Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee
I ran out of gas, that "killed" the fuel pump. so i got a new pump, filter, relay, and i still cant get fuel out of the tank.
i can hear the pump work. and i have a bout 5-6 gallons in the tank
could you please help me?
You mention you are not getting any fuel from the tank, I am assuming at the engine. Is it possible, that when you ran the tank totally dry, that sludge from the tank collected in the fuel line clogging it? Have you checked for this? Probably the easiest thing to do would be disconnect the fuel line at the engine, and the tank, and blow some air back through he hose to make sure it is clear.
Although I can't speak for any specific expertise on Fram Filters, I have been using them for years and they have always performed well. If you are getting no fuel, I sincerely doubt the problem is the filter, unless crud in the line has clogged it.

Make sure you have not installed the new fuel pump in backwards. It's a common mistake. Also FRAM changed their manufacturer for the fuel filters. The FRAM filter does not allow the correct amount of fuel to get into the line. They do not do Jeeps any justice at all. Make dure you get a MOPAR filter.
