That's a 4WD Hardware body. I hope to paint it red next summer. The GM HEI and Weber are in the picture, too.

I thought all jeep engines were required to be brown and rusty. Nice job, looks like new. Must have taken a long time to complete.

Bought the piece of junk in October, 1998. Worked on it and froze my a$$ off all winter. Was driving it around the property in May, 1999.

It will never be completed.

Thats It! I gotta do the GM HEI ignition to mine. Does it run as good as it looks?

Looks Gooooood.
besides the reliability of a GM HEI, have you noticed any other pros/cons, is there anything you would do different if you did it again?

Loosenut,
Can HEI work with 4.0 with EFI or I should not bother with it?

Thanks,

Loose, from henceforth you shall be known as Mr. Clean. Very good looking setup!

In contrast have a look at mine with it's rats nest of wires & hoses. I no longer have the 258 in the Jeep but you can see the old Howell TBI and HEI in there.
