Not to mention you have to drop the gas tank to even get to it, it is contained inside the fuel pressure regulator & is upstream from the fuel pump. There is a mesh screen filter downstream from the fuel pump.
You're right, I must have been thinking of the YJ fuel filter. I comppletely forgot they used the in tank filter in the TJ's. Now that I'm thinking about it, and IIRC that whole unit is non serviceable, and you have to change the pump, sending unit and filter all together.
