There are tests to do. But 80+% of the time it is replacing the gas tank. Bad check valve where the hose connects to the tank. Inside the tank.

    You have a smoke machine and air compressor? You have to check the EVAP system. The system goes from the tank to the charcoal canister to the engine. We have the equipment to do the job at the shop. I have scanners and such I use at home and work. Evap smoke machines are not needed that much. I care not to spend $2000 on a machine I will use maybe once a year at home.

When filling up the pump stops as if the tank is full. I know it's not as I can only pump about a quarter of a gallon of gas at a time. I can hold the handle so the flow of gas is so slow it will fill

run the fault codes as the problem is normally about venting and this is a purge valve for the canister problem. having said that there are lot of poorly designed fillers on the market that will not allow quick fills as the pump hose trigger keeps cutting of no no reason. You may have to just take your time when filling like most people do.
In this country lock fillers have been banned and you have to hold the trigger until the tank is full. Stops idiots from putting the nozzle in the tank and then wandering off and allowing the tank to over fill and create a dangerous situation..

There is a fuel vapor recovery device inside the tank that affects fill rate if it malfunctions, it takes the dealer to diagnose it and only the dealer has the parts to fix it.

2008 Wrangler--whenever, and no matter how slowly I pump, I fill up the gas tank, I get blowback of fuel from the tank. If it happens at full speed pumping, it's enough to leave a puddle on the ground. ...

Yes it happens to others. No one seems to have a fix other than don't fill up. I have gotten to where I can pretty accurately estimate how many gallons I need to fill it, and then cut it off before that point.
