An update on my issue.....

I only have my problem when the jeep has been sitting for awhile.....in this case I was out of town for about 2 weeks. I go to start it...starts right up...I get about half way out of the driveway and it dies....no fuel....

I think the fuel pump is loosing prime and is having trouble pulling fuel up. My fuel level is down to about 1/8th of a tank....pump is running but not pulling up fuel.

My fuel pump is a Carter designed for TBI and is mounted on the frame rail in front of the tank. (see pic)

So...at this point it's either a bad fuel pump (less than 2K miles on it) or it's just too high to have enough suction.

I really don't want to go the in-tank route.....should I move it, replace it (with like unit) or replace with different unit?
