A fuel pump out of a Cherokee is not going to fit in a yj tank. Most of these pumps will put out over 75psi you will still need to regulate that to 40 to 45 psi. The part that you are missing will still be the regulator.
If you look you should have a heavy wire that goes to the fan in the xj wiring harness. All you have to do is find the one coming out of the bulkhead connector and hook the two together. Plug that to the fan.

dodger...

on the heater blower... can you go into a little more detail...

my wiring diagrams in my chiltons and haynes don't match my heater switch...

i have 12v at the white wire on the switch but it won't give any to the blower... not sure thats even the wire that needs power...

i got the wiper strightened out...

and what am i supposed to do about a fuel pump? if i can't use one out of a cherokee

after talking to you on the phone (thanks again by the way) i decided the best thing to do would be to get a regulated fuel rail... and a regular 40psi pump and sending unit out of a cherokee seeing as they would both push the same psi and flow rate

ok from the switch if you look over to the passenger side you will where you have about 3 or 4 wires going into the heater box above the vent door that you can see.
If you get a regulated fuel rail then find a pump out yj that will fit into your gas tank.

Well then since you all ready have a fuel pump from a xj then figure out where your pickup for the tank is now. Then do some cutting of the pickup tube install the xj pump in there leaving enough room for the pickup sock and run a wire for the pump out of the top to power it. you could use a machine screw and insulate it from the cover to connect it to. Use the sending unit ground and a hose clamp or 2 to hold it in place.
to look like this PartsTrain.com - Hard to Find Auto Parts and Truck Parts -

ok ... thanks to everyone especially dodger for all the help....

still not done but getting there

i figured out the heater, i didn't have te blower plugged up underneath the battery tray, it's now tied in and working great.

dodger, not to question you... but i have done some reading and in 1988 you could get a 15 or 20 gallon tank. in 1990, jeep offered the 15 and 20 gallon tank option again but this time, it was the exact same tank in both aplications, with the exception of a longer vent hose to cut the fuel flow off at 15 gallons, meaning you could cut your vent hose and achieve 20 gallons...

if a 20 gallon tank will fit , and the cherokee tank is the same size meaning length, width, and height... with the only differance being the front mounted fuel pump why will it not work ?

I not sure but if I remember correct the xj tank is flatter then the yj. Now if you have your out look at it is a plastic tank or steel? The plastic tanks are what are called 20 gal tanks that have a longer fill and vent tubes in them to make them 15 gal tanks easy to modify them to 20 gals. measure your tank before buying an xj tank.

ok so i drove 210 miles today to get the only pum within 250 miles... i have it in and have spliced the green/white stripe wire from the fuel pump relay into my orange wire going to the pump... nothing... am i forgetting something, are there any other wires at the tank that need to be corrected... like the ground ?

check engine light works perfectly too, great idea, and thanks dodger for talking me into it, took maybe 5 minutes to splice in and install
