Wagoneer Newbie

Hello All,
I just purchased my first Jeep ever. A 1972 360 V8 New Mexico Wagoneer. She is running great as of now and I'm going to do an all around tune up and brake tune up. My question is where is the best online shop for old Wagoneer parts? Are there certain brands of aftermarket parts that are better than others? Is there any way to convert the points to electronic points so as not to have to adjust the dwell and everything? Any tips on tuning my carb for high altitude (I"m at 8,000 feet). Any advice or direction for a newbie would be much appreciated.
Take it easy,
Matt

We have a site dedicated to full-size Jeeps:

www.bjsoffroad.com

Most of our parts are for the newer (74-91) FSJ's but we do have some parts for your 72.

Thanks!

I always stick to brand names that are well known or brands that come highly recomended by someone that I know.

If your Jeep has a Delco distributor you can install the Crane XR1 (points to electronic modual) conversion kit. They work great and are trouble free!
BTW 4 Wheel Parts Wholsalers is a good place for aftermarket Jeep parts too.

Just so you know, anything that 4-wheel parts carries, I can sell cheaper, just ask.
