I am doing my intake manifold gasket tomorrow and after research it says I need to remove the pressure from the fuel lines before disconnecting.
I have read that you should pull the fuel pump relay and run it till it stalls.

Could someone let me know if this is correct, and also where the fuel pump relay is located.

Any input is appreciated

There’s a schrader valve (looks like a tire valve stem core) on the fuel rail. Put a rag over it when the engine is cold and push the center of tge valve in slightly. Very little fuel will come out.
Alternative method is to pull the fuse for the fuel pump and try to start the Jeep. That will exhaust any remaining pressure.

I read that it helps relieve some of the pressure. Don’t know if it really helps but I couldn’t find the schrader valve so I did this instead.

Ultimately- You did okay....
There should be zero pressure in the fuel tank just FYI.
Until now, I was unaware that those cheap SOBs at FCA apparently left off the pressure ports on the fuel rails of the 3.8 and 3.6 !!!! :jawdrop:
