Fuel Filter Replacement interval for 14' Grand Cherokee
 
How hard will it be to replace the fuel filter and how often should you do it?

I don't know hard it is, but I don't think it is something you need to worry about. Assuming you are referencing the gas (vs diesel) version, according to WK2Jeeps:

"Two fuel filters are used. One is located at the bottom of the fuel pump module, the other is located inside the module. A separate frame mounted fuel filter is not used with any gasoline engine. They do not require normal scheduled maintenance. Filters should only be replaced if a diagnostic procedure indicates to do so."

Lifetime fuel filters have been around for awhile. My first was in an '87 Bronco II. When I sold it with 168,000 miles on it, it was still running fine.

I always wondered if at some point in time gas stations started using better filters in their tanks and dispensers.

There's probably something connected to the EPA requiring all fuel stations in the US that supply the public requiring better tanks/containment of fuels to prevent leaching and etc...

This started somewhere in the early 80s

Here's 1 EPA study link from 1986

There is a thread on fuel filter for diesel. Do a search.
