Gas filler hose

1993 has bad fill hose, local dealer says not made anymore, can't tell me if any other hose made on this planet will fit. What's the word boys and girls, what will work for this? I know I can take what left of it to local auto part store and get blank stare from parts man, was just hoping to at least have a direction to go.

By the way went to local auction out bid every other idiot for a Wrangler. So far Replaced, front and rear ends (rear was locked up) front was just welded to the springs and Ubolts ???. both drive shafts were junk. Front springs, steering column, engine and dash wiring harnesses (should have seen that rats nest) Just wanted to let you all know I'm not afraid of a challenge!

Hey, welcome to JF.

Have you tried Morris 4x4. discount jeep parts, or Quadratec? Between those three I usually find any parts I'm looking for.

Believe it or not my local NAPA auto parts can find stuff that the dealer doesn't even know about. Might want to look into them.

Congrats on the wrangler and welcome !

Collins brothers has a jeep junkyard, I'm sure they would have it, but used.

I bought one of these to replace my cracked one, a little pricey for a piece of rubber but it does the trick

http://www.quadratec.com/products/51308_06.htm

EDIT: I found it here for a few bucks cheaper

Not a bad deal.

There are two problems with these hoses. The ends are not the same size and it make too sharp a bend to just curve it with normal hose and not have it kink.

When I replaced mine I used some rubber hose on each end and a 3/4 copper elbow in the middle. Later, I did the TJ side filler mod which makes the hoses a straight shot to the tank. I found some hose at ace hardware that was soft enough to fit on both ends with a little boiling water to help stretch it.

The ones I got from MTS fit Jeep's sh*tty design perfectly. They have different sized ends and bend 90 degrees just like the are supposed to...

I agree. I use MTS for all of my fuel pump & fuel tank needs for whatever Jeep that comes in my shop that needs these items.

High quality products, low prices, great service. Thumbs up all around for www.mtscompany.com
