Your jeep is fuel injected. There are people who take their carbureted Jeeps and convert them to fuel injected. There are many advantages to having a fuel injected Jeep. You are good with what you have. You should do some searches on JF on your type of Jeep, learn more about it, and see what other people with your make/ model are doing. I can't help with the engine related side because mine is carbureted. It's a different beast.

So about the carb. It seems people here are saying that I dont have a carb...should I add one? I have no problems starting and it doesn't stall on me. I just pupmp the gas pedal as I turn it over and she fires up. So would a carb help the engine perform better? or is it something I shouldnt even both with?
No, you have Throttle Body Injection, it looks like a carb sorta but not a carb. Stick with what you've got.
