ReconJack Really?! So, starting with the TJ model, since there's no inline fuel filter, these new in the tank filters are more or less good until the entire fuel sending unit itself goes bad (if it ever does)? Learn something new everyday. Thanks guys.

Jerry Bransford The fuel filter is located inside the fuel pressure regulator & it has a positively HUGE surface area, it is made out of a dense felt-like material & it was designed to never need replacing. The days of needing to replace or rinse out the old-fashioned fuel filters are over for most vehicles.

Atthehop Unless someone is dumping dirt in the fuel filler you should not need to change the filter. Gas pumped into your jeep is filtered at the pump contrary to the old days. In the old days the in ground tanks were steel and rusted, all the old tanks are long gone and so is all the crap. My last three vehicles ran 200k plus on the original fuel filters.

Fuel filter replacement ideas

I just got my 05 Rubicon, it's got 125K and I do not think the fuel filter has ever been changed. I was going to drop the tank, give the skid plate a good cleaning and coat of rustoleum, replace the filter, and put it back up. A few questions :

Is there anyway to get an inline fuel filter like the YJ's have? Dropping that damn plate and tank sucks.

If not, has anyone ever toyed with the idea of cutting the floor just above the whole fuel sending unit / filter assy and welding up a little trap door to access it all from the top without having to drop the tank? If so can anyone give some pics or pointers or ideas? Thanks
