    Yeah, I know. I waited like a month after reading the DYI thread before I posted because I knew my opinion would not be very popular. Finally, my conscience won out.

    But that location was chosen for the same reason almost all fuel lines/filters and brake lines run along the inside of the frame, even though it causes them to rust: maximum protection. It is also part of the reasoning behind moving the pump to the tank and adding impact activated shutoffs to the "newer" (compared to our first gens) designs. Of course, electrical vs mechanical also provided efficiency improvements, but it also moved them to a safer location.

    I posted this in early Aug. I recently bought a 95 from a local salvage yard. Coincidentally, it had the condition I was describing. It had a left front hit which pushed the rad support, battery, and relay box rearward by 10-12 inches. There were four wires cut inside what was left of the relay box. The fuel line was kinked, but did not rupture.

    I now feel pretty good about saying, don't relocate your fuel filter to the left side fender apron.

    I had fun doing this. I don't look at it as a headache, I look at it as a challenge.
