All that works in my 84 CJ-7 with no ecu.

Your biggest issue is emission law. Be sure your state supports your upgrades and looks to maintain your ability to run that configuration for a while longer. Whatever you do, don't throw anything out, as I feel the future holds tightening "green new deal" standards that may force you to reinstall the original systems.

Many states exempt older vehicles from smog checks. If my CJ needs to meet smog, its going to get a 4.0L with OBD-II.

THIS,

Emissions standards are for the most part federal laws, I could see the feds requiring
testing across the nation at some point.

CA is working hard to get older vehicles off the road already.

I saw it happen in CA and prices of stock parts went through the roof.
air cleaner housings, exhaust manifolds and AIR injection parts etc.

Some parts like throttle positioners for air cooled VW's where impossible to find
and the cars couldn't couldn't be registered.

Whats over that next ridge?
