FreezerJeep Glad to hear its fixed. I heard that if you always keep your fuel low (say usually around a 1/4 tank) that it can cause your pump to wear faster cause the gas around it helps keep it cool.

Any truth to this?

Yozho Question, not necessarily for the OP.

To test if the MAF is bad can't you just unplug it?

SilverSport Glad your Jeep is feeling better.

According to Chrysler, this was not uncommon to find crud in new tanks because they often sat for months uncovered before shipped for assembly. Loved that ole girl, but my JK has claimed my heart now.
They inspected the tank thoroughly and had no explanation for the faulty fuel pump. They said the tank and fuel were perfectly clean. I guess I am the unlucky one who got a faulty fuel pump.

They said they will inspect the tank and everything else while the tank is dropped to eliminate any other possible problems. SO, I should know by the end of the day tomorrow if the fuel pump was the problem. Either way, I am getting a new fuel pump at their expense.

Well that's good. Hopefully they figure it out.
