change from fuel injection to a carb or from a carb to fuel injection? tons of people have done that.

your question is not clear.

you do have an electronic carb on your jeep. mine did at one too. when i bought it someone had already swapped it for a normal carb.

Yours is a carb. Throttle body is a fuel injection system.

Your options are swapping out to a non-feedback carb, Motorcraft is a popular one, or going with a fuel injection kit, and Howell is the popular one.

Search using those terms and you'll get days worth of reading. And check the YJ tech folder too.
