Cj5 stalling out. Please help.

My 72 cj5, stock amc 304, double carb, 3 sp tranny, keeps stalling out after full throttle in 3rd gear. I'm thinking it's time for a carb rebuild, hoping it's not the tranny. Any suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated.

First thing i would check is the gas cap. I would run with it open, it is supposed to be a vented cap i believe. maybe it has failed or is wrong.

Second i would check the air filter for dirt. That got me once, no power in top end at all. Man that air filter was Dirty.

And 3rd i would replace the gas filter if it is more than 6 months old.
