Recomindations On Carb For My Jeep

I Was Told I Could Change The Carb To An Older Model Jeep Carb And Get Better Gas Milage And More Power...i Know If I Put Fuel Injection On It I Could Do That But It Is So Exspensive To Put Fuel Injection On It...how About The Ford 2 Barrel?

I put a Weber carb on mine. It works pretty damn well. You can buy them online at Weber Direct or from JC Whitney.

Hello again neighbor.
I'm planning to put the MC2100 on my 4.2 this weekend. I won't be able to tell you anything about mileage yet but I can keep you posted later on.

You need to remember that the Jeep is as aerodynamic as a brick. There really isn't much you can do to see much of a difference in gas mileage. i know that every little bit helps, but don't expect to see anything drastic. I added the fuel injection, header, high flow cat, flowmaster, and K&N filter all at the same time and did not see any difference.

I just 34ed mine. It said its a mix of the 32/26 and 38 and it was also the cheapest. 32/36 gives best mpg, 38 gives best power, and 34 gives a little of both. 38 is also more adjustable than the 32/36 if you mod your engine.
