The different hoses on your Jeep will not last forever, including the gas filler vent hose. Fortunately, you can rely on this to be a direct replacement part. In other words, it fits just like the old hose, without making any special modifications. Once you slap it on, your rig will run like before, and you can fill it up with gas problem-free. Even better, it's covered by a manufacturer's 5 year limited warranty, just in case it wears out too quickly.
This gas filler vent hose is only made of high-quality rubber, making it pliable enough to fit snugly at both ends. At the same time, the hose can endure the rigors of everyday use, including high temperatures, salt water splashes, road debris, freezing temperatures, etc. without becoming too brittle in the process. The interior diameter measures 11/16 of an inch, allowing for optimal flow.
You only need moderate mechanical skills to take on this installation job, because it is pretty straightforward. Basic tools are necessary as well, including a set of screwdrivers, needle nose pliers and some gloves. Basically, the installation involves removing the clips at either end of the old hose, then installing the new one and securing the clips to hold it on the fittings. Plan on about an hour, or maybe up to two, to finish this job.
This Gas Filler Vent Hose has been engineered as a direct replacement for 1987-1990 Jeep Wranglers (YJ)
