WJ with CJ bloodline?

What about a WJ with no electronics, could it be done? (I mean done affordable and a daily driver). I want a WJ, but I DONT wanna worry about the fuel pump going out at 139k or some damn sensor failing. I want a carberated 258/4.0 whatever- going into a TF999/727 whatever- going into a dana 300....and nice, soft coilly springs

It would be cheaper to convert a CJ to coil springs and use the left over money for rust repair and carb rebuild kits.

Oh and fuel pumps on carb'd engines fail at 139k too.

His: '00 WJ 4.7 Limited- Some stuff

Hers: '03 WJ 4.7 Laredo- Some more stuff

Don't think so, at least not without some serious money and time. WJs were mostly electronic.

Yes they do, but at 20 bucks and nicely accessible right there bolted to the engine block. Not inside the fuel tank
