What is a good aftermarket fuel pump
 
What is a good aftermarket fuel pump as my pump started acting weird and float level started acting up today and i need to replace the pump?

I would recommend the whole unit ( filter, pump, and sender ) from the dealer. I've heard most aftermarket units are garbage.

X2 what urd said. But some people swear by Bosch which according to some is the OE supplier now.

You talkin' bout me coralman? LOL, and yeah I'm a firm believer in Bosch fuel pump modules while being told they build/supply them to Mopar. I've been running mine for about a year in my 96 4.0 and it's worked flawlessly while being super quiet. Believe dusterdude also installed one and happy with it along with the cost.

I paid $224 on Amazon and don't think you can beat the below deal at $120 for a new "Bosch 67649 Fuel Pump Module for 97-98 Jeeps" w/free shipping from ebay. This is a reputable vendor others here have used. Look at the top of the 2nd page of the compatibility chart in the link and you'll see your 97 4.0 ZJ listed. Good luck.

BTW, not sure if they still come w/the tank seal but mine did so took the one back to the dealer and got my $15 back.

Thanks for the listing. I do appreciate all the input that was given as i am a noobie to the whole jeep world.

Bosch is the OEM supplier (maybe not originally, but at least now) ... the replacement pump I purchased had Bosch labels and Chrysler/Mopar part numbers on it.

No problem and ask if you have any questions. If purchasing from ebay, and you haven't before, you'll need to open a free account along with a free paypal account. I did both at the same time.

Thanks for verifying!

just watch out for knock offs also, I have read about them on other forums. I would just go with the dealer full pump setup to be safe.

You just have to use common sense. Look at the prices, and you'll see that given some brands of pump cost $99 and others cost $199, there's probably going to be a quality difference.

As has been said, the Bosch one is the OEM part. I'd buy it from that eBay vendor or RockAuto. No way I'd pay the extra sh*tload of cash on top of that just to get it from the dealer in a Mopar box.

I recently replaced my fuel pump with a Bosch and it seems much quieter than the original. I believe I payed $110 or something like that for just the pump at Advance.

You mean $300 plus isn't reasonable :) I understand what you mean. I had no idea Bosch is the same as mopar OE in relation. Good to know when I replace mine in the future.

Wouldn't doubt there are knock-offs out there and best to check the seller/vendor ratings if buying from ebay to make sure they're reputable. That "e-herko" who sells the real deal Bosch fuel pump assemblies has been around since 2009, has a 5 star 99.5% feedback rating, but have no idea how they can sell those now OE fuel pump assemblies at such a low price. Wish I would have found them before I paid $100 more for mine from Amazon.

Another thing to keep in mind is Chrysler outsources their parts and you won't see a Mopar OE parts factory for these ZJ's. Yeah, they often have higher quality parts they stand behind, you're going to pay the price, and a better deal to buy the manufactured brand who makes them for Mopar if you can find it.

I've made friends with a guy, known for 10 years, who runs the parts department at the local dealer. He gives me a wholesale discount but will tell me outright if I need to go somewhere else if their part is ridiculously high. Good example is a rear door lock actuator/assembly for $120 and I'll be going to the jy. After being on my 3rd PCM I asked him last year how much a new Mopar PCM was for my 96 and he said there's no such thing these ZJ's are so old. They outsource them for rebuild and that's all you can buy.
