Yeah that would have been and lucky for you that you installed that Fuel pressure gauge thats why its so important to invest in one for inside the Jeep, plus you can also log it on the Trinity as well if connected up to one of the Analog inputs...

Looks like I made it about 9 months. Jeep died on my way to work today.
Had it towed to my buddies shop, but won't know more until monday when he can get around to it.
On a plus side, looks like I have an appointment now to have the front wavetrac installed.

Been there and it is not fun!. AFR of 13 and popping out the exhaust isn't the best feeling lol. Fortunately I didn't blow my motor.

We have finally found the culprit. After talking with Justin Fore for a bit, I told him what was going on. He knew exactly what it was from. It seems the Gates hoses are coated on the outside and inside, but not coated all the way through. When we cut the lines to fit, it exposes a fresh uncoated area. Fuel starts to seep in there and they all break at the same spot, at the top. From now on, we don't cut the top for fitment, just the bottom. The bottom part has never broken on us. We believe it's just the top part because of the angle of the line.

Like we tell everyone..... we can't say sorry enough that it happened but we now know the way to prevent it from happening.

First time reading this thread so apologize for what is probably a repeat question but anything I should look for or do or was mine cut from the bottom as described above? Thanks Harrison!

Just look at your fuel pressure. If it starts dropping...... you've got the issue.

How funny is this. I just talked to Harry about getting a Fore Hat, and this thread pops up again. My ears must have been ringing!
