I cut a slice out of the ring gasket this last time I installed the tank. I too have the long crank before it starts. I have no crimped lines or hoses.

Is that pressure regulator an in line model, or does it mount in the tank, or on the motor? I have no issues once the Jeep is running, but it does seem like the pump needs to be primed before it turns over.

That the issue I have it losses its prime. The regulator/filter is on the top of the fuel pump. The round thing with the metal strap covering it

I meant the one from the link that was posted. The Chevy one...

Where would that mount?

The Chevy part number is for the fuel filer hose. My tank overflows when I fill it up

Did anyone else call Pure Jeep to tell them theirs did not fit? When I called they acted like I was crazy and they have never had this problem before and now there are 4 of us with the exact same problem.

I did not call them. I may do that though and give them a heads up. If they are as crappy to deal with as everyone says, I will advertise against their products from now on.

On another note, my jeep is starting fine right now. A tad longer than a normal start, but it is bearable. I will probably just leave it alone and drive it and see if the problem worsens.

My opinion is to not waste time and money on this and to buy a fuel cell.

Fuel cell is not an option for me. I need to retain the back seat and cargo area and there is no chance of passing inspection with a comp cut anyway (to justify a fuel cell) so Genright stretch corners and 5" in back is as far as I can go.

Just trying to determine if the Genright tank is worth the extra $175 over the PJ.

What rear axle do you have?

Edit: never mind, you should be fine.

Comp cuts are legal in Pa, just need to have a flare cover tire at the top is all. Just wanted to pass that on.

It's not even about a comp cut, it's just nice to have the extra room. After not fighting my tank to get to everything in the rear to work on it I would gladly sacrifice my back seats and/or cargo area. I currently do not have seats, and have a tuffy trunk in my cargo area and my cell where the rear seats would be.

If I were to redo my Pure Jeep tank, I would buy the RCI 2162b fuel cell and have a local fab shop cut and weld a dimple into it. Then I would mount it in the factory location with a steel skid holding it up. It would require some fabrication, but I think the overall products would be better. I would rather not mount mine in the tub to have more storage and piece of mind. This would give you more clearance at the axle depending on how you modify the cell (my Ford 8.8 is close to hitting because its offset diff). It would not hang down as low as the Pure Jeep tank because the 2162 is about 3" shorter in height compared to the Pure Jeep. I am thinking about selling mine and doing this anyway.

Correction I would use this cell, http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-RCI-17-G...a91848&vxp=mtr, because it is only 7"deep and has the filler hole in a much better location. You would have to cut the whole front piece off and make it short and add the dimple, but you are already modifying it, so whats a little more work.

EDIT: forgot that this would be too short for factory fuel pump. Will not work.
