Carb swap for a Ford 2.8

My buddy picked up an '84 Bronco II for $500 bucks a while back, 2.8/5 speed. Our little group has kinda fixed it up to help him out because he's completely fucking clueless about anything but is willing to pay to fix it up. We want to clean up the engine compartment and get rid of the fucky stock setup so a carb swap is in order. What's out there to do this with? I couldn't come up with a Weber kit and being a 'Yota guy, I don't know where to look for parts for this rig. As of now it's bone stock except for an exhaust eventually (he ripped it off wheeling).

We were kinda trying to keep this on the cheap for him, sounds like a bad ass setup, but this thing is kind of a shit box, no sense dumping as much money in carb and intake into it as it was bought for.
