72 cj 5 Carbeurator

My 72 cj5 with a 304 V8 stalls easily when going over small obstacles. It has the original Motorcraft Series 2100 2 barrel carb, which I have re-built. Does anyone have experience with a Holley 2 barrel on this motor? Weber doesn't make a replacement, or so I am told. Is the Holley better than the Motorcraft for 4 wheeling?

I am really happy with mine in my 79 CJ-7. I did experience some of what I thought were carb problems but they all cleared up when I switched to the Motorcraft electronic ignition and threw away the old points distributor.
