kbwwolf Technology ain't always "progress".

lono100 you shouldve seen what we had to go through with our mini cooper. german engineering is for rich people who dont care to try to fix anything themselves and can afford to be constantly dropping their car off at the dealership and not needing to look at the bill.

There is more efficient filtering/ more efficient pressured delivery and better heat dissipation, when submerged in the tank-

It has nothing to do with charging more for the pump troubleshooting--it's for increase fuel mileage/delivery/efficiency--thats just the way it is !

It ain't my fault-

And as Paul Harvey would say "and that's the rest of the story"

Glad to see you back Jimbo and in "fine-form" as usual

JIMBOX Yeah, I know this is what happens as we got up the ladder of technology-

Products are quicker/better/effecient/cheaper to produce--all for the manufacturing "COMPANYS", but-

Look how much it costs US to fix/troubleshoot/replace-

There ain't no reason forit---ti's just the wy we doit !

lono100 so that's good news for my cb install, but not good news if that pump goes out!

kbwwolf Huh. Learn something new every day. Figured there was a good reason, but never knew what it might be.

Thanks for the info, Jimbo!

Dragonscape Like all new cars and trucks: its in the tank so the stealership can charge more for replacing it; and joe average doing work in his driveway can't. So what used to be a $50 repair is now $1200, just don't ask how I know

where is the fuel pump location on the JK's?

hey all, i was wondering where the fuel pump location is exactly on the JK's. im planning on installing a CB radio, and i woul like to keep the PL-259 cable as far away from the pump to avoid interference. if anyone knows, can you drop some knowledge on me!?
