I'm focusing on that plethora of parts he threw at it. Made in Mexico parts most likely.

I would do the following:

Verify all the grounds are good
Verify the fuel pump is priming
Check fuel pressure
Check spark

I would make sure you have fuel and once you verify fuel, then start working on the spark. Just my .02

Also I have the 89 I6. Cleaned out my gas tank and wanted a new pickup screen for the sending unit. Had a hell of a time trying to ID the part with AutoZone. Kept reffering to the mechanical pump. My Haynes manual stressed the different pumps and the fitment importance. So he might have a variety of options but only one correct one.

Yeah Autozone and Advance pretty much suck. I started going to Oreillys and have much better luck with them. At least the parts guys don't give you the deer in headlights look when you tell them you need brakes for a Ford 8.8. It was painful buying an ebrake rebuild kit and shoes for the 8.8 I am working on. Oreillys pulled it up and we matched the parts in about 5 minutes.

I talked to him last night. OP is looking for a 4.2/tranny/TC to swap in. I had a line on a 4.2, but my buddy already sold it.

I like mine, but I run a Weber. They are easy to tune and run well. I have been thinking about the new Holley off road barc that is out, can't remember the name right off. It is hard to justify spending money on a new carb though when what I have does the job very well.

Fuel pump is not priming.
No fuel pressure.
No spark.
Tank full.

Are you guys actually reading the thread?

OP I would start with the ECU it is a known failure point with this fuel injection system.

I thought I was. Actually, I reread it and must have started over with my thinking. SMH

I am just going to hush now....

Guy on eBay sells an Edelbrock, or Holley don't recall, setup for jeep all pre tuned to your location/specs. Met a guy that runs one and raves about it.

I think you are right. I was wrong. It is Edelbrock that makes the new off road carb. I have heard good things about it as well. Man I am having a day of my head up my *** all day long.

Thanks for all the replies guys been at work all day. And yeah you read right no spark or fuel. Like it says my dad is a retired mechanic and he done said he was done looking at it. I'll check the ecu got some what of an idea on how to check it but eventually I am doing a swap to a 4.2 I know everyone says they suck this and that but here soon this will no longer be my daily driver it's gonna be my toy to go off roading in lol. Will let you all know what I find out. Also I wasn't throwing parts at it the first go around before this break down. I figured I would go ahead and replace all of what I did replace to try and prevent a few future issues. Most everything came from quadratec or napa.
