Does anyone know a good replacement for an OEM carburetor in a 1988 YJ?

I like my Weber. Top of my head idk the model but it is solid. Handled a shot ton and I put a k and n filter on with it. Only issue I have ran into is mounting the return springs.

Had a Weber 38/38? Not great on steep climbs... Floods out. Now using Motorcraft 2100 1.08 venturi. Same crappy mileage but does great off road!

I know Holley has quite the name when it comes to carburetors. I have no experience with any though.
Ehhh...Holly and off road are like putting sauerkraut on frosted mini wheats, just dont work. Sides Im pretty sure they are webers sold under the holly name. The Motorcraft is IMO a better option.

Modified the hell out the Weber on my last Jeep to minimize the carb-farting.
Extended bowl vent, extension tubes on the air bleed jets, etc.
But it worked pretty well after that.
