I had a similar issue (starving for gas). And thought it was a clogged filter. Everything else seemed ok. When I crawled under to get to the filter, I noticed that the line out from the filter was kinked, and a nearby wire harness was knocked out of its retaining hook. I do all the work on it, so I know it was not there before. I guess when I drove over some gravel one rock flung the right way and knocked the harness out and hit the gas line. Spliced it with fuel injection grade hose and works fine.
No fuelmis not going to the rail and I cant hear the pump come on. I will try the relay replacement.
Keep us updated... You can just switch your starter relay with your fuel pump relay and see if the pump primes and then if the Jeep cranks. If the fuel pump primes and your Jeep doesn't crank anymore then you know you have a bad relay, at least.
At the filter, if the connections are not tight, they can do the no-fuel delivery issue,...I made this mistake.
Next question, will it run with starting fluid sprayed down the intake? (Just to be certain it WILL run.)
