Don't touch that Jeep with a carburetor. I grew up with carbs and have tuned/rebuilt them in my younger years and I wouldn't wish carburetors on anyone but someone I didn't like. Except as an interesting museum piece, carbs have no benefit over fuel injection and too many negative drawbacks to list.
One serious problem is how carbs don't work well on steep climbs or descents due to its fuel bowl and float. Think of a toilet tank and float and how well it'd work if you tipped it to the front or rear. Carb'd engines like to stall in those situations. Not to mention they're always wanting you to tinker with them. Carbs are a PITA.
