Autobest Fuel Pumps Take Us Into a New Age of Replacement Fuel Pump PartsWith todays high tech fuel systems, and fuel pumps such a critical piece of the equation, at Morris 4x4 Center, we now carry the Autobest fuel pumps for your Jeeps. In the old days, you merely had to open the hood, and with just a few bolts, you could have a mechanical pump changed in an hour or less. But the electric fuel pumps of today are located in the fuel tank (or in some cases, on the frame rail under the vehicle, such as on some trucks). Now you're talking a few hours while you disengage the fuel lines, and lower the fuel tank out and from under the vehicle. Not something you want to do twice! Especially in your drive way. ONE gallon of gasoline weights just over 6 pounds. Now multiply that times a fuel tank that might hold 25 gallons - now you're talking a fuel tank that weighs 150 pounds! Not an easy part to move around. Hopefully, IF your fuel pump goes out, you won't have just made a trip to the gas station! Now, if your fuel pump does go bad, we here at the Morris 4x4 Center have you covered with a line of new Autobest electronic fuel pumps. These are made as modules and kits, to give you al the parts you need to make the swap easier and faster. This means pumps with the right hookup ports, factory electrical connectors, and factory style filter socks.

When you order a fuel pump for a Wrangler Jeep, that's exactly what it's for.
Electronic Fuel Pumps vs ModulesWhen looking at pumps, there are two most common types of electronic fuel pumps: Modules and just the Pump by itself. The module style pump is shown just below. For the most part, these are usually self contained. Meaning, everything is all together as one unit. The pump, casing, electronics, and float, all together, pre-assembled. Sometimes they use an external filter screen (known as a "sock") while sometimes the screen filter in inside the plastic "barrel" (where you can't see it).
Once you've opened up the top of your fuel tank, you just have to swap the old unit for the new one, and hook up the fuel lines and wire connectors. On some fuel pump systems, you reuse the sending unit, and just change the pump itself. While these are normally less money, it means you have to do more installation work on your own, and sometimes change the wiring connections. You don't get a choice on which fuel pump to use, whatever is factory tends to be what you replace it with: a module only gets replaced with a module, etc. Below is a fuel pump kit on it's own:
Sometimes changing a fuel pump requires a fuel screen, also known as a "sock". If required (an only if) , these usually connect to the bottom of the fuel sender or module. Here is one example of what a sock can look like below:
