Yes you can. The only issue that you might run into is that the hei dist is a lot larger and it might not clear the firewall. Also, make sure you get one that'* not computer controlled. Easiest way to tell; if it has vacuum advance on the side, its not computer controlled.

Let'* see some pics of the Jeep!

one of the first things my dad did to his 70MC was to yank the points/condensor crap off(and store them, along with the original intake) and stuck a nice HEI unit on.

i'm sure if you took a look around the summit racing website, you would find everything you needed pretty quickly.
