Best brand fuel pump/sender 98 wrangler

I have a 98 wrangler with 19 gallon tank. My sender reads only to 1/2 tank. I need to replace the unit. I read Airtex is low end quality. Bosch is OEM ? ChaddG suggested a brand/premium. I want the best I can get that is most reliable, since my wife also drives it. Any replies are appreciated.

OE/Mopar. Mopar parts | Dodge parts | Chryler parts | Jeep parts | WeRMopar.com discounts Mopar parts, perhaps your local dealer's parts department will price match or get low enough to their price to make it worth your while to buy it locally.

If it's an electrical part I only buy from the dealer.

Looking at a Bosch complete unit # 67655. It has Mopar emblem stamped on unit and wire connector-so I believe this is the OEM for that part. I will call dealer tomorrow. Advance auto parts sells it for $ 279.00 same bosch part #. Amazon $201.00 new. If Dodge/Jeep dealer match Advance price-maybe OK. I don't mind paying some additional-but if the Dodge/Jeep dealer says $300 + don't like eyes poked, Found the Spectra # SP7115M cheaper yet at $ 239.00 at Advance and $ 148.00/Amazon. Will see tomorrow. My jeep runs good-just sending unit won't read below 1/2 tank-at 83K miles, you would think the OEM part (Bosch) would last longer. Got me thinking now.....

Checked the online discount mopar/Jeep parts store$ 359.00- but $40.00 exchange. I do see that the sending unit along can be purchased. However if I am going to drop the tank-I want to install a whole new unit,pump and all. Funny thing the price for the 19 gal unit is cheaper in Bosch and Spectra at Advance and online and the 15 gallon unit is higher. Just the opposite with Mopar discount parts. Will check local dealer tomorrow. Thanks for responses.

Just out of curiosity, does the gauge ever show below 1/2 tank? I'd do an actuator test on the instrument cluster just to make sure it's not something going on there.

With the key off, press and hold the trip meter reset knob while turning the key to the RUN position. Release the knob and the cluster will go through a diagnostic. All the gauge and indicator lights will be tested. Pay attention to the fuel gauge when it's being tested. It should swing through its full range of motion. At the end of the test, the odometer will display any errors before returning to the mileage.

If it's original your Mopar pump is 15 years old, I wouldn't call that a premature failure. Pretty safe bet that Spectra unit your considering won't last 15 years. I know the Mopar unit is expensive but you will thank yourself in the long run.

X2 exactly, well said.

I bought the Bosch and it fixed my slow to start crank and my fuel gauge diving an incorrect reading. NAPA gave me the best price and was supposedly OEM, least that's what the paperwork inside the box said, and the parts catalog from NAPA, and a couple others.

I agree with everyone, electrical parts come from the dealer. When I bought mine, the dealer advised a 2 month national back order.

Thanks for the replies. I will check the diagnostics and make sure the gauges work correctly before buying a sender/pump. I did check Dodge/Jeep dealer today...$ 530.00 with $ 40.00 core return. Wow.
the OEM is Bosch and I found new for $ 248.00. If My gauges check out I will buy this and install it . i understand mark up BUT-dealer is pretty greedy with that much mark-up. I even asked for any discounts-he said no, sorry. isn't that special !.

The Mopar parts | Dodge parts | Chryler parts | Jeep parts | WeRMopar.com website I gave you above has the OEM fuel pump, fuel filter, and fuel pressure regulator for $287. I suggested in that post #2 that you use that discounted online pricing to get your dealer to discount their pricing. They normally won't if you just politely ask them to, but they usually will when you show them what you can buy the exact OE Mopar part for from elsewhere. Many people mention how they got their local dealer to give a more reasonable price when they are shown better pricing in printed form. And I'm not convinced that Bosch is the actual OE manufacturer... OE Replacement doesn't necessarily mean it is the actual OE brand-name part.

Thanks Jerry . The OEM part at the dealer is Bosch with a Mopar emblem stamp on the part itself and on the electrical connector. If the one from local parts house is same I am going to buy it. I appreciate the discount online Mopar/Jeep website. Local parts house is giving me a very good discount because (1) they usually do, probably because I have bought lots of stuff there over the last 25+ yrs. I will actuall see it next week.

I got My Bosch Pump Assembly from Carquest & It had The Mopar Tag on it so I believe it's the same as O.E. It replaced a 8 month old Airtex Unit that left Me in the middle of a busy road!
