Pulling a boat I'd expect you would want as much power as it can make. A carb is a major step backwards in that.

and the carbed version of the 242 amc inline six makes 175hp, the mpfi 242 is already sluggish and underpowered in the wj at 190hp.

besides, the transmission won't have a single clue what to do with its self if you remove the throttle position sensor. then there's the matter of regulating fuel pressure at under 10psi instead of the 49 your motor currently uses.

Do tell why it is you want a carb for a fully computer controlled vehicle ? Prepper ?

For nearly all applications, fuel injection, and electronic ignition is superior. You could always sell your Jeep and buy an old pickup with a carb, points, and a condenser.
