If you have the plastic tank. The hoses to the tank are a dealer only part. One end of the hose is molded. Do not use a regular hose and force it on.

You will need a new tank gasket too.

Please fill in your profile, I am not sure of what year you are working with.

Yes and no. There are different ID on the ends, but with some overlap and hose clamps, it's fine (2 years later or so, for me).

In addition to all the good suggestions above, when I dropped mine the sender was not working properly so I used a pencil eraser to burnish the sector. After that the resistance was linear as I swept the float through its range.

There isn't much left of my Jeep that I haven't "adjusted" in some way, but the access hatch to the fuel pump is one of my favorites. It just sits there, doesn't really do anything, but when something fuel related goes wrong, it's a Godsend.
