Sometimes it just helps us to see your setup, fuel lines, and vacuum lines, maybe something will stick out like a sore thumb.

After following all suggestions I found a thread detailing the same problem

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/25...ation-1079745/

Picture for setting the float levels:

Was a float bowl level issue. A little bending of the tab to specs and BAM! She runs like a top! Thanks for all the help and suggestions. I will be removing the FPR as it was starving the carb after the floats were adjusted. Hope this thread will help someone in the future with the same issues...

Karl,

Thanks for the update. Too many of these threads fizzle away with no resolve.
