Greetings from CT

Yesterday I trailered home my first Jeep Wrangler. A 1988 Laredo 4.2L with an AX15 transmission, tilt steering, non ac, and no radio. Don't know if it has the Dana 44 rear? It has approx 152K miles. It does have frame rust in the typical spots. The rest is solid. It kind of runs. I have to set the fast idle lever on the carb, give it a shot of starting fluid, and keep it at 3K RPMs. I figure I'm at least into a carb and tune up, and maybe an exhaust.

Hopefully I can get it going in time for the spring events!
