Yeah, cats are never in junkyards. Worth more as scrap for the metals, and maybe also some EPA regs there.

Just pick up a cheap high flow cat online and have a local shop weld it in. IMS they...

The only vacuum line that can be the wrong size is the one to the MAP sensor. Too large there and the intake manifold internal pressure wave harmonics can resonate in the line and cause weird MAP...

Agree with the above. I welded my knuckles during a routine brake job. I don't think it even took 45 minutes. Fired up the MIG, blasted in some new metal, filed it down (I prefer files for that type...

Here's my thinking FWIW. I'm assuming you have the 4.0 because you keep saying the trans is a 42RE.

To convert to a carb is going to take at a minimum:

New intake - $500
New carb - $400

IMS on the 96-98 the entire dash runs through the PCM as well. So you'll have no dash. Can't even rig the speedo since it's electronically driven, no cable.

You might want to see if you can find another ZJ to compare with. It looks to me like the frame is bent right there.

Just going by memory from my rebuild and Googling info. A good guess would be that they are #10-24 machine screws about 0.55 inches long. Tightening torque is 35 in/lbs. As mentioned before you can...

That's the early valve cover. The 93 models for sure and maybe some 94s (judging by your ZJ) had the twist in style breather and CCV elbows. They are better in my opinion since there is no fat rubber...

Sounds right if you need to be able to unbox and bolt on. If you have a tad bit of skill you can drill and fixture injector bungs in one of the other carb intakes. I've done it with a cheap $70...

I'll give my standard input on this type of thread.

Decide what engine you want first: horsepower, torque, RPM range, etc. Then set a firm budget.

Pick heads that support the power goal, a...

I would do it there, but I've done it a couple times already. It only takes 30 minutes or so, and doesn't take a lot of tools.

You have to remove the distributor. Take the gear off. Then slide the shaft up out the top to replace the pickup. A whole new distributor will cost you only a few dollars more on RockAuto and is what...

Depends on what's wrong with your older engine. Nothing in a can is ever going to fix worn out rings or bearings. My experience is that nothing in a can will free stuck rings either. Probably not...

Not sure if the later models have the same wiring as my old 93, but I had a similar issue on mine. It turned out that Jeep had made a factory splice to split the power wire to the two bulbs. It's a...

All the ZJs came factory filled with R-134. R-134 is available without a license.

I suspect that if the OP charges that system (designed for R-134 and full of PAG oil) with some R12 substitute,...

I had a MSD Streetfire box on my 93. Felt like it picked up a little part throttle response. I used adapter harness 8889 (https://www.summitracing.com/parts/msd-8889) so it was a splice free install....
