Picked up the CJ after having ORI install the Holley Sniper kit.

Awesome, if you have throttle tip in, I can give a pointer.  And if you want to set the RPM range to make the needle sweep actually matter, you can.  I set the max number to 20 instead of 80.  Liked it much better.  Good luck with it.  I liked mine a lot.
Gonna be honest Dain, this is all new to me. I'll have to meet up with you one weekend and you can show me what's what.

All that matters right now is that it starts easily and when Kate finally got behind the wheel and pressed the pedal she grinned ear to ear and said; oh, it does have a V8.

I bet that v8 is nice.  Definitely bring it by.  The Holley sniper FB group has a lot of helpful people too.  Despite a ton of haters.  I got mine running perfect for me.  No crazy tuning.  Got my display set up nicely too.  I miss it.  Loved having my temp on the display digitally rather than a sweeping needle on the dash.

I was a bit underwhelmed with the V8 (especially considering it's the 401) until today with the sniper. I mean its still not a hot rod but its waaaaay better.

Spent about 30 minutes after your first reply messing with the display, so many options! And yes to the temp display. The factory gauge doesn't even work on this thing.

Of course it doesn’t  it is a CJ. 

Do you have a stock tach?  I loved having the one on the display of the sniper.  Once I set the numbers right.  I can’t remember if the top being 50 or 60 was the right one. But whatever it was made each big hash equal to 10.  That was the only way it was accurate

No stock tach so nothing to compare it to but it's a number I didn't have before.

Heat kind of works, its not blowing cold air but its not really hot.

And no, its just an M8 but at least its a Warn.

I have thought about getting an 8274 for mine.  Maybe find an old one that needs help and restore it for fun.

Drove the 3a to Wendy’s to grab some lunch.  Man is it cold outside. And used my HF “drink holder”.

I've been wanting to do the same thing. Good luck finding one for a decent price though. They're expensive as hell
