4.2 opinions
Well seems so both my Cherokees are gonna take a lot of fixing and building wanting something to go cure the off road need, found a few nice yjs but they have the 4.2 in them, what are your personal experiences and reviews on the 4.2s? Be nice to have a topless jeep kinda summer

RE: 4.2 opinions
I think a lot of the 4.2's had carbs on them. Some of them can be a bit finicky but I had a friend that has one and daily drives it with no problems. I think it depends on what kind of shape it's in and how well it's been maintained.

RE: 4.2 opinions
My first jeep was a yj with 4.2 ,thay have a ton of emissions crap and there all carbs on 4.2 none of them came with fuel injection but with that said mine ran very well stock with the carter 2 barrel 200 cfm thay came with ,I ended up doing a 4.0 HO head swap with tube header and accel coil upgrade and ford male style distributor cap and rotor upgrade then ported the intake manifold and top it off with a weber redline carb 400cfm ,was a very torquey motor but really needed a much bigger cam than the stock 4.2 cam to really come alive ,

TJs are getting cheap.
1989 YJ on 42’s for playing, 2005 LJ Rubicon for family wheeling, 20xx Ultra 4 buggy for dreaming and leaning on.
