Yes and no. It depends on if you just want a simple system, or one that is the same or close to a factory ignition system.
To run with the OEM ignition control module and stock coil, you have to use a resistor, else your coil will overheat and fail. You can just use a GM ICM, but that is wired different than stock. But the GM unit doesn't have a resistor in the power wire. A self contained HEI distributor would work the same way.
Without a starter relay you would need to get an ignition switch that would be compatible with just the starter solenoid.
If you have a donor vehicle, you could cobble something up, but just trying to piece something together with no clear end product in mind will prove difficult and frustrating.
The OEM system on your Jeep isn't perfect or the best, but it is well documented in the service manual and all parts are readily available, including wiring harnesses,
