Welcome to the forum!

First off, if you have a Prestolite ignition, (Check for plastic vacuum advance canister on the distributor), there is NO upgrade available.
Prestolite was factory from '74 to '77 on CJ's with both I-6 and V-8 engines.

If you have an aluminum housing on a 'Breaker Points' distributor, it's a Delco Remy distributor, and any 'Electronic Conversion' kit that will work for a Camaro will work for you.
If you do it yourself, you are looking at $15 in off the shelf parts.
If you buy the conversion kit, you are looking at $60 to $100.

Here is how I did mine,

MSD makes a 'Cap-A-Dapt' that will give you the large Ford type cap, better rotor, and will accept good plug wires.
Cap, rotor and plug wires will run you about $100.

What I would do if I were you,
For around $60 you can get a Jeep/Motorcraft distributor reman from the parts stores.
I would put the large cap, rotor and good plug wires on it,

And I would use a CDI (Capacitive Discharge Ignition) module to trigger a factory style coil...

Any questions?
