CJ fuel injection

I'm interested in swaping out my weber for a fuel injection. Does anyone have any recommendations on brands, brands available, war stories or anything I should be aware of?

I have a 84' CJ7 4.0.

Thank you.

Are you looking to simply do a TBI or Howell style fuel injection conversion, or drop in a 4.0 head with fuel injection? I considered running a 4.0L head on my 258, but ended up going with an entire replacement 4.0 out of a '93 Cherokee.

No head replacement, just a Howell tbi type, is there any other brands out there that you can think of?

a webber likes to run on road at 3.5 . and 1.5 offroad just add a fuel pressure regulator to the webber and you will love it . I did it and it works great.and cheap too.

I don't use a return line and I was pummping out 7PSI.

Where is the regulator mounted at on your CJ Blue?

I have a weber 38 DGES on my 80, 4.2, and have never really been able to dial it in, it seems to run rich, as I have always had a backfire through the exhaust when I let off the throttle, particularly on long downhills.

Fuel pressure is super important.
A regulator can be located in the fuel supply line between the fuel pump and carb.

If you own a Renix Jeep, you'll want to check this out.

I've done that also. Works great.

Here's the rub on this whole deal. You need to adjust the FPR using a fuel pressure gauge. Do NOT trust the numbers on the regulator itself.
