Come to find out it was a U bolt that some how allowed to rear to move within the springs...just a few turns of a wrench and was fine... WINDROCK trip went well...broke nothing!!! I did have one MAJOR problem.. when climbing straight up the hills...my CJ would spit and sputter and sometimes (many times) die...was feathering the gas all day...I'm thinking a carb. issue... ANY ADVISE??

Very common. Do a little reading on carb swaps. I just swapped a MC2100 on mine, and can't get steep enough for it to flood. The day I threw the old Carter carb in the trash, was one of the happiest days in my Jeep's life.

Is it JUST going up steep hills? or anytime you are under load? Like, does it also sputter if you floor it in a high gear and low RPM?

If its just hills, then probobly just in the carb, ie bad float, etc.
If anytime under load, then could be a long list. ie ignition system (plugs, caps, wires). The engine needs a strong spark when under load, so you don't always notice you need a tuneup until you start going up a hill.

Or maybe odd things, timing way off, bad vac leak, stuck choke, etc.
