out. So i called weber, got fuel regulator and did nutter bypass. Now they recommend new jets (which none of this was told when I first got it). Mechanics from no excuses in new eygpt (specialize in jeeps and great ratings) new jersey say they not big fans of weber carbs. Getting refund from weber, but mechanics recommend a carter replacement which is the crown carburetors. Thats what they are installing. I saw bad reviews on carters but they said these new ones arent problematic as older ones. Beyond frustrated, anyone have any opinions or recomondations? Next step gonna drive the jeep into ocean and get a pick up, lol.

Yeah....You might try posting in the YJ section.
FWIW, I've installed quite a few Webers, including two or three on 258's, and the'yve all worked great after they were tuned and adjusted..

Skip the Carter. Had one on my cj7 and my hi and both were garbage. Many 258 guys go with a motorcraft 2100 from a ford. You could also follow my route and buy a fuel injected tj so you no longer have to deal with this nonsense. I would suggest learning how to work on your rig yourself otherwise this hobby is going to get expensive very fast.
