Bosch was/ is the OEM manufacturer, and they seem to last anywhere between 10-20 years - or more.

From an XJ point of view the general consensus seems to be Bosch which is also OEM in an XJ also.
Hopefully finding one for a ZJ will not be hard.
Threads in the XJ section pop up from time to time about not being able to find a Bosch one.
Asking what to use in its place.
So much so that when a brand new Mopar fuel pump for my XJ popped up on Craigslist for $150
local to me I went and snapped it up for "stock". LOL.

Well, I suppose it depends on how much you enjoy dropping your gas tank. Most don't find it that much fun so they opt for Mopar or Bosch, which is the OEM. They are more money, but it's well worth it, IMHO. Remember this unit contains the pressure regulator, filter, and sender, not just a pump.

I only want to do the job every 15-20 years, not every 2-5, which may be about what you get from other brands. That's just a guess, but the early failure rate seems to be much higher on aftermarket pumps. Good luck.

On the other hand my son ended up putting two Bosch pumps in his 2001 WJ. Both bad out of the box. Like most new parts nowadays it's a crap shoot.
