carb swap-tions

I have been debating between fuel injection and a new carb, and I have decided to keep it classy with the carb mainly because of money and time. I have been considering the Holley that Bj's sells, but wanted to know what the options are and the benefits for each. I need something that is easier to cold start and is somewhat maintenance free .

If you plan on keeping a carb and are willing to spend the money, I suggest a Holley Truck Avenger. Other carbs will work, but that's my vote.

Alright thanks for the opinions. How does the electric choke work? How easy is the cold start?

you plug the electric choke to an ignition on 12v power supply, and it does the rest. No need to adjust choke yourself.

If My Cherokee's been sitting a week, it may take 2 tries to start it. If it's been sitting a day, it usually fires up right away.
