just search and google around...fuel injection is more reliable, it's better offroad, and it could give you more power and mpg...yeah if your jeep is 1990 then yours is a YJ so your in theh right section TJ=1997-2006 round headlight
YJ=87-96 square headlight
CJ=86 and earlier round headlight
and to answer your question about the 4" lift...rough country probably has the best bang for the buck...they make a complete 4" kit for $430...very good if you ask me...you might get some vibes and you may want to get a slip yoke eliminator and a cv style driveshaft but its not mandantory...the kit should come with a transfer case drop kit which will help so you don't have to get a new driveshaft and sye...and you might also want to regear but once again its not mandantory...it will help restore power but if you don't you should be fine without since you have the 4.2...and your axles should be fine if your runnin 33's ...i think thats about all

Depends on your budget too. I probably should have gone to fuel injection during my rebuild but went with the Weber instead. It works really well though I like it much better than the OEM carb.
