I need advise on TR/Carb/FI

I posted this under CJ but I thought this was maybe a better forum. I have an 81cj with a 258.
I live in CA where they don't allow you to change much very easily. I hate the number of hoses
hooked up to the carb and was wondering about the TB system. Can you put on an adapter
and then just buy a 4.3 TB out of a junkyard? I like the idea and power of the actual dodge fuel
injection but that is SUPER pricey for me. I am doing a re-ring and bearing with a new camshaft
right now. When I put it back together maybe I would be better off just taking it to a good carb
guy to do the hoses and leave it carbureted. I inherited the jeep not running and right now the
hoses look like a monkey was swinging thru the engine compartment. Just looking for some good
opinions. Anyone else live in CA and do the same thing? I would love to at least make it throttle
body controlled.

I am in somewhat the same predicament with my new 360 that I'm going to replace my 304 with - I would really want FI but the only approved system is the Holley Projection and I've heard very little good about this system...
