Fuel leak!!
 
might have had too much fun this past weekend, was driving around at 70-75mph!! Last night jeep was leaking fuel from the rear passenger side, dripping actually. I couldn't really see where the leak is, could it be a valve or the tank itself???

Another expensive fix I guess :(

With an 88 you have a rollover valve in the passenger side rear corner of the tub. Pull the dust shield out and look up with a flashlight and you will see the lines and a round valve in a bracket. Line is broke or the valve is bad.

I'm having this same problem, it sounded like you were describing my jeep. Need to figure this out also

I had a simlair problem where a mouse had eaten away the rubber tube in between the valves.
And heres a link for the valves, 10 bucks a piece

Good news, I just called my local Jeep dealership....and they were able to get me the parts. Remember, you need two parts
1. Roll over valve (also called vent valve sometimes) -$12 - 2 week delivery
2. Rubber connector - $11.50 - 2 day delivery

Lady at the dealership found them on a paper catalogue first. She said it is easier than looking for it on her computer. Also, make sure you tell them this does not fit "on" the gas tank, but it is mounted at rear corner on passenger side.
