Hi! You will need to get the correct carb for your jeep for the "fording
kit" to be attached and be able to use it. the carb is a sealed system
from the air cleaner to the carb. Plus you would need the correct Plugs
and wires. You would also have to have the venting system complete, as
well as the correct gas cap and bell housing plug. You also would need
the correct exhaust system going to the correct place on the jeep for
the rear snorkel to attach. I would suggest you get used to very minor
oil leaks from under jeep. Every thing in mine was rebuilt by pros, but
the drips of oil can drive you crazy looking to solve them.
