My fuel pump quit this winter, in my 94 ZJ. I had to hacksaw the gas tank hanger bolts off, because NJ spreads a lot of salt on the roads. I paid $ 309 at a local parts store.
1- Hand-pump the gas out of the tank.
2- Jack the rear up a little for better access when dropping the tank
3- Loosen the gas fill & vent line from under the rear driverís side fender.
4- Support bottom of gas tank with another jack
5- Saw off gas tank hanger bolts. I used a hacksaw blade in my hand with a glove. There is no room to saw with the hacksaw blade in its frame/holder. (buy two new bolts first)
6- Remove the three gas lines now, because you do not want any gas vapors while sawing the hanger bolts. Disconnect electrical harness.
7- Drop tank, remove crappy pump & completely wipe in inwards out with several rags & use some gas to clean it even more.
