Manufacturer: Redline Weber Carburetors
Recommended?
Yes: 23 / No: 1

The Original reliable Weber auto choke unit for quicker starting and faster warm up. Improved fuel economy, and replacement performance. The best compromise of performance and economy.

Progressive two barrel carburetor with electric choke.

A great replacement for that sad and tired Carter on your 4.2L.

Pros: Easy install, better MPG
Cons: N/a
Recommended? Yes

Comments: If you live in area you can eliminate emissions, this carb and a HEI distributor allows you to remove almost all the vacuum crap and computer under the hood! Engine runs smoother, stronger and better MPG's.

Price: $289.00
Pros: -Daylight and dark difference in my OEM Carter! -Easy to tune -Superior idle
Cons: -Gaskets weren't exact -Instructions were hard to follow and there were drawings and not actual photos -Had to make bracket for throttle return spring
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Ordered kit from Carbs Unlimited, payed the extra shipping and received my new carb in three days. Installed in about 1 1/2 hours, tuned in about 10 min. Had a little trouble with the gaskets matching but contacted Redline tech support and was told how to correct issue. Still have to ensure vaccum lines are in all the right places, but so far so good!

Pros: Replaced the old Carter! Easy to install, easy to set up.
Cons: Would like to get a few miles more per gallon, but I have not yet tried re-jetting.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought the Weber used of the auction site (it was not even listed as a Weber, just a YJ carb) a great deal, then bought a rebuild kit then rebuilt and installed. It is leaps and bounds above the Carter. Did have some minor issues with Choke adjustment but I think that is well behind me now.

Price: $335.00
Pros: The REDLINE K551 with the real Weber 32/36 DGEV is for typical street driving and is 100x better than the Carter BBD. I found that the instructions are very informative. When tuning I call REDLINE's tech help and found that all my questions were answered in the instructions. EXCELLENT
Cons: I don't street drive, rebuilt engine, headers, with 33" tires, and carry some weight. I needed the Weber 38-DGES, kit number K551-38, no one knows this is what my application required.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I upgraded to the K551-38 when the 32/36 at low RPM didn't have the torque that I needed with larger tires in soft dirt/sand. When tuned according to the great instructions I have GREAT low RPM torque and on the hwy I get 19 MPG. The 38-DGES is 1000x times better than the Carter BBD and 100x better than the 32/36 DGEV. Some people have said that the 38 is too big. I have thought about it and can't imagine this as, if I am at 1/2 throttle how many CFM's is that more than the 32/36 DGEV at 1/2 throttle. At wide open throttle I can see the more CFM's, but not at partial throttle. EXCELLENT choice I am sooo glad I upgraded to the Weber 38-DGES, it runs great.

Price: $340.00
Pros: Excellent choice for an all inclusive install kit, with the DGEV 32/36
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Can't go wrong with this kit. The carb arrives to you ready to install and to enjoy. All the parts necessary to install are included.

The DGEV 32/36 would give you many, many years of reliable service with a product that has built in integrity, an abundance of support, and can be tuned to suit your individual requirements, without all the hassle associated with the most recent addition to these otherwise performance oriented products.

A wise choice the DGEV 32/36, get this one to GO.

Recommended? Yes

Comments: I agree this is a nice upgrade for 1 or 2 barrel 4.2 liter jeep. Works realy well with correct jets, more power, response, and 24 mpg. Webers like a better ignition so do the TeamRush, aux grounds, and CDI if you can. Here is a link I put together for a good jet change and tune information on Weber 34/34. The carbs run and tune similar. Link info would be usefull for the 32/36 also. Lots of other links too. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=631105

Comments: This carb is head and shoulders above the stock Carter BBD. The absence of the complex stepper motor system is a huge advantage. Tuning the Weber is also easier than tuning the Carter BBD.

Comments: Amazing! I still need to do some fine tuning but it runs so much better. The gas sticks a little but i probably just need to so some more adjusting.
