I suppose you could get creative, cut the metal fitting (metal end) off of the fuel line, add a fitting and splice in some extra tubing to get you to the filter, but I wanted to avoid any kind of chopping if at all possible.

Repair update today-
Got the front sway bar bushings in after getting the right ones from the dealer. Easy.
Rear control arm bushings went in pretty easy. It's a hell of a lot easier when you have a brother in law who has a lift and a few hours to spare. We used a cart with some extra tires on it and lowered the suspension on to it to manipulate the control arm back into alignment. The other side went on much easier since we had figured out how to do it.
Front, upper control arm bushings. This was a bitch to get out. Too much fight against the bolt to get it out. To get it in after changing out the bushings, we tried to strap it and winch towards the rear, but it just wasn't enough to get it to line up. We ended up using a bottle jack between the frame behind the front bumper and the upright on the front axle to get to go. Funny thing is, the other side went out and in without any problem at all. An hour for the first one, 10 min. for the second.
We were going to do the lower control arm bushings but the parts store gave me the wrong ones.
Fuel filter- Two lines not too bad. The one with the blue clip, a real pain in the ass.
I had the instructions with me that I got from the write up a few posts up on this thread, but we just couldn't get it. I even called Jeep service and they said you needed the special tool, even though the instructions said you didn't. We broke for lunch and when came back, we got it off. Don't ask me how, it was my brother in law's turn to take a swing at it.
Next up was plugs. Pretty easy. Put in a set of Bosch Platinums. The ones came out looked like I was burning pretty good, but the gap looked big, so I checked for the hell of it. .050-.055. Really old plugs, bad gapping when they were put in or both. Either way, I think my MPG will improve.
Last up was to Sea Foam spray the throttle body.
On the way home no squeaks at all. But it was kind of warm today (38) and it seems to get worse when it's really cold.
I'll report back on MPG's soon.
