Carb swap, considering a Weber upgrade.

Ok so I am having the same trouble than like 99 % of yj owners have or have had. It wont idle, runs awesome other than that but at stop signs and redlights she dies. I have done some research myself but am looking for some other opinions. I have the Carter BBD carb on it now and all the research I have done has pointed me toward the upgrade. I have found that the Weber is a quality carb and it is a pretty good price. So any feedback is welcome and would be appreciated.

It's better to die on your feet than to live your life on you knees!

I put a MC2100 on mine and couldn't be happier. Also alot cheaper than a Weber.

over christmas break i installed a Holley 2300 truck avenger 2 barrel carby, using mr. gasket #1937 adapter. couldn't be happier she comes off the line like a champ and will idle all day long if i let her. fuel mileage has also gone up to 18-19mpg over the 14mpg the carter was giving me. (31s on 3.07 gears)

i looked at the mc2100 first, but to buy it prof rebuilt was around $220, and the brand new holley (which has loads of aftermarket support) was $275 at JEGS. just my 2 cents

The same thing was going on with mine, put the weber 34/34 in and runs perfect. Gas milage isnt to good, but its a jeep, what do you expect, ha.

Ditto on the Motorcraft 2100. Best mod I've made to date on my 4.2L. EZ install too. Search E-bay Motors for "Jeep 2100" and you'll find the guy in Colorado Springs. Included great documentation and answered all my questions.
