Well the barb on the fuel output is cracked resulting in a leak/spray.

Aftermarket fuel pump modules at any parts stores do not allow you to split the module and access the fuel pump directly.. Trying to find a fuel pump module for a factory TJ, anyone know of any?

I never realized until now you could replace just FPR. Going to be ordering one and going this route. Thanks. It was sending fuel back just had a crack between barb and FPR housing.

Well replaced FPR and the new fuel pump was still bad, pulled that out again and ordered a new Walboro 255 and finally got that in there last night. Picked up some used fenders for $100, some day they will get paint but for now I'm keeping the bumblebee paint. Back seat installed. Hood pins fixed and a short test drive later and she's on the trailer ready for Jeep Invasion!

Been a hell of a week keeping my tow rig running with lots of repairs so didn't get everything dialed quite as good as I want but should work for what it is. I did flip a car hauler for a profit and got a free 9k HF winch out of the deal, that is now on the jeep.

Leaving tomorrow at 4 from Coldwater I'll be staying in the state park if anyone is around come say hi and if we aren't on the sand maybe have a beer.

Weekend was a blast. Weather was awful for tent camping but we stayed dry and made the most of it. Jeeo had some issues but that's to be expected for the first time out. The GF and my first camping and wheeling trip together and I was very impressed.

Had a no start issue swapped some relays and she fired up so a quick trip to Klotz for a replacement and we were rolling again. Blew a coolant line which was fixed after a tow to camp. Broke my rear trakcbar bracket that was boogered on there by the P.O. Also have a leaky axle seal on passenger side. Also struggled with power at the top end.

Dragged it to my buddy Jeremy's tonight and we added two gussets to the trakcbar bracket and re-welded it. Found out fuel pump is only pulling 45 psi or so compared to the 60+ it should be. Another trip to parts store tomorrow to pick up new fuel pressure regulator and vacuum hose for the fuel rail. Hoping that fixes things cause I'm headed back up to Silver Lake Thursday through Dunday with a group of 30 people or so. Here's some recap pics and some pics of the damage.

Broke a ton of parts on the tow rig last weekend driving up there. Lots to fix between the truck and jeep. Front axle was on fire. Need to rewire all accessories on the jeep and figure out some fuel delivery issues. Truck will be getting a new transfer case and a 60 front and another rear axle with 4.10 gears in both from my old truck.
