    I am Replacing the fuel pump out of my 94 YJ and running into a bit of a concern that ask of the auto part stores carry a standard pump that Will work for the jeep but it doesn't seem to fit correctly into the stock fuel sending unit housing. This alone is making me question using it. If I have issues down the road, not going to be happy. Any suggestions? Should I suck up the $100 price difference and go to the dealer?

    I've had best luck with OEM parts. Everytime I've tried to save a few bucks, I end up replacing the part over and over.

    There are some things I think OK to take a chance on short-cutting. However, an item such as the fuel pump. which if it does not work, can require a difficult and time consuming fix is not one of them. It might be best handled by just making sure it is right the first time. Consider either the OEM or a better aftermarket from another vendor. "Universal" in a car is like "one size fits all" in a shirt....it seldom fits any right. :)

    Thanks all. I had a feeling and With my past trucks find the same experience. This is my first jeep and fuel pump swap. Not looking forward to doing it a second time.

    I got one from Autozone, cut a rectangle in my back floorboard,(careful only 1/4-close 1/2") down with a cutting wheel.
    Then you have ez access to the bolts and cover, remove and replace. I ran a piece of diamond plate bk over the hole and caulked it along with self tappers all around.
