its an ignition upgrade using parts for other vehicles that fixes some of the shortcomings of AMC's ignition design...in a nutshell

1985 CJ7 Project
Phase One : 5.3L Vortec/4L60E, Moser axles for AMC20, Twin Stick'd Dana300 - Completed
Phase Two: Bedliner, Rollcage, Seats, BESRK Rear Bumper w/ tire swing, Soft Top, and a few other goodies - Mostly Complete
Phase Three: Waggy 44 front, Scout D44 Rear, 4.56's, ARB's (F/R) SOA with YJ Springs, 35x12.50x15 BFG MT - Not Even Close to beginning

Also a mostly rust-free 1970 Scout 800A That I'll get to start working on someday...

Yep that was what I was looking for thanks alot
One more question is it worth the effort after the teamrush upgrade to install a MSD box the type that hooks to the coil and battery and this model is not tied into the ing. module for the jeep. FYI i already have an Accel coil and wires

YES! I is every bit worth doing this upgrade with a CDI box. I see that you have an AMC 360 in your CJ. I'm running a 304 in mine and the difference is mind blowing. No more cold starts, it actually idles on its own, more power, better gas millage. And that only a few that I have noticed since doing this upgrade.

As you know, JeepHammer is the man to go to about and particular questions that you may have on this subject.

Here are the parts that I used for my upgrade which will work on your 360. You should already have a Duraspark dizzy in your CJ.
