I used one from a 2003 Ram Diesel and it fit fine.
I think I switched the float arm from the one I removed from the liberty with the one than came with the Ram.
The wires for the pump were factory installed in the Liberty, however to access them they are conceiled under the carpet, drivers side passanger floor.
since the jeep's electrical connector to the unit only has 2 wires, even though it is the correct 4 prong plug, I removed the 2 brass connectors from the Liberty unit I removed and fitted them into the jeeps existing plug so that I had a 4 wire plug.
If you buy the fuel pump'sender from a junk yard, request the plug and at least 6" of the wire that connects to it. This will make it alot easier.
You can buy this connector after market, but they want a rediculous amount for it, like $60 or something.
Make sure your tank is low on fuel to make it easier to lift in and out.

It you go to the LostJeeps forum, there are step by step instructions.
I think I paid less than $50 for the Dodge unit on EBAY. it is a direct physical fit. It is spring loaded do self adjusting for the height.
HOpe this is of help: Bob

Just traded my 2005 because I couldn't find anyone who knew about it. Only 55K but the timing belt is now 7+ years old. Also kind of disappointed in all the little (not little $$) needed things to make it worthwhile to keep i.e. SEGR Provent, Green diesel chip, extra lift in-tank pump, etc. Could be a great vehicle if you want to be that involved. Hope it finds a good home. Never really had any problems with it. Unhooked the egr/maf at about 20k.

It is a not a car for someone who does not want to get involved.
It is like a Harley, needs some attention but well worth it for those who love the concept. Jeep and the EPA screewed up a really nice car. We just have to reverse what they did.

Dave in Georgia has a nice ride. Can't tell if it's 4wd with parasitic mopar front axle mpg loss. Bet that egr pollution of the intake doesn't exist. Not providing a direct link but you can find a nice Comanche in the October newsletter at rockauto. I'm sure that there are many examples out there but I don't seem to care about diesels anymore.
Why do I check in here then you might ask- to check on posts from winter and his saga.

Chrysler probably expect people to forget.
After 9 years my CRD is still running fine, the body doesn't rust, nothing is torn nor deteriorated due to the dog, carrying bicycles and grandchildren.
The only leak I had to fix came from the ferrules of the common rail pipes that I removed and re-installed.
The Provent is still waiting on a shelf, mileage has never been optimal but the engine is peppy, starts as I turn the key and still has the original glow plugs.
I had the suspensions and wheel alignment checked after a technical inspection and everything was found safe and sound.
The pollution test done at several engine regimes and accelerations reveals 'lower than minimal' values.
This 150HP engine was declared 'de-rated' compared to the 163HP version and I still don't understand what 'de-rated' means; could it be a distinction?

I jusf installed a eco tune from Green Diesel will let you know how it works.
So far ( No light on the dash,Has been on for months)
More RPM and quick to start off the stop line.
Have been off work for a week,so can not tell about the milage so far.
I do about 100 miles a day.
Oct 31, 2012 (7:37 am)
with mine the eco-tune had little if any effect on miliage, the provent seemed to have a positive effect on miliage and I did it prior to the eco-tune. the eco-tune had a noticeable positive effect on power and does get rid of the check engine light due to the provent.
My CRD was getting 30+ mpg on the freeway from the day I bought it after disconnecting the maf (or map, I get them confused) sensor.

My Jeep always averaged 22.5 mpg throughout the year, and 11L/100Km is what the CRD was supposed to do according to our tax(es) calculation.
I use A/C, 4WD every now and then, give the engine time to warm-up in the winter, drive 130 Km/h all day on the motorway when needed, do service every 15,000 miles with mineral oil and never have anything to worry about; except perhaps to replace it one day.
