I'd think it would be difficult. The C101 and C104 frame width is the same as the '75 and earlier CJ-5 and CJ-6. The Jeepsters have outboarded rear springs (accommodated by their square rear body...

The parts book shows a different pump for a '71 (4488077) and a '72 (3213992).

I would guess that it's the same as the pump for an AMC car with the 360, and the listing makers just don't have a...

He says module replaced 3 times, so I concluded it's Prestolite. He also mentions points distributor earlier in this post.

I can't reconcile these statements.

It's Prestolite now. It's a 258. Skip White does not list a distributor for the 258.

The distributor he linked above is ca $70. There's also a Jegs house-brand for about $90. Then you step up to...

Yes. Available with the 258 in some models. In a Cherokee, I think you'd be more likely to see it in an agency vehicle. A '74 J10 with a 258 only came with 4.09s.

It was the overarching trend when...

Front axle will have a tag unless it was removed. Rear axle should have an axle code, though I'm not sure how to read it. Supposedly it's stamped into the cover mounting flange. If you get the code,...

Nope, no change in front axle.

The open knuckle axles are also much lower maintenance and more durable. Plus you'll improve your turning radius.
