Changing Fuel Pump Assembly Soon - Best Brand/How To's?

2002 4.0L TJ

Going to be changing my Fuel Pump Assembly soon, was wondering what brand people have had luck with. I work at a parts store and can get an Airtex Fuel Pump Module Assembly for cheaper than anywhere else due to discount but its not necessarily the price Im concerned about, I just want something good that will work, and last me a long time.

Also I have never done this job before but I am assuming it is not that difficult, anything I should be aware of and extra tools I might need? Thanks

I would recommend NOT getting the Airtex. I put one in my daughter's jeep ( it was the only one available that day and I needed to get it done then) It always took several seconds to start so I figured the pressure regulator was bad but she was leaving town so I couldn't take it back. Less than a year later it died and left her stranded.

Stay away from airtex. It is a guaranteed problem. I always ask the parts people which brand they have had the best luck with. They don't want a mad customer with a defective pump.

Are you familiar with a practice known as "spiffing?" "Parts people" tend to have the best luck with the brands that provide the best spiff.

I can't recomend the Airtex I put one in My 97 TJ Sport & it did work but took a couple of trys to start 8 months old with out warning it just quit leaving Me in the middle of a busy 4 lane highway,I replaced it with a Bosch from Carquest & when I opened the box the pump had a O.E. Mopar Tag on the wiring, So far so good Jeep starts right ,My experience with Airtex is almost exactly like Shoes experience in his post above.
