    Does it have to be the same carburator?

    My 89 YJ 258 has a 2 barrel on it. Changed it out to a holley carb.

    Salavage Yard?

    That will most likely be the Carter YF, also look at listings for a Ford I6

    Don't know where you're located but FN Jeep in Colo Springs will most likely have either a single or double bbl carter carb for you. They have a very extensive yard and have rebuilt carbs for sale.

    I would do what buckaroo did and swap out for either a holley, weber or motorcraft. They would be a great improvement over stock 1bbl.

    You would mount a Holley or MC on a one barrel intake? How?
    A Weber DFEV, or a Holley 5200 will fit nicely. But the Larger Holley or MC base plate would be to large physically wouldn't it?

    The Motorcraft 2100 (I think that's the number IIRC) will fit on the 4.2L intake as will the H 5200. I don't think we're talking about anything larger than what physically fits the carb plate.

    Good deal. I'm thinking I have the door situation figured out too. YJ and even CJ doors should work just fine, so let me know and we can do this. Thanks again.
