    Question Carb & Ignition upgrade... 76 CJ5

    Hello- I need some good advice/recommendations on my 1976 CJ5 restoration project as I begin to close in on things.





    This jeep is pretty much bone stock and runs pretty good! Would like to upgrade the Carburetor and get a cleaner/better ignition put in it.










    Let me clarify- this is not a performance build and will not see any crazy wall climbing activity- just looking for a moderate reliable priced set up that will take things to the next level.

    Thanks in advance for thoughts on what I should be looking at so I can start to plan things out.

    Thanks!

    Where you live I would swap out for fuel injection and not mess around with rebuilding the carb.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
