Aftermarket Ignition System

Anyone ever install an aftermarket ignition system? An MSD ignition module and coil to be more specific.

Kind of curious where you mounted everything and I'm unsure of where to connect my 12V switch source.

If you have any experience with them post it up.

I have seen more flops with this than success stories. The reliability of the MSD electronics is surprisingly marginal. Early failure is not unusual.

My advice would be to stick with the stock system; it is all the ignition that the Jeep 4.0 engine needs.....
