Hah, they just want to sell you a car that looks like a Jeep.
Anyway, get the carb rebuild finished up and see if it helps. If not you may just need a tuneup. All good things to do on a new to you Jeep anyway. Learning to do all your own work is kind of a right of passage with an older Jeep, they are too expensive to own if you have to use a mechanic for everything, IMHO. Plus its a good learning experience, I like to be as self reliant as possible.
Back on point, how does it run other than the idle issue?
